I made a pact with myself. I'll do my best to eat healthy and mindfully, but since November of 2013 I'm not tracking my food any more. I tracked for 5 full years and credit tracking with enabling me to lose weight and keep it off. But now I'm trying to learn to listen to my body and eat normally. My pact dictates that if I'm over my target average weight, I get two weeks to cut back to get it back or return to tracking.
I'm trying to average no more than 132. A range of 129-134 is acceptable, but staying at 134 is not okay with me.
June 12th was the deadline I set two weeks ago when I was over. Yesterday I was just .2 pounds over my target of 132 and I briefly considered whether I would extend my deadline. But, I didn't have to. This morning I weighed 131.8.
What a victory!!
PS Once I really have this maintaining without tracking down comfortably, I am going to work on paying less attention to the scale and weighing far less often.
