S/C/G: 375.6/low 160s maintaining

Height: 6'


I have a little trouble with this. I will finish eating, and then start to worry about having eaten too much. Even though I've measured everything, even though I've got my day's food all planned out in advance, even though I know better, I often start second-guessing myself. Like, I don't know, I somehow forgot that I accidentally ate an entire pie, or something.

This is where my food journalling really, really, REALLY helps. I flip open FitDay, and scroll through my list, and mentally check off everything I've eaten, and everything I've yet to eat. It's written down right there! I am slightly obsessive about it, haven't missed a day of journalling in two years now. I never, ever forget to do that. If I ate an entire pie, even though it would kill me, I would write it down. So if there's no pie on that list, I haven't eaten a pie, and I just need to chill out and stick to plan and it'll all be fine.
Began 14 August 2008
Initial goal of 175 reached 5 July 2010

Maintaining 160-165 since November 2010
