Sick and tired of being sick and tired!

Thursday, June 09, 2011

I have really had it of going between 286 and 294. This has been going on since January. I am really tired and very frustrated now. Just sick and tired of being sick and tired.

I did a lot of reading on calorie and nutrients. I even went back and looked at some of my past calorie tracking sheets. I was eating quite a lot of carbs. In fact, they overtook everything else.

Plan of action: Track everything I put in my mouth. This week I even learned how to look at the bottom of my calorie track sheet to see how much of each nutrients I am eating. That's how I found out about the carbs.

So I eliminated a lot of it and really kept on the right tract this week. I cannot wait to see what the scale is going to say on my weigh-in day which is Saturday.

I gave myself my motivated talk that no matter what the scales says on Saturday I am staying on track because I know how to eat now.

    I've learned to look for non-scale victories, too. That makes the journey a continuation, not a stop and start over journey!

    That's the spirit, hang in there. I love that positive attitude.

    I think we all go through that phase where we stop tracking and find we're then off track! Good for you for monitoring your nutrition and learning what works for you.
You're right - no matter what the scale says, you DO know how to take care of you, and you are doing it.

    That is the right attitude to have. emoticon

    The nutrition tracker really taught be so much. When I started I was having a hard time staying in limits with carbs and fat, and now I sometimes have a hard time getting enough. It's amazing how that changes when you see it all laid out like that.

You are on the right track - I am already feeling so much better now that I am monitoring these things (and MOST weeks the weight comes off too).
