No, I am not journaling. I just find that I don't want to take the time and I have a hard time figuring out how many calories...I can do it on paper, but to actually put it in my journal here, it doesn't work. Because if I make a sauce without a recipe, I don't have any way to .....oh bother. I don't need to explain myself. It is my choice. I AM being careful what I eat. I measure what I am eating so know if I am getting too much meat or too much pasta or whatever.
The idea is, I am being careful. I am eating correctly. I am not filling up on bread or other junk. I am eating lots of veggies. I am not eating sweets and if I do, I am careful to have only a small piece.
Have I lost weight? I don't know. Yes, I weighed myself a while ago, although I said I wouldn't....and I got discouraged for a minute but this is about eating healthy NOT about diet. IF I lose weight, that will be a plus.
I am going to continue eating healthy. I will continue measuring as it keeps me aware of what I am eating. I will NOT stress myself out about counting every calorie. Or worry if I am not getting enough calories. I will be careful of portions but I am not going to spend a large part of my day thinking of food. What I can eat, what I can't. What I will cook. If I put sauce on it, how can I count those calories when I am only going to actually eat a couple of teaspoons of the sauce. I have done that for too long and that is NOT what I want to do. My world should not revolve around food...eating too much of it is bad and stressing about what I can eat is bad, also. I won't do it. I will buy healthy and eat healthy.
