Tracking and going really slow

Friday, May 10, 2013

I've decided to go slow really slow, I realize that being hungry just scares the tar out of me and it goes back to being a child and having a lot of hungry days. I learned back then to stock up on my eating because I did not know when I would eat again or I knew it would be a long while. My goal for the rest of this month is just to track my food. I am not giving myself a calorie limit, instead I am allowed to eat any and everything I want I just have to put it on my tracker.

All the years I've been trying to lose weight no matter what the program, the hardest part has always been being honest and consistent with tracking my food and my goal is just to making tracking a part of my life for the next 21 days of May and after that I can start to really look at things and make changes and of course I'm hoping that just the act of tracking will make me think twice about eating as much as I do, but no pressure and we'll see what happens

    Tracking is the best thing I do for myself... it keeps my honest, and helps me get my carb to protein ratios where I want them (which is 1:1)!

    That's how I started out. It's actually good to see your starting point as you continue to gain knowledge about what works for you. My weight was telling me that what I was eating wasn't taking me on the journey I wanted to be on, and seeing the difference between the amount I ate vs the amount I needed to eat helped to clarify the picture. From there I picked apart my existing menu, replaced or modified my menu, one step at a time. Throw exercise in the mix and you're well on your way.

    Keep up the good work. emoticon

    A nice rule to follow: If you don't bring it home, you won't eat it.
