Day 11 of tracking food. Having the log helps me confront the impulse to eat sometimes when I am not hungry and am just feeling empty. I've had a lot of that recently. Part of my isolation is my own fault because sometimes opening up to an individual proves more painful/ unproductive than staying silent. Sometimes well intentioned friends or family members can be sources of the worst/ most draining counsel. I've found that I have trouble asserting myself in efforts to avoid being lectured about a course of action I believe is unwise and am unwilling to pursue. I never thought of myself as being a people pleaser, but I guess I have a streak of that in me that comes out as cowardice instead of firmly and politely saying I understand what the other person is trying to say and just do not agree that I should heed their direction, and unless they have some other previously unspoken argument to share for my consideration that I am not interested in hearing more about what I "should" be doing. Alas, I may end up with abundant opportunities to practice this skill before my current trial is over with. Honestly right now I basically wish I could close my eyes and wake up to it being next week, or better yet learning that these last two and a half weeks have just been a very vivid bad dream. I know that is not the best attitude, but that is where I am at for now. Indeed sufficient for each day is its own troubles.

So I've been tracking my food for 4 days now. I'm not measuring and for some foods I am approximating, but this is new for me to actually maintain something like this for this long. It's a LOT easier to track when I am not snacking compulsively. I used to eat a lot and often and now I eat about 3 or 4 times a day with (I believe) moderate amounts of food. Too bad my scale is broken, now I am actually excited about what it might say because I am maintaining a calorie deficit. :) Though serves me right for assuming I'd be able to find a food before I threw the wrapper away. I can't believe how difficult it was to find the sandwich I ate for dinner (I bought a sandwich from work-aka Target- and thought I'd just add it on here when I got home). I gave up and found what I thought was the next closest thing. Better luck next time. I'm wary of adding apps to my phone because I don't want to overload it and sap the battery. Plus my phone camera sucks, so I doubt it would be able to scan anything. I have a Target app on my phone to help save money when I buy stuff from work, but the barcode reading function doesn't work on my phone. :( Oh well. People are noticing me looking different and I don't think I've really lost much weight, so all in all I am feeling good about the direction I seem to be headed in.
