There is a saying my Weight Watchers leader said...

Wednesday, January 13, 2010

What you eat in private shows up in public" What made me think about this was a friend's blog she made.

Maybe you don't write down you ate that whole pizza but then when you weigh in and the scale says that that pizza has shown up on your hips, belly, butt, wonder "where did that come from" and then we are at a loss because we don't know the truth either. But-- if you write what you bite--then it is there in black and white exactly what you had so you can look back and say-- Oh I know why I failed to release weight this week-- it was that salty, greasy, carbohydrate loaded pizza I had. So in the future to remain accountable, I tell people always write what you bite so when you refer back to the results, you know what weeks you want to mimic and which ones you want to forget.. As long as you remain accountable, you will remain steady and releasing those pounds!!

My intention is to write what I bite no matter how bad it is!!

    This is so true. And I find myself eating something after I've closed my tracker and not going back to put it in. I know I'm not fooling anybody. Not even fooling myself when I think about it. I'm trying to plan track instead of post track. That way I know what I'm going to eat through the day and if it's not on there I probably don't have room in the calories for it.

    I definitely write down everything that I bite, even when I know I should have done better. It works two-fold. It helps me to know where I need to improve and it helps OTHERS to see that we are all human and make similar eating mistakes. Thanks for the post Tracy. I hope that work went alright for you. Love, Dawn

    I think record everything we eat, no matter how "bad", is also go because sometimes we are able to see that it really isn't as bad as we thought and that we can recover from our indiscretion. I think that helps us let go of any guilt associated with overeating which helps us continue to grow healthier.

    You are absolutely right, Tracy! We 'fool' ourselves too often. I tell everyone to write everything down. You don't have it share it with the Spark world if you don't want to.

    I'm with you on that. Anytime I stray away from the Nutrition tracker, pounds "magically" re-appear, but when I track honestly and consistently the pounds melt away. We must write what we bite!!!

  I agree with you on the whole write it down no matter how bad it is. I just know that for me, personally, if I have to write down what I eat (which I do) and put it out there for all to see, I won't eat it. There's a reason why I'd be embarrassed to write that I ate a whole pizza or a package of cookies, because it's not good for me so I shouldnt be eating it in the first place.

By the way, i LOVE that saying... "What you eat in private shows up in public." I don't think it gets any more real than that.
