Food/Activity Log Is UP!

First things first, today's number is back down to the number from 2 weeks ago. 161.8# Thanks to everyone who encouraged me to not let it get me down that I had "gained" .8#...I KNOW that fluctuations are not abnormal during diet change, but for some reason, I was focusing SO HARD on the number, when I know I shouldn't have been!

I know some people don't like to do a food diary...trust me, neither do I...but it really does help. I could cheat, and write something I know is not true, or I can be upfront with you (which is what I choose to do), and just tell you like it is...regardless of what I put into my mouth. My logging it is what makes me conscious of what is going into my mouth, and makes me question before eating (most times), as well as helps me see where it is that I am lacking in the nutritional chioces. Also helps me notice where I am skipping meals, which is my biggest issue. I am skipping less meals, but still not eating the BEST...but that is all about to get a lot better! That's another post, though, and for now, I am going to get this one done, and let you see! Just keep checking back for some super exciting stuff soon! SERIOUSLY!

Hang in there girl!!
One suggestion I would have, is to try and eat breakfast...it will rev up your metabolism and give you energy when you need it. Evening meals are consumed and then off to bed a few hours later...Breakfast is consumed and USED throughout the day. It helped me alot so I thought I would pass it along! :)

You're doing great! Don't let numbers discourage you. Pay attention to how you feel! I know how hard that is.
