What am I doing?....no clue


Wednesday, April 04, 2012

So I'm back....again....I've been all over the place.

I've been working out...and eating well....but of course, not tracking a thing. I think that is my downfall. So....I'm back to tracking. It worked for 16lbs and then I got comfortable and thought I knew what I was doing. I get so busy and forget to log on after each meal and post what I ate. So, I have a little notebook now that I'm going to force myself to at least write down what I eat and then come back at least each night and write down....the problem is, what if I over eat in that time? How am I going to know before it's too late, at the end of the day that I ate 200 calories more.

I've got to figure out a way to track along the way. I got a new phone last week so I'm going to download the app on my phone, I also have it on my tablet so that's a start.

Any-who....just wanted to say I'm back and back at it....again. *rolling my eyes*

I can at least say I'm not gaining too much weight....not a full pound....yet. *sigh*

    I know you're frustrated right now, but you have solutions to get over the hurdle. Keep on striving one step a time & you'll find those pounds shedding before long.

You are right, the tracking makes all the difference. I track in advance. When I tracked what I ate after I ate it I often found the foods I ate had more calories than I had expected. Staying on track for me is planning my meals and then sticking to my plan!!

    I've not been able to download the SP links on my android for some reason or another. However, my niece has an i-Phone and she downloaded the following site on her phone and she's very happy with it.

She keeps track of her food and exercises. I am going to try downloading the same site onto my own phone.

Good luck!

    Most journey's in life are not straight, clear, flat paths. They are bumpy, windy and sometimes hidden by trees/bushes and have detour signs. My point? That is how this whole weight loss process is - trying simply to stay on that path and figuring out how to do that when it doesn't seem all that clear or easy. It's a matter of figuring out how to get all of that food logged in, get in our exercise, our fruits and veggies and keep motivation. Then we think we get it down and we scootch off the path a little or something becomes a road block. As long as your always looking to get back on the path or fighting to stay on it then you are moving along. Don't get discouraged - you will get there!!
Personally for me, the SP app has made a huge difference. It's so easy to get on there and log in the food/exercise at anytime.

Great job blogging - it shows your desire is strong enough to make things happen.

    We all get discouraged but you just need to recognize your mistake(s), pick your head back up & work at it like you've never worked before! I absolutely LOVE tracking my calories, especially after I realized exactly how many I was consuming! Close to 2000 a day with just mindless snacking! I've cut down to 1200 max and have lost 4.8 lbs in the last week and a half!

You can accomplish anything! I have total faith in you!!
