I'm not using the food tracker...what?!

Wednesday, January 04, 2012

I haven't been using the food tracker lately. I think this is because I tend to eat the same foods over and over again. So by now I know how many calories I'm taking in on a daily basis. Which is a good thing, because I am still very conscience of what I am eating at any given time.

I'm happy to report that I lost 4 pounds in the month of December. I didn't give in to temptation. And I think I've baked more in the last 2 months then I have in the last 10 years. I guess having a 7 year old in the house will do that to you.

This whole thing is very strange for me. For the first time in my life I am completely committed to my overall health and fitness. Where as before I would make excuses or find excuses to overeat, continue to smoke, and generally make bad choices. This time I'm not giving myself any leeway. I am totally focused on health...obsessed with it actually. I quit smoking, and I have been steadily losing weight. Although, I have to admit that I thought that it would come off a lot faster then it has. Still I'm not discouraged, I continue to move forward and I discovered that I have more self control than I ever thought possible.

I'm looking forward to 2012. Simply because I can't wait to see the results of all my hard work and determination.

    Good luck in 2012. The going may seem slow, but just think about how much better a slow loss compared to a quick gain.
