So you are what you eat!

Monday, August 10, 2009

I learned everything I needed to know....I know how to eat right, now....I don't need to write down what I eat....I run 4 days a week, I don't have to watch what I eat...........
Why am I not loosing any weight????

So....It turns out that It is really easy to fool yourself into thinking you are eating right! I was sure that I was skilled enough to do it on my own....NOT! I didn't loose any weight in 2 months even though I was training for a half marathon. I stopped logging my food after I had gone on vacation and I figured that I had learned enough and I didn't have to write everything down anymore. took me 2 months but I finally realized that I wasn't loosing any weight. I knew that the only thing I was doing different was not logging my food.
So...I started back the other day....and I am already seeing results!
I figure I won't have to do this forever...But I do have another 20 pounds to loose. So I write things down for a couple of months and then I can move into maintain mode!!!

    I know! I feel your pain, sistuh! I am in the same boat. I got so caught up in the eat healthy thing that I was eating too much of the right things.

    Amen Sister. I think logging food has been my biggest key to success. Keep it up and that last 20 pounds will come off.

    Oh yeah, I'm sort of in maintenance but I still log all my food, both so I don't gain, and so I don't lose any more. Keep moving and tracking!
