I did it. And it was painful to face - Kept a food diary, and included the bad stuff

Wednesday, February 21, 2018

Today I logged everything I ate. Had a huge battle with myself. Along with the excellent food choices I made, I ate 1.5 cups of dried chickpeas (@700 calories). I could barely make myself record it. Oh? Does that mean I didn't eat it? Hmmm? Cuz I ate every single little one of them, and they're lining up along my body parts, finding a new home, while I fool myself. What was interesting was how long it took me to decide to record them anyway. It was a strange battle with myself. Again, with the trouble facing my behaviour honestly. I just wanted to start again tomorrow at Day 1, skipping past the record of the bad choice.
All I can do is try again tomorrow, and commit to logging both the good and the bad. Until the good wins out. The good choices are their own reward!!!
Just keep trying.

    Keeping track of my food log honestly is the most important thing for me. I log things as I go and it really hhas helped me stay on track. Sometimes it is really ugly like when I eat chocolate and sunflower seeds and add 800 calories of what I call nothing food.

    The most important thing to know when starting out, is where you ARE now. It is amazing how many little ways you can find to reduce the calories without even feeling it.

    Excellent advice-we can only handle one day at a time. Every single day gives us a fresh start and another chance. to get it right and HOPEFULLY we will start to get it right more often than not over time.

    If we aren't honest with ourselves, how can we be honest with others. Proud of you for having the honesty to record what you ate.

    When you exclude a food, or cheat, you are only cheating yourself.
