Not counting calories until January...

Thursday, December 09, 2010

I'm not going to be counting calories anymore until January. I am too stressed out about it right now and have too much going on to worry about every little thing that goes into my mouth. But just because I'm not counting calories anymore doesn't mean I'm going to pig out =) I'm actually going to keep doing what I'm doing. I know exactly how much I should eat and what and when. I know what to stay away from and I'm pretty much just going to watch my portions. I'll serve myself once and that's it. No seconds. I'll make sure to savor every bite of food that goes in my mouth and drink lots of water. I'll still keep track of my water intake though. And now that I know bread is a big no no for me I'll be sticking to low carb crisp bread. I can have a couple of those and still be good on carbs for the day. =) Today I totally skipped lunch though and went to the grocery store on an empty stomach. Oops! Won't be doing that again, or just have a big breakfast!

I'll start counting calories again in January. And I'll continue to exercise as well. As often as I can. Hopefully it will be good enough to keep losing weight. I mean hey, I lost about 18 of these pounds without even tracking my calories and exercising! I've only lost about 3-4 pounds after joining this site. :-) So I think I'll be good! Just got to be super strict on myself. That's all.

So I'm hoping this takes some pressure off me. I mean, I have spent a good half hour here each night putting all my calories in and adding foods not listed since products here are different, different brand names, different calories probably. I don't know. It's been hard and a bit stressful. I haven't been able to do anything else. Hopefully it goes ok though. I might write down what I'm eating anyway. Just keep a food journal. Maybe on here. As if I don't post enough already. hehe
