I'm taking a break from using the nutrition tracker. I'm a little nervous to do this because tracking my calories has been integral to my weight loss progress. But I don't want to have to count calories for the rest of my life, so I'd like to see how I do without it for a while. I think not using the nutrition tracker will actually make me listen to my body more because I won't be able to rely on the tracker. I will have to trust myself to eat when I'm hungry and stop when I'm full.
I probably should wait to do this until I've reached my goal weight, but I feel like I need a break - so I'm taking one. I'm honestly just getting tired of it. I cook a lot of homemade meals for dinner and it's really time consuming to enter these every night to get an accurate calorie count.
I'll be keeping an eye on my weight to make sure I don't start gaining. If I do, it'll be back to tracking for me.
