Yes I got the message! I hate tracking food, but I really hate not losing weight. As much as I hate tracking meals, I need to keep doing it over and over. I know after a few weeks it will be easy to do and it won't seem like a big task.
Day 3 of my streak. I have set the bar low. Just track calories, I don't have to stay in my calorie range or pre-plan my meals, just consistently record what I eat. Yesterday I set up a food group 'egg mcmuffin sunwood' for the open faced scrambled egg muffin I created. I will post a picture and recipe for this delicious and easy to make hot breakfast.
I was at a Chinese seafood restaurant for lunch today and ordered light foods. I was mindful I would be recording it later. I made a group 'lunch - chinese' with rice, shrimp, ground pork, soy sauce and wonton wrappers for a total of 643 calories. My calorie range is 1,590 - 1,940, and I am at the low end of the range with my planned dinner.
It sucks to spend time tracking food, but it sucks even more to stay this big. When I go shopping for clothes it's such a chore. I get frustrated with the way the clothes look on me, and basically they all look the same, cloth draped over a large body. I want to look slimmer, I want to move easier and I want to be healthier. Tracking meals is a small price to pay for have a slim healthy body!
