I wrote a few weeks ago that I was taking a break from the calorie counting and my BodyMedia armband tracking for the month of June.
June's not over yet, but I'm back to tracking!
In my previous blog, I said I wasn't stepping on the scale until July 1. Well, clearly, I made the leap a little early.
Last week, I started feeling ready to get my focus back. I started by simply recording what I ate. Nothing fancy, just jotting down what I ate and when.
Then, on Monday I knew I was actually ready to jump back into things. Since Wednesday has always been my "weigh in" day so on Wednesday I hopped on the scale to see where I was at.
I was pretty please to see that with a solid month of no calorie counting, my weight basically stayed the same! I went up 2/10 of a pound - nothing major. That was a great feeling - to know that I maintained for a solid month without really working "too hard" at it!
The break felt great - and I didn't fall off the wagon. I didn't go back to my old habits. No stops at fast food when I was hungry, pizzas when I didn't feel like cooking, or buying myself pieces of cake as a "treat". That is priceless!!
I've got my eye on the prize and I'm excited to buckle down and get rid of these last 20 pounds!
