Geez, I haven't posted anything in a while. Well, probably because I haven't been too proud of my progress. Or lack thereof.
I use the calorie tracker almost every day. I had a Weight Watchers account that I used also. One day, I posted my "points" and even though I thought I ate really healthy and normal sized portions, I was over in points and still had the rest of dinner to get through. So I clicked on over to here. I put the same exact food in, same exact totals and guess what? It was around 800 calories! That is not enough for me, sorry. I don't think it's enough for a guinea pig, to be honest. So I was very disillusioned with that costly program. Back to SP I slunk. Slinked? Whatever.
And they make use of such fake food! Sugar free, fat free chemical concoctions that are so weird. I'm sorry, but I use half and half in my coffee, a 1/4 cup over 2 mugs and I do not want to even think of what is in fat free half and half. Yeesh.
So why did I go to the dark side?
Well, I wanted to drop weight and I wanted a quick fix. I know, I know. In my head I know that is not an answer, it's impossible, but I am so very tired of seeing the same freaking weight on that scale every week, every week.
Then I had a real emotional train wreck here a few weeks ago and I thought, "I can't keep this up. I need to be strong, healthy and stable." This is not who I am supposed to be."
And so here I am. And I am proud to say that I am a JERF. I Just Eat Real Food. I have learned things from every eating style I have tried. I will post that later or next week once I get my head around it. But I have to say, I am happy to be back among the pointless.
