finally starting to track my food

Saturday, February 26, 2011

Well, I have actually GAINED weight since joining spark people BUT ITS ALL MY FAULT not the site or support because I havent been serious about my goals or tracking them.
I finally printed out sheets that list my meals and snacks and made about a weeks worth and stapled them together. Now when I eat something I write it down and I have NO EXCUSES! I can throw it in my purse and take with me to work etc. So, when I dont have access to a computer I can still track my progress!
So far I am only writing down my calories and each week I will add a catagory like fat etc. and I write down my weight and date. I want to be able to go back and look at my week when I lose or dont lose and see what is or isnt working.
I have been struggling so long and I am so proud of myself for finally starting to do this! Yay for me! Yay for spark people for the support! Thank you!

    Journaling my food was always the hardest for me! And on top of it, I was absolutely positive that I wasn't eating THAT many calories, well...since tracking, I am absolutely positive that I was eating 3X the amount of calories that I was supposed to! Tracking is always difficult, but it is by far the best tool in our arsenal.
