Today's Spark Coach question was "What have you learned since tracking your food? What challenges have you run into?"
Skipping to the second part of the question, my biggest challenge is tracking! I start off okay, but by the evening, I lose my motivation to track. Unfortunately, this is where self-sabotage almost always happens.
To answer the first part of the question, I've learned that my weight problem and challenges don't stem from my age, the fact that I had babies (20+ years ago!), or any other "beyond-my-control" reason. My weight problem and challenges stem from the fact that I eat too much. Tracking (when I do it) helps me to stay within a reasonable calorie range. And when I do stay within that range and track everything, I actually feel better and proud of myself.
My question to anyone who might read this post is what have you learned, what are your challenges, and how/why do you sabotage yourself?
