Coaches reinforce tracking food as the primary success in weight loss, even more than exercise (beyond 10 minutes of cardio daily).

My husband got a FitBit and just loves it. He bikes twice a week and goes to the gym three times a week. After burning an extra 462 calories the other day, he said, "I get to eat 462 more calories today"!

What's wrong with that statement? (I think he was being funny. emoticon )

I'm giving myself an imaginative pat on my back. Twice this week I wasn't able to track food, and I ate out. When I finally caught up, fully expecting to have gone over (although I made smart choices), I fell within my range. That is this week's motivator (and showed up on my scale).

How are you doing achieving your goals? Let's share the things that work (and don't).

Here's an article by Coach Nicole that says just that:

Stop Emotional Eating Before It Starts
15 Ways to Turn Off Your Emotions without Turning to Food

articles.asp?id=1396


Excerpt:

Emotional eaters know that it's easier to stuff down our feelings with each bite. We know that the fleeting "high" we get from food blocks the pain or discomfort of dealing we might be feeling, even if only temporarily. We also know better; in the long run, we still feel bad and we know that we shouldn't eat for purely emotional reasons. But that knowledge isn't enough to stop what feels like an addiction to food and eating. So where do you start if you want to stop eating emotionally?

My tip is to not eat when you're upset! Write about what's on your mind instead, either in a journal or a blog. emoticon

Mine has been the SparkPeople meal planner, where Spark designs my meals according to my goals. Having the portions in writing kept me on track, AND I felt so satisfied after each meal. Substitutions are easily made, and I can now guesstimate portions when I'm not on the computer.
