Food Journal... Does it make you think about food obsessively???

Thursday, June 13, 2013

I'm not using my food tracker to the best of its potential.
The journal is supposed to make me more aware of my food; not more obsessive about it. Right?
I realized that over the last few days that all I do is think about food.
I think about what I'm going to eat. I think about the calories.
I think about how I'm going to make time to get to SparkPeople and track it.
I think about what I want to eat instead of what I've planned to eat.
I think about the fact that all I want to do is eat bad carbs.
I've actually gained weight since I started journaling my food.

Dear God, help me get this under control. I cannot do this by myself.

    I have been told by my "life coach" to trac my food what ever it is when ever it is and how i feel when i eat it... I have become obsessed with eating jusst to see how i feel when i do it... bad idea... I now wait till the end of the day to trac. I have found that i am not searching out food to write down..I also havnt forgotten to trac anything .. good luck it is a tough on.

    I've been where you are and it's not a happy place! Are you trying to keep a food journal that is separate from the food tracker? I hope not. I log onto SP twice a day--morning and night. I track my food at those times. It sounds like you should not keep a food journal, but it's really important to track your food. weigh and measure!! Best wishes!
