An experiment

Thursday, September 30, 2010

I've tried an experiment for the last few days. I decided to stop doing nutrition tracking to see what happened. Unfortunately, I reverted right back to terrible eating habits. I've been eating way too much, and eating sweets again. I seem to have a mindset that if I don't write it down, the calories don't count :) I've gained a little weight. This is depressing. I've also noticed I tend to eat until my stomach hurts, then eat more to try to feel better. That's absurd and is one of the reasons I was so overweight.

So I've decided to restart diet stage 3. And resume tracking. I need to permanently change how I think about eating, and I'm not there yet. I also need to find more ways to exercise this week. My kids are out of school on break and I don't have my usual time to work out.

On the up side, I've lost almost 5 pounds in September. Only 7 pounds to go until I'm officially "normal weight" (BMI under 25). 17 pounds to go to my ultimate goal.

    Won't that feel good? I'm still working on getting out of the obese box.
    I know what you mean about what you don't write down doesn't count. When my vision started changing and I could no longer read the labels it was like if I didn't know size or how many calories were in a serving I could just eat it all.
