Food Tracker

Thursday, April 08, 2010

When I started on SP I used the food tracker religiously for the first year. I realized that it was making me think about what I was eating and how it would affect my calorie count. I got to the point where I knew what I had to eat, and my food was the same all the time so a few months ago I stopped using it. Since that time I have not lost any weight and I am hungry all the time. I have also been drinking my 8 glasses of water so I know it isn't thirst. So today I am returning to using the food tracker to see what is going on. I have realized it is an important step in my weight loss. We'll see what happens. Hopefully it will kick up my weight loss.

    You might be eating too little without even knowing! Your mind is probably playing mind games telling you to eat less just incase (after all you don't want to over eat right)

    I started to feel overwhelmed by the food tracker and how many times a day I had to come on and enter one thing after the other, it just started to annoy me to be honest. This might help you, I decided (and made it one of my APRIL goals) to only log my meals late at night after I've finished having all my meals, or if after a certain meal I had to use my computer or just happened to be using it, I would log meal by meal, AFTER I've finished!

    The only difference is you don't stress as much if you haven't planned your meal! Plus you get to see if you can really make it on your own with the feedback you get after u log in all your meals!

    Good Luck

    I think the food tracker is a very important aspect of our journey. Try it out again and see if you get results.
