Back to Lose It!

In every weight loss book, every diet method, every everything I read about losing weight, they all say the same thing:

Track what you’re eating.

Count calories, count points, count net carbs, count food exchanges but count something.

There’s a reason for it, you know…  Its because those mindless snacks don’t register.  The two chocolates I ate?   There’s no calories listed on the packaging  – they’re individually wrapped.  But they were oh so good… and promptly forgotten within minutes of eating them.

On a side note, you have to wonder… how much enjoyment does one get out of something that’s forgotten within minutes of eating it?

So yeah.  Back to counting.  Tracking.  Being honest with what I eat/drink/consume.  Only then, when I see it, will I really see it.

Back to tracking my food intake.   And I’ll be using Lose It! to do so.  My brother in law introduced me to it last year… This year I’ll actually make it work :p

What do you use to track your food consumption?

    I’m really good at tracking my movements – those machines measure miles and I dutifully write them in my little red book. But…try as I might, I haven’t been able to figure out how to track my eating. It works for about 3 days, and then I’m off the wagon. But you’re right, its the one thing that I need to solve in this weightloss-health equation. What I try to do, in my head at least, and sometimes on my new blog, is to note the things I’ve done well, and the things that I probably shouldn’t have done – like too much dark chocolate last night. Because I don’t follow recipes, just ideas, tracking calories is a nightmare for me.

      You know – I find Lose It! helps… as does a tiny notebook 🙂

      I don’t do any cooking in my house… well, rarely, so I have to ask for a rundown on what’s in dinner or breakfast so I can track it. :p

      You don’t need a recipe – just need to know how much you put in the whole dish and then divide it into however many servings there is 🙂
