The problem with this is I couldn't reset my weight, not that I knew how to at least, so here I was actually losing weight. But, since MFP thought my starting weight was about fifteen pounds lighter than it actually was, it wasn't registering my loss, not for ages.
I gave up on it. I was getting depressed about it. Screw you, MFP!
I gave myself the month of January to go without tracking. I haven't been going crazy with the eating, I have been aware of what I have been eating, but I haven't been tracking it. I also haven't weighed myself aside from one time, which was a mistake, so I will see how my month o' no tracking went on Saturday.
I am going to start tracking again next month so in honor of that I started a new MFP, TwinsMom411, if you want to find me on there.
Next month I am also going to
I'm not giving up carbs (please, I will make homemade biscuits if I have to, but mama's eating her carbs!). I'm not going Paleo (I don't dig on meat), or eating clean (I don't like the term because it implies other types of eating are dirty). I am eliminating added sugar. And believe me I have been doing my research and that shit is EVERYWHERE!
Of course, I am allowing myself a few exceptions. I have a fancy dinner dance for work on Valentine's Day, and while I would love to get the ingredient list on everything there, that's not going to happen. I won't eat the desserts, but the main courses I will need to eat
And Super Bowl Sunday is, yep, February 1st. Again, I'm not going to go crazy, but I can't exactly ask everyone what they used in their recipes. I will bring some of my own healthy options from home. Homemade guacamole and veggies yum!
That is my plan. If you have any tips or links you want to share, feel free. Obviously, I am a newbie at this, so I will flounder for a bit. But, I have high hopes between the support from Hubs and my awesome Internet friends I will kick sugar's butt!
