Well there it was. The restart.
I started out in january completely motivated and all. And the weight loss happened really quickly once I started tracking food intake again. And then.. like every year.. beginning of febuary I had a I think I can do this on my own moment again. Which means, I stop tracking, I start slacking and allowing myself for treats I am not supposed to eat. And then you wonder.. well the weightloss went great, why did it stop...
Because you stopped tracking food intake... you dummy....
And after I realised I had given myself permission to start slacking I had a firm talk with myself.
You want to be healthy, fit in that airplane seat and wear cool clothes... you better get that ass off the couch and stop eating all those things!
Well actually I just started tracking my food intake again. It gives me very quick insight in what I am supposed to do. We drove our car to work for the last 3 weeks, because it was freezing cold. So there went my exercise out the door. Today was the first day I started cycling again. And after tracking my food intake for about a week, today I had lost a pound already.
It's going steady but slowly, if I just keep up the good work. It really is that easy.
(And I told my BF to start cooking less, because everything I didn't eat, he would eat. So I am not losing 12 pounds, for him to gain 12... And he got the message. )
We're getting there! I am really positive!.
