Cleaning out my favorite foods list

Wednesday, August 11, 2010

Okay, I got tired of scrolling through what seemed like hundreds of foods in my favorites list when documenting what I had eaten each day. So, I got serious about deleting. I've been keeping foods in that list that I haven't eaten in months or even years but couldn't seem to make myself remove them. I think I was afraid I was telling myself "you will never be able to eat that food again." Now, there certainly are foods that I don't eat every day or even every month but I have NOT forbidden anything from my diet.

So, I just removed all the saved entries for McDonalds, Taco Bell, etc. I removed all the pizzas, ice cream, cookies and cake. I can't believe the anxiety it caused but I think I'll be okay. emoticon What a weird feeling.

    Isn't it so rewarding when you realize how much positive and healthy progress you have made...and just simple tasks like that help along the way.

    KUDOS to you...girlfriend.

    I never says never I treat maybe about every 3 months to food that I can;t eat all the time like chicken marsala.

    I hear you sparkfriend. I hate deleting food from my favorite list. Especially the sweet stuff.

    Funny, I was doing the same thing last night. If you do happen to eat one of those foods again, you can always just search it or enter it again, but I totally understand the anxiety.

    By The Way,
    PATS/SAINTS tomorrow night!! Are you ready for some Football!!!!
