Today marks day 1 of me getting back on the MyFitnessPal wagon. I’ve always had success with calorie counting in the the past as long as I’ve stuck with it. I’ve come to the point where I am definitely not losing weight with exercise as I should be, and they say diet is 80% of weight loss, so today’s the day I set that straight.
I’m choosing MyFitnessPal because I’ve looked in to some of the more restrictive diets, and I don’t believe that I need that drastic a change at this point. Last time I did MyFitnessPal, which was about 4-5 months ago, I lost 13lbs fairly quickly and that was without exercise. Given that I’m working out 4x a week at Greco, I think that if I get back to tracking my calories and ensuring that I’m not going over, I can have that kind of success again.
The most obvious secret to success for any diet is being able to stick to the plan. If I can follow through, I know it will be successful because it has been before. Lately, sticking to the plan has been the challenge, but I think I need to be stricter with myself and my thinking. Just say no, and mean NO! That is always the hard part.
