Well that explains it

The 5% Challenge activity for the last 2 weeks has been tracking our food. I really didnt want to do that & after doing it, I can see why I resisted & why the scale hasnt moved favorably emoticon

For 3 of the last 7 days, my total calories have been 500 over each day!! No wonder I cant lose weight!! Due to the stress of my daughters upcoming wedding & move, Im not necessarily stress eating. Im just so overwhelmed that I dont want to make good decisions like choosing healthy snacks or saying NO to 2nd helpings. Notice I didnt say CANT, but " I dont want to". I realize the difference, it just doesnt seem to help.

All I can do is hang on to the fact that this will be over in just a couple of weeks. The BIG DAY is Nov 10th. Hopefully after that, I can settle down & get back on track.

On a good note, I have been keeping up with my yoga practice & walking 3-4 times a week. Now if I can just do better at eating more freggies & saying NO to the junk food!!

Have a blessed weekend!

    I totally agree! I hate tracking, but it sure does open my eyes to what I am really eating and the percentages of carbs-fat-protein. Hang in there! I know weddings are a delight, but they are stressful too. I am sure it will be a great day!

    I resisted tracking for many years. "I know what I ate, I know what to eat." Huh. I grudgingly did it when I got serious on Spark and how bout that! Tracking helped me to see my habits and where I could make healthy swaps, smaller portions instead of restricting foods and things started clicking.

    Good for you becoming self aware! That is a huge step!

    Keeping a log and being HONEST with it is critical to me. I dont move on any goals I dont write, it seems. Including water consumption.

    You can. And you will. And you might even pick a day - say a week after the wedding - to begin concentrating on All Things Good for You.

    It always helps to see where we need a little extra help!!! I can stay in my calories and make good food choices I just hate working out lol. Have A great day, and enjoy the wedding!!!
