Getting started again...

Monday, February 28, 2011

Another year has gone by and I am still fat. I have reached the point where I am fed up with being fat, lacking energy and motivation to get started with this lifestyle change. I am just starting to find the motivation and am looking forward to seeing it build with every pound lost. I know that the only way to get started is to track everything and be accountable for what I put into my mouth and for not getting my lazy butt off the couch.

As I tracked my food consumption today, I thought that I had everything logged in. Then I remembered something. Then I remembered something else and something yet again. When all was said and done I had gone over in Calories/Fat/Carbs and was way under in drinking my water. I believe this is part of realizing that how much I actually put into my mouth. And is a necessary part of the process.

Tomorrow will be a better day...I am hopeful.

    I agree, tracking is a great way to start the process. I was completely shocked at how bad some of the stuff I was eating was for me. I am not a big eater, but I like my chips and candy. Now I know to keep those things as a treat and keep to one serving. I am learning to like foods that are better for me...beans, veggies, whole grains.

    Remember to make small, sustainable changes and don't change too many things at once. Slow and steady! Also, don't forget the number on the scale is only ONE measurement of success. Your energy level, how clothes fit, and your successful streaks can help keep you motivated. Good luck on your journey to a healthier lifestyle!
