Skipped tracking food..

Thursday, August 09, 2012

Yep. Nearly all day yesterday, I simply didn't track.
Call it a personal experiment.

I ate wayyyy too much, made myself feel sick for it (physically, not as in sick with guilt here) and didn't get to sleep til around 3am.

When I track my foods, I feel better, and make better choices throughout the day. I drink more water, and eat less junk. There's less mindless eating, and less eating at the computer.

My knee hurting was not helping either. Didn't walk because I had to move a bunch of bags and boxes (still in the process of moving my parents from one house to another... this is month 7 of it.. ), had to take mom to 2 appointments with her sulking like a 3 year old who got its toy taken away, and have another BIG appointment tomorrow with dad, to see when he goes into the hosp. for surgery. (He's getting a fistula for dialysis.)

So. Yea. No weigh in this week but I honestly don't mind. I know the weight is coming off because of my clothes, and til my knee feels better, there is no way I'm walking upstairs just to check the scale. It can wait.

Now I gotta go enter what I had for dinner, before I forget!

    I've found that I do better with tracking too.

    I've learned I have to track my food..When I started here af few years ago, I faithfully tracked for about 8 months and then with 2 vacations looming I quit tracking and then the holidays last winter I was heavier than I was when I started..I may have to track food for the rest of my life but then I would much rather be healthy and feel better than to be miserable with the added weight on me. I may track after the fact but I do track the food at least once a day. It keeps me honest.

    I hope your parents will be okay. As for the not tracking your food. I did that on Saturday. I tracked it after the fact. We had Chinese food. Just what I could find on the food tracker, dinner was over 2000 calories! I felt so guilty. I know how you feel. I think I am over it now. Push on my dear!

    I am a seasoned veteran in tracking food in my head after 4 1/2 years on 2 separate journeys of weight loss. It takes a long time to be accurate on calculating just in my head. Tracking is so essential, hop back on!
