Yesterday as I tucked into bed, I realized that I had completed a full week of my calorie counting (excluding Friday night's wine & cheese party and Monday night at Brooke & Freeland's house). My little notebook holds the contents of every morsel of food that I ate and the calorie content. I can already tell a difference in my size and I definitely feel better.
This food journal is good for me because it requires me to think about what I eat. I have to choose where I'm going to spend my calories and I have to measure out serving sizes so it's definitely made me aware of the excess that I typically eat during the day. Also, I think I savor my food differently now that it's limited instead of just snacking just because.
So, hopefully, maternity jeans will be boxed and in the basement soon!
