Telling Tuesday - Once Again
I have to tell on myself - I have not done as good this week as I had hoped. I jumped back on last week with grand hopes of losing the couple of extra pounds that had sneaked back on. Somewhere along the way, I lost focus. And not only did I not lose those pounds, but another 1.5 jumped on as well. So here I am 3.5 pounds above the top of my maintenance range. So how did I let this happen? Very simple - I stopped counting points. While I have never been able to keep a written journal of what I eat, I have been vigilant since the beginning of the year in recording my points with my bracelet. Somewhere over the course of the last 2 months or so, I stopped wearing it. I don't remember even making a conscious decision to stop, it just happened. So as of today, I am back to tracking. It is the only way for me to be accountable for every bite I eat, and it obviously has worked for me.
As for the challenge over at Tales from the Scales, they have moved their posting day from Tuesday to Wednesday, though I will continue to post here on Tuesdays and just link there on Wednesday. Be sure to check them out for lots of inspiration, information, and even some free giveaways.
