Day 4 Track all Food on Spark

Thursday, July 15, 2010

Here it is, almost 9 PM. so far so good: still in my calorie range. I am not going to weigh myself until the last day in July. The scale can be deceiving, and for me the very early loss is mostly water weight.

I measured my waist today, and it was an inch down. The tape measure will be my only gauge of my progress until the end of July.

I guess those handfuls of pecans I put into my oatmeal daily really contained a lot more calories than I thought. Now I resist eating because I have reached the end of my calorie range and don't want to go over. emoticonNo to this. emoticonNo to this, too. emoticonAnd no to this, also.

Sunday is my grandson's birthday, and we are invited over for a party. I am bringing some veggies, and my low calorie cheesecake. Don't want to be a party-pooper, but I am determined to stay within my range.

    Good job on staying within your calorie range. And you're right, the scale is not the only way to measure your success. I know some people totally obsess over the scale.

    Taking food is a great way to make sure that there will be healthy beneficial food there for you to eat. I have been tracking my food on a daily basis and have found that it is a great tool. Sometimes you think you are doing great, until you see it in writing.

    Keep up the great work!

    Bringing your own goodies is a great way to combat the party time munchies. Just remember portion control is key and you will do great!
