Thursday - Keeping at it!

Thursday, October 15, 2015

I am no longer tracking my food. This isn't because I just didn't want to do it anymore. It's a glitch that started last summer. For some reason, my computer slows to a crawl with SparkPeople! I can work around it for most things but NOT with tracking food. Just is too slow and too frustrating.

But SP has given me skills over the years. I have a real sense of at least calorie counts on most of what I eat so I pay attention in my head, trying to keep my calorie intake close to where I need them to be. It's working....so far. I'd go back to tracking in a flash if the speed returned.

So I'm simply reporting in here. I continue to pay attention to the 3 Ss (sweets, snacks, seconds) and that's helping me chip away. I've taken off 7 pounds this year (I had let those pounds come back on - gee, have you ever heard of THAT before?) and have renewed my target weight in my mind. 10 more pounds and I'll be there.

But I need to add one more S (so that's 4 Ss now). SWEAT. I continue to walk daily but I need to shake that up and do activities that make me SWEAT! I'm starting to focus on that now and believe that keeping in touch with these 4 Ss will take me where I want/need/plan to go!

Let's all finish the week STRONG!

    It's been awhile but I am glad to see that you are still here and am happy for your progress! I haven't put any of the weight back on but haven't lost any more either. I hate tracking my food. I just don't seem to be able to be consistent about it. However, I do watch everything carefully because I eat a rather restrictive diet. That makes it a lot easier but it does get pretty boring sometimes.

    Keep doing whatever it is you're doing. You are almost there!

    Well done; I think it's a 5-S approach, adding STRONG!

    I just got the app on my phone yesterday and I'm liking it so far. Much faster than on my computer for me. It's more streamlined, although I haven't tracked any fitness yet.

    If you have a art phone get the app for spark people. That way u always have a way to track everything and in the end it is easier to hold yourself accountable. Atleast it has worked for me! Give it a shot! Good luck
