HAHA lOl you crack me up. Um, I’m super embarassed that when Darling Husband comes home and lives with me, he’ll see me eat the most random gross stuff

The other night it was pecans…and I dipped them into butter for a dip! I DON’T KNOW WHY. I have a feeling i’ll be too embarassed to do weird stuff like that when he comes home =]

I think it’s great this is a way to hold yourself accountable. I’m pretty good about my food logs. next thing you know it’ll be habit

Writing down what you eat definatly does help. I starting logging all the things I was eating. You would be very surprised. Almost every chain resteraunt has their nutrition facts online. The only one I go to around here that doesn’t are obviousl little hometown bars & Texas Roadhouse. Everywhere else has their facts online. Especially counting calories. Average to have 1200-1500 calories per day. Start writing down every little thing & you will see how fast they add up. Especially Drinks. I changed to Diet instead of regular soda. The only time i would have soda is when we had fast food; which regretably is pretty regularly. Lots of websites will also break down condiments. That is another great way to save some calories; get everything plain. Use Ketchup or BBQ instead of ranch or mayo.  & You must eat breakfast. Something full of protein & fiber. Somthing more filling at breakfast will keep you from splurging when lunch comes around Just some things I’ve found helpful!

I did this with my trainer.  When I’m accountable to him for what I eat I don’t cheat (plus I hate the frowney faces he puts in there on my bad days).  I’m just like you – when it’s for myself I give myself all kinds of leeway and cheat, but when I’m accountable to someone else, it’s different.

that is a very very good idea … I give myself TONS of leeway if it’s just me… I tried a personal trainer/dietician once … then I didn’t have enough money to keep that up … I will have to see if I can start doing this … now to find someone to send my emails to!

That is such a good idea, I am scared to try it.  Good luck!

I love the topic of this thread and your post…i love even more your name and avatar!!  I LOVE FOOD TOO…but I’m always on a diet!!  The food journal always helps me, and I like your idea about emailing someone…i guess you would think twice about the 2 slices of cake!!

I think that’s a cute idea! I do pretty good during the week and am working out a ton (only 7 weeks left)… Problem is my Fiance is 4+ hours away so when we see each other (right now only every other weekend) it so hard to be disciplined. And now I’m going to NYC in two weeks – the weekend before my second fitting! I think NYC and all I can think about is FOOD (and cocktails!) and shopping – all things I’m suppsoed to be avoiding. And get this – a couple weeks before the wedding his parents are coming from India and mom will be cooking awesome food (and hopefully teaching me). Despite all my hard work it seems like the odds are against me…

Making yourself accountable to someone else is great! Also, take inventory of everything you are eating at the end of each day. You’re already writing it down to  email it out, so take a look and realize how many cals are in each thing you eat. And beyond calories, take a look to see if you are getting more healthy foods than junk foods… make sure it is as balanced as possible, and take stock of your entire day! GOod luck!

LOL. What a fitting post for me to read as my Fiance ad I sit here passing a HUGH Cheetos bag around!  🙂  Hey, it’s Football Saturday! … I know, excuses, excuses.
