Food Journaling is an eye opener

Sunday, July 29, 2012

So, day 2 and yesterday was a good day. Reviewing my nutrition tracker is an eye opener. Keeping a food journal has always been the pits for me. I think this is because I don't want to see what I'm doing. It reminds me of what I've learned about denial; If I don't see it I don't have to admit it. Like when I've been way over served and think no one can see me dancing like a fool or kissing the guy next to me. My friends and I have always had the Vegas philosophy; what happened last night didn't really happen. Usually when I started a diet, I would be perfect for the first few weeks or months tracking my food, exercising and bragging about how I've finally found the perfect diet and how easy it is and sharing all my new found dieting expertise to anyone who'd listen. I felt like I was showing how perfect I can be. The next thing I know, I'm at a party, eating and drinking like I never did before. I'd get up the next day thinking I'm a miserable excuse for a human being and I'm a failure and blah blah blah. Next I know, I'm fatter than when I started and everyone is giving me the I knew this would happen look. So what's my point? looking back at this it seems ridiculous. So what if I drank a little too much and choose the chips and dip over the club soda with a twist and crudite platter (although, today this sounds like a plan). I really am hoping that this revelation is not just my usual hyperbole that goes along with starting again. I think I'll keep it to myself until I see if it's day at a time..oh how cliche
