I've tried an experiment for the last few days. I decided to stop doing nutrition tracking to see what happened. Unfortunately, I reverted right back to terrible eating habits. I've been eating way too much, and eating sweets again. I seem to have a mindset that if I don't write it down, the calories don't count :) I've gained a little weight. This is depressing. I've also noticed I tend to eat until my stomach hurts, then eat more to try to feel better. That's absurd and is one of the reasons I was so overweight.
So I've decided to restart diet stage 3. And resume tracking. I need to permanently change how I think about eating, and I'm not there yet. I also need to find more ways to exercise this week. My kids are out of school on break and I don't have my usual time to work out.
On the up side, I've lost almost 5 pounds in September. Only 7 pounds to go until I'm officially "normal weight" (BMI under 25). 17 pounds to go to my ultimate goal.
