#@##!&&&%% Food Tracker

Saturday, July 21, 2012

Aargghhhhh! Tell me it isn't true!!! I knew there was a reason I avoided that food tracker thingee!!! It turned my low-fat lobster dinner into a caloric nightmare just because I garnished it with a stick of melted butter. And, what about those french fries I ate at the local diner??? I dipped them in low-fat ranch...doesn't that counteract the deep-fat frying??? What about the late-night snack I ate over the sink...didn't the calories go down the drain???

Okay, my first day of tracking everything that went into my mouth was an eye opener? I ate a lot more than I thought I did. I can see now why the pounds are just melting away. Shocking, revealing, but worth the effort!

    Oh my gosh - your post, and KateinMichigan's reply truly made me laugh out loud.

It does help to keep our sense of humor through this journey, though - doesn't it? I need to remind myself of that sometimes!

Good first step, though. It is an eye opener, isn't it?

    YUup. I went to Panera and thought I was being all good, eating SOUP and 1/2 sandwich. NOt even a BOWL -- a cup of soup.

NINE. HUNDRED. Calories.

BTW: I commented on your blog because anybody who swears at the food tracker is a potential best friend. :-)

    OH, girl, I have been THERE!! The first time I tracked, I seriously considered running away and crying and hiding under a bed - assuming I could fit. Count this as a solid learning experience and start fresh all over.

    You certainly got that lesson quickly!

We can do this. Really. We can!
