***link***plan to stop tracking food

Saturday, June 13, 2015

From Armi Legg at Evidence mag this is a 9 step process to ease into not tracking food anymore. Since I've been tracking for a couple of months (off and on, mostly on) I think I may try this once I get to my mid-weight in my range, I'm still a few pounds away from that, but this looks like a sensible way to ease off the tracking.

    I think that this is the ultimate goal for all of us (I just can't imagine it right now myself). I'm not there by any means & would be flailing about like a fish out of water without my tools to keep me on-track in my life.

    Thank you for your response to my recent blog post (much appreciated).

    I love your background and other photos.. it's where my life wants to be.

    This is great! I'd hate to think I have to track forever. I have gained back my weight, but tracking didn't prevent that. Weighing at least once a week did. I had no gauge. Now, it's get a routine, both exercise and eating, that will work. So, I'm working on that.

    I don't track every day, but I try for most days. I'll keep this for reference. Will look forward to hearing how it goes for you.

    I'm afraid to stop tracking. The one time I tried, I gained weight. More power to you!!! I'll be checking in on you from time to time to see how you are doing. I know emoticon

    Thanks. Been tracking for 5 years now. Its the only way I have been able to not only lose weight but maintain it. It is however paintstaking at times. Its extremely difficult not to fall into bad habits. Being able to track food, gives me a snapshot on how far off the beaten track i can get.
    Great article though. Lots of good things I have read, or would like to know.
