First- no more scale. Really and honestly, I don't care what I weigh as long as I am healthy and my cloths fit. If I set a goal of a certain number, I may not get there in the best way, or I really get mad at myself for not reaching the number. This, of course, lead to some emotional eating and well....you know the cycle. That said, I do need to track my progress in some way...
Second-measurments twice a
Third, and final goal-Track my eating. I'm simply going to track everything that passes my lips. I will have a plan to follow. Not calories, but how many fruits, veggies, protiens and starches I eat and try not to eat any extras. For each month I successfully follow the plan, no matter what the numbers look like on the scale or measuring tape, I will get a reward.
I really want to focus on integrating good habits. Any diet that works in the long term requires change. It can't just be a diet, but has to be a lifestyle change for healthy eating. You can lose weight doing almost anything-calories in, calories out-but the important thing to me is to eat healthy, act healthy, become healthy. If the numbers move too, great! If they don't, I am at least trying to become a better me.
