Food tracking.

Sunday, April 21, 2013

After having a good think I am fairly sure my recent set back was exacerbated by the lack of tracking. I think SW was a little bit of a mistake as it took me off my stride. I think it is good to try new things but I think SW just isn't for me. I know it has helped other people but for me it just didn't want to do do the biz.

So back to calorie counting and tracking. I think it's the only thing which really works for me. And I feel so much better now I am tracking. It makes me feel more in control.

Yesterday snt a bad day considering it involved pink wine. I am addicted to Linda Mcartney fish free prawns. They are just over a 100 cals a bag and so filling. I don't think they taste of much but are good when seasoned with chilli and lime juice. They are ridiculously expensive so when Tesco had them in at half price I bought three bags.

It's been a busy dy today. Swimming with the boys.
Though I don't do much swimming. I am in charge of throwing the balls..

    I didn't find that SW worked for me either. Being veggie I just took it as a green light to stuff my face with as much veg as I could, so, not surprisingly, I lost no weight. Being accountable and actually 'seeing' what I'm putting into my mouth is so much more effective, so back to the tracking as well for me.

    Hope you're doing well now.

    Hope you had a good day. About SW I don't know how it works but for many people it does! If its not good for your 'head space' then calorie counting is better for many I know.

    Keep positive!

    I love taking my children swimming too, I throw swim sticks for them to dive for too but do some swimming against them now, they always win but then I've paid for their lessons so they should be able to swim better than me! emoticon
    Have a good week emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Did you try the Dr. F diet? I have been a yoyo but recently I changed my life style and I eat oatmeal for breakfast with blueberries, lunch is chicken or fish, size of a deck of cards, and a bagel and banana for supper, jello, carrots, salads, for snacks. It takes two weeks for your stomach to start to shrink. It has worked for me but not all diets work for everyone. I am one of the leaders of Tips for Writing, Incredible health and weight loss and my other leader lost over 50 lbs. with the Dr. Foreman diet.
