2011 is my year

Monday, February 14, 2011

Hmmmmm, well I haven't blogged in over 2 years. So here goes.

I am back on this journey. This journey is going to be long and this journey is not going to be easy.

I am doing a biggest loser competition on base and I am have lost 6 lbs on it so far. I have been sick this last week and have been tracking my food.

So in the last week of the biggest loser I did not lose any weight but on the positive I did not gain any. I did gain my half and inch of height back that I thought was funny that I lost last weigh in.

Now on the be real.

I am not sure if I am accurately tracking my food, and I don't know which way to go with the calories, do I go off of the machine or do I go off of spark people. Sometimes I change it up. That is frustrating to me because it is so different. I want to track what I have been burning.

I might be cheating myself a bit on the calories and it is only cheating me no one else. So why does the number on spark really matter.

I think that I need to get into the counselor again for a check up and make sure that I am going in the right direction for me.

    I always use my machine because I do things differently then just walking on treadmill like spark would think. I jog and walk and back and forth. Spark was never accurate for me so I manually enter mine.

    It is really tough when the numbers say different things. What I think it's important to remember is that even by brand, calories and other nutritional information can vary greatly.

    It might help to just pick one calorie tracking system and stick with it. It might not be the most accurate, but it's consistency that's the key.

    As to the cheating, I totally feel that. My weight loss has been stalled for awhile and I blame my snacking. A finger of peanut butter here, a cracker or two there really adds up. Cut out those snacks and I guarantee you'll find more success. It's doing it that's the hard part.

    However you find it, keep ahold of that motivation. You were right, it is going to be long and it is going to be tough, but so worth it in the end :)
