Getting food in check again

Friday, January 24, 2014

Time to get some things written down. I have struggled, struggled to get the weight off that I put back on. My exercise is excellent, but still the weight has hung on. The joy of getting older!!

I have realized that my food must be in order too in order to lose so finally I am back on tracking my food which does help tremendously. There's nothing like the second thought before eating something about how it will look and add up on my food diary!! Good accountability!!

I am praying that the small weight loss I've had will continue as I eat wisely. It's almost time for me to bike ride again after the ice melt and I know it will be harder with the extra poundage I have so I best get serious about losing!!
Have a great day spark friends!! emoticon

    Yup!! Measuring and monitoring is the solution for me. I use my trackers faithfully because it's what works for me!!

    We're back to the single digits on Tuesday. I'm so tired of this icky dirty gray snow and all the ice. I need to head for some place green and growing...a nice covering of pristine white will freshen up my perspective!!

    emoticon ...Getting back to tracking will help you meet your goal. It's interesting to see how much we are REALLY eating once it's all down on paper. Measuring foods is always good for me, too, b/c I can be the Queen of Portion Distortion. It would be nice if we could out-exercise our diet, but diet is a key part of the equation. emoticon

    I share your pain. It's difficult to know that despite eating less and less while exercising more and more, I struggle to maintain a healthy weight. Old age isn't for sissies!
