I loathe logging

Monday, April 24, 2017

I really, really do. It's just too damn tedious and I'm simply too busy to log in every single time I eat something. I don't find the mobile app helpful, and since I make a lot of my own meals from scratch, that means having to do the stupid recipe calculator which is BEYOND tedious.

Wah. Welcome to grumpy Monday.

All that being said, holy mackerel I NEED to change my direction here because I've gained back too much weight. Having moved into a new house, there are mirrors mirrors everywhere, and I've seen more of myself in the past week than I care to have, and it's not looking good. At all. My devil-may-care attitude has caught up to me, and added to the fact I ate bread, pasta, and pizza in the past week, my body is in major pain. emoticon

So this week's plan is to get the eating back on track, log stoooopid calories, and get out at least twice in the morning to walk to dog. I feel like crap, I look like crap, and it's time to just do what I know I need to. The End.

    Right there with you babe. I hate tracking but have resolved to the fact that I must do it everyday in order to lose weight. It sucks.

    I'm in maintenance and still find logging useful. It keeps me honest with myself and if my weight starts to creep up I can see exactly where the problems are. To quote Oprah, "I love bread". I try to eat any bread carbs early in the day so I get my fix and it doesn't hurt my weight. If I eat it at night it seems to be worse for me. I love Dave's Killer 21 Grain Bread with a little peanut butter. That is my go to breakfast along with a cup of coffee or tea.
    I agree it is tedious to log, but I know I do much better by making the time to do it!
    I wish you much success and that you can truly enjoy you new home, all those mirrors and most of all enjoy your journey!

    I log my food at MFP, because it is much easier then the one here, and now because all my recipes are there. Plus you can do meals on things you eat commonly. It also helps with meal planning, I am on a 1040 day streak of logging there!

    Tracking your food sucks but it works for weight loss. Can you track on a computer? That's much easier.
