Losing motivation

Wednesday, February 17, 2016

I am losing my motivation to track my food. It's tedious, it's annoying, it's a hard truth to look at the realities of my eating. I do ok during the week with the structure of work, but when the weekend comes, I often eat out a lot, and that makes for pain in the bum tracking. It's not about the meal, it's about the butter on the roll, or the salad dressing, or the broccoli, whatever, it just isn't simple or easy. I get that I need to work at this, and that what I have done (or haven't done - tracking in this case) doesn't work. I know I need to change my habits, but this is one I am really struggling with. I am still here, still trying, and still tracking accurately for the most part. That is what I can promise myself for right now: To do my best.

    Start rewarding yourself for tracking your food on a daily basis! If you are successful for the week---treat yourself to a manicure or something else you wish!

    I am only just back to SP after 6 months away and weight gain...:-( I too, am getting cheesed off tracking every day .....but I KNOW and I KNOW and I KNOW that by doing it, I take back control of how much, when, and why.....hang in there sweetie....it really is worth it to track it......it is a decision to want healthy, slim and size (whatever feels right for you) 10 more than the irritation of tracking...I want back into my skinny clothes and to feel slim more the pain of logging......Hang in there sweetie..
