I Vow to Put EVERYTHING I eat in my nutrition tracker!

Wednesday, April 15, 2009

I need to lose weight...I am exercising at least 300 minutes each week and need to find out what I am doing wrong. I am going to track my eating and I mean everything I put in my mouth on my food journal online and then take copies of it to my doctor and find out where I need help. My thyroid is probably still the problem, but I am going to have to prove it.

I love the support of sparks and wouldn't be able to make this journey without all the support and friends I have made on here.

Things I love:

1. I love Zumba
2. I love my children and family
3. I love Sparks
4. I love that I am trying new things..soon to be P90X
5. I love that I can exercise for 1 or 2 hours and that I enjoy it.
6. I love to see the scale move down.

    Hey Girl.. just holding you accountable... you are NOT tracking!

    I am peeking :-)

    I know when I DO track (which is hard because it take commitment) I do eat so much better and eat less calories.

    WHEN I track, I lose weight.

    WHEN you track, I bet you will lose weight too.

    Make sure you are SURE about your quantities...many times we underestimate. Make sure you are eating in your correct range so your body is not storing because your calories are too low. A random low day is fine but overall, we gotta eat and exercise to lose weight.

    You can do it! TRACK that food. It's a great plan. I need to do it too!!!

    I tend to forget to track some things sometimes too! It is easy to forget the BLT's-- bites licks and tastes-- but they add up! You go girl, keep that focus.

    I really need to do that, too. I'm the same way -- I've been exercising like crazy but not seeing a whole lot of love on the scale. But what a great accomplishment that you can exercise for so long! Just shows you're in great shape, no matter what the dumb scale says. I'll be interested to hear how you like the P90X -- I've heard such great things about it. Keep going!

    Hey Lori,

    Way to go on starting to record your food journal. I am starting to retrack mine also. I do this at dailyplate. I track my fitness here, and may start tracking the food here too. I tried to track my food here once and had an issue that discouraged me/ It was a long time ago, so I am not sure what it was, probably few mainstream foods, or restaurant foods...can't remember.

    Anyway thanks for keeping me and everyone else encouraged.

    I think it's a good idea to track what you are eating. With the exercising you are doing you should be showing some kind of improvement every week. Another thing you might what to consider if you haven't already is your body gets used to the same muscle movements if you make a habit of doing the same things often. It is good for your body to be challenged in new ways to increase your weight loss. If the problem is medical I hope you and your doctor can find the solution quickly so you can make the progress you are looking for.

    If you are serious about wanting to get together to go for a walk or a (short, because I doubt I could take much) run I would enjoy that. Just let me know what times are good for you and we can work something out I'm sure.

    Congratulations on your progress so far! Your doing great.
