Okay so I've been trying to eat really good for the last month or so... I mean I normally eat good things, but now I am entering all my food in the nutrition tracker. This has helped so much! I even enter stuff when i know i'll go over my limit for the day- my boyfriend asked me if i enter the wine or candy or other stuff. he doesn't believe that I actually do enter it. But what would be the point of cheating on the tracker? I'm only cheating myself. Silly boy.
Anyways- I went grocery shopping the other day (fridge was bare!) and got lots of good stuff. Now I'm super motivated and have been trying to work out consistently.
About 1 1/2 years ago i was doing the same thing (as i'm doing now) and it totally worked. I lost about 7-8 lbs and felt really good about myself. but now.. dating someone for the last year who is trying to gain weight has made me also gain weight.
I'm really upset at myself for the weight that I've gained and am now determined to get it off! I feel like I'm in a good place now and really feel like I'm going to stick with it.
So... now I'm just waiting for my body to catch up to my mind! Come on weight loss! :)

    Keep up the good work! Tracking food is the most important for me too. It keeps me focused, almost obssesed, on eating the right foods. I am hoping that my example will flow over to the other people in my life.

    You are doing a great job. Yes you are right you can cheat the tracker by not putting stuff in but your body gets the calories so what is the point. I log everything and if there is something I don't know how to log (food brought to a pot luck or something like that) I make notes in the note section below. Needless the calories and other stuff don't show in the tracker but the stuff in noted as having been ate but not in there. Keep up the good work. You can do it.

    Take care.
