Keep It Real To Avoid Falling Into A Trap


Friday, September 06, 2013



Whatever I do on my journey needs to be sustainable so my success continues.

Nutrition Tracking is important and so is running the Daily Nutrition Feedback Report.

On the Diet and Nutrition Forum in response to "honesty" -- HAZELHERTZ wrote an articulate and thoughtful reply

part of which I'm re-posting here:

"Tracking enables biofeedback. You learn from it. It takes a long time, but you start to see what your challenges are (time of day, month, outside stressors, triggers). You can go back and look over the past week, the past month, see how your food, exercise, and other tracking correlate with your feelings, your physical condition, your weight."

    I agree, like I said before, I kept tracking even during my 4-6 week binge period and it helps to look back at it now to see what I could have done differently and how I was able to slowly turn it around. Painful at the time but well worth being honest about it in my blog and with tracking. I feel that it was an important key in getting back on track with my program. Tracking keeps it real. emoticon

    I have learned so much from tracking that healthy eating has become a habit most days that I don't think about! I've become my new normal!

Just like anything else, this is a learning process, you have to keep reviewing your material to be successful!

Great blog!

    This is so true! One of the things I've always been glad about is that I kept all my weight loss diaries going back several years. They tell me what worked, what used to work and now doesn't work, and also gives me some history that let's me know how my body responds to a particular plan. I didn't realize how important this information would turn out to be until just this week!!

Thanks for posting. As always, you are spot on!!
