My Weightloss Ticker

Tuesday, May 6, 2008

well... i'm on my way

for two weeks, i've only done one simple thing...

I've tracked my food!

I know it sounds silly to those of you out there searching for what to do about your massive amount of weight to lose. I feel your pain. Literal pain, believe me. I'll get to my thoughts on that later on in another journal post.

For now, you should know that Fit Day has helped me so much. It's an online tracking system for weightloss, activity/movement, and food journal. It tallys up calories, fat grams, vitamin intake, carbs, the works! It shows you the percentage of your food that goes to fat, protein and carbs in a handy pie chart. Yum. Pie.

It has honestly helped me to eat less... because the more I see those numbers rising, the sicker I feel about the food I'm swallowing! I do not want to develop some unhealty hatred toward food, for it is not the cause of my state... its my heart. My inner person. I have done this to myself and I'm ready to change.

So, be on the look out for change - no pictures just yet.
Watch my tickers and postings.

I will lose this burden. This painful, disgusting burden.

It's really interesting when you start tracking your food. You just don't realise how much you are eating until you do it.

Great job on taking the first step. You are on your way and can do it if you just take it one step at a time. I'll be stopping by to offer encouragement and will keep you in my prayers. You will get there (and so will I, eventually)!

When I started my journey on October 23rd of 2007 I had 243lbs to lose. I am down 106 as of last night and I am here to tell you that you can TOTALLY do this! You are incredible for just taking the first step!
