Keeping track

Wednesday, July 17, 2013

Surprise! I do better when I keep track of what I eat than when I say, "Oh, I'm ok today."

Things that don't work: Japanese and Chinese food. Anything salty. Too much of anything. Not drinking enough water.

Every time I think about opening my mouth and putting in food, I need to review the above.

    My weight creeps back fast when I don't track!

    If I don't track, my portions distort and I gain. I just can't keep a whole day's worth of food in my brain competently enough to know how many calories I've consumed.

    There's salt hiding in stuff that isn't salty too!

    It works for me too. In fact, when I don't track, it's a sign that I'm heading towards a binge. I don't want to track binges so I start getting slack on the tracking. Tracking is part of what makes my program work. emoticon

    Oh yes . . . tracking can be a real eye opener. And that's honestly a good thing.

    HUGS and smiles. Hope you're staying cool.

    How true! I hear you. I do the same thing - and at times actually forgot some of the things I eat. Now I carry a silly little notebook with me to jot it all down in. I am too impatient to use the apps for phones - never can find what I am looking for. So, old school for me, pen and paper. Write it down BEFORE it goes in my mouth!!!
    We can do this!!!!!
