Really Really Track Your Food To Get Back On Track



On the last day of November, 2010, I entered a secret in this category about the importance of tracking when you're off track. I've learned even more how true it is. I've spent several weeks of maniacal eating, each day telling myself that I'd get it together the next. Finally, this a.m., I hit the nutrition tracker. I've eaten the right things; the idea of doing otherwise doesn't even occur to me now. Half a day and I know I'm back in the saddle.

  • I started 2/21 and was very consistent a month. I didn't really see progress and so have mostly not done anything since except make promises and know I should do. It's hard when my life is full of so many shoulds. I like your comment and don't know if I need to get back on track or just on track. At least for today I am drinking tea with some grapefruit juice and not pigging out and it's 10:27. Of course I need breakfast but I'm not hungry but should be. Obviously I'm not in sinc with myself and live an emotionally controlled life or existence. - by CEREIC1
