Tracking

Monday, July 29, 2013

I've successfully tracked all my eating for a full week. It feels good that I was honest with myself consistently all week. I was shocked to see how many calories I was eating...it's no wonder that I haven't lost any weight!

I also spent a few minutes reviewing what I ate on those days to see if there were any patterns that I can course correct. I think I might need to eat more calories at breakfast and lunch...maybe I'm too hungry by the time I get home from work and that's why I don't feel satiated?

Today I feel good and for the first time in a week, am within my calorie range. I think part of the reason is that I ate more healthy foods at breakfast and added protein at lunch. Plus had LOTS of veggie side choices for dinner.

How do I keep the momentum going for tomorrow?

    I think you have hit the nail on the head -- more calories at breakfast and lunch. I have the same problem--I'm so worried about "running out" I often eat only 500 calories total for B&L. Then after my 700-800 cal. dinner I'm STUFFED. Doesn't seem like a good way to be.

    How do you keep the momentum going? You just keep doing the same things. It's like brushing your teeth or taking a shower, you don't ask yourself "how do I keep the momentum going to do this tomorrow", you just DO IT!

    Good luck, you got this!

    emoticon job ! when I took the time to track is when the scale started moving. I was shocked too at how fast the cals added up .

    You're doing better, said you felt a little better, if you want to succeed & feel good in your clothes & help your health, you'll continue.

    Your desire to change must greater than your desire to stay the same. emoticon
