So, I've always been a skinny guy. As in a toothpick. A shrimp. The guy who disappears if he turns sideways. Yeah, that guy. And I've proven repeatedly that I can eat a TON and not gain any weight. I just couldn't understand why that was.
A few days ago, I found Spark People. I started tracking my calories, and setting nutrition goals. What I've learned is that even though I can eat a lot, I don't do it habitually. Without the habit, I don't gain. So I've got to teach my body to always want more food, and of course exercise to make the pounds the kind that I can be proud of.
What's frustrating to me is that I feel like I eat a lot more than I apparently do. I've really been trying here! But, even with the frustration, there is still hope. I HOPE that by tracking my nutrition, I'll be better able to keep in the habit so that I can gain weight. So if you read this and you think "I know just what he needs!", go ahead. Comment or message me.
