You start by logging all calories and consuming less than you burn. You can do it!

You're a brave soul, jm! It is VERY hard to log everything you are eating when you know you've gone way overboard. How did you even AFFORD to go to Chili's, Papa John'ws and McDonalds all in one day? Have you thought about starting by just cutting down on the quantity of food you eat? Even if you ate the very same things you are eating, but just ate half as much of them, you'd probably still lose weight (or at least not continue to gain). I KNOW it's hard. I would LOVE to have some of those Cinnamon Rolls with icing; but, I love MYSELF more, and want to be able to feel good about myself when I look in the mirror, or when I go out in public. I'm not to that point yet, but I'm headed in the right direction. (At least now, I don't speed down a different aisle at the grocery to avoid someone seeing me! Hey, it's a start.) Keep logging your food. Keep weighing. Keep TRYING. You'll get there. Just try to make small changes each day. Try having EIGHT beers with your Pringles instead of nine. Have the Papa John's pizza but ditch either the cinnamon knots or the garlic knots. Baby steps.

start each day new, as if your 'not so great' yesterday didn't happen.,log your morning coffee and list each item and amount of what you put into it. as time goes on you will double back and see what you have done in the past and try harder to not have as much next time or find a healthier alternative to things. This is NOT an easy journey, but it is one that you may have to restart each and every day until you find a pattern that works for you.

Jm..journaling builds your accountability and knowledge....if I don't make myself write down everything, then I tend to eat much more than my goals. Remember, its a life long journey, not a couple of week sprint....stay motivated and focused...

what I do is I log my food here and I have an actual journal that I have to physically write things in, I double log what I eat so I can't cheat myself. I also log how much water I drink each day, how much exercise i get and at the end of the day, I add up all of my calories and protein. and if I'm not sure if something is going to be healthy for me, I look up the calories and proteins listed for each item before I consume them, and if either I cannot find nutritional value or if it's too high I find an alternative for myself to eat instead of what I was originally thinking. in the settings here we set our RDI and I try to make sure I have at least 100 calories remaining for the day when I go to bed., if I have more than a 100 calories remaining for the day when I go to bed I've had a good day.
