reinventing sparkpeople

Tuesday, July 09, 2013

2 years after my baby was born I still carry every single pound I lost during pregnancy. I have tried a lot of diets and exercises but didn't get anywhere. I refuse to give up. I started tracking my food couple weeks ago. every day I end up exceeding my limit. but at least I am aware of how much I eat.

    Awareness gives you the power of choice. You can't change a behavior you aren't aware of. Pull up the SP nutrition reports so you can better see where the excess calories are. You might try starting by cutting back on specific high-calorie extras like bread with butter or breading on meat. If you are consuming 800-1000 calories in one meal, that is the place to start. Oh, and the goals tool. If you haven't set up your long, mid, and short-term goals, that's another great thing to do. If your goal is to lose x lbs by x date, the goals tool will tell you how many calories you need to consume and burn each day. In any given week, you want to consume less than you burn. I find tracking very annoying, but equally useful when I take the time to log everything.

    Awareness and knowledge give you the power of choice. emoticon

    Keep tracking every bite. Knowledge is power. Track your exercise too, so that you can see if you are burning more than your are taking in. You can find out by looking at the "My Trackers" tab in the upper left hand corner of your page. Click on reports, then look for the calorie differential report.

    You have to start some where and experiment with different ways of eating and living to find your groove. emoticon emoticon emoticon
