This website is making me crazy! I managed to lose over 100lbs without counting a single calorie before I joined sparkpeople, but now I am obsessing over every little thing I do or do not put in my mouth! I am no longer going to track my foods. I just can't work it out this way. I am still going to come here daily, I will blog, track my fitness minutes, rally around my spark friends, but the food tracking is not for me.
Back to the drawing board this week with the Decaslim, because I haven't even bothered to take it in a few days now. I start counseling this week too, maybe that will help me in the long run with weight loss and keeping it off this time.
I got rid of all my "fat" clothes so there is no going back!

    I can't do it either, I become obsessed with every single thing I put in my mouth, and riddled with guilt and self doubt if I 'fall from grace'. I listen to my body. I eat when it tells me I'm hungry, even if it's not a meal time. I have whatever I like, but I eat it very slowly, making sure I enjoy every single mouthful and I stop the moment I am full. I have resigned from the 'clean plate' club, leftovers go into the bin. My stomach is not the rubbish sack. I also listen to a hypnotherepy CD rather than have counselling. So far I have lost 10kg since mid march. Hope this helps, keep on with the good work. emoticon

    I'm so glad that you get to start counseling. And I TOTALLY understand about the food tracking thing. I can't do it on here. I have a notebook and I write down everything I eat, but it's next to impossible for me to do it on any website. I've tried a few different ones. Writing it down just makes me more aware of what I'm eating. It helps a lot.

    What an awesome feeling it must have been to throw away the fat clothes.

    Also... Happy Birthday. I know it's not yours, but I've found that kids' birthdays mean more to mom than they do the kids. After all, it was YOU doing all the work 17 years ago today.
