Weigh-in Wednesday: NO!

Short post but had to give some quick updates:

Haven't posted a recent weigh-in for the last two weeks but that's because I'm taking a break from the scale. Focusing too much on the number has taken away from other things in life...

So I'm also stopping calorie counting. The every day/every hour/every minute thinking of food has, I think, actually done the opposite of what it's supposed to do and I find myself stressing over it. I've been doing it for over a year and half and rather than becoming routine, it's become a chore I don't look forward to.

Since following the BFL program, it's taught me portion control over counting calories so I'm gonna give it a try 100%. This week nutrition has been excellent and it helps that I recently joined a 20-day Eating Clean Challenge! That's right... clean eating, 100% for 6 days/week. It's nothing extreme and something I can see myself doing for the rest of my life so why not give it a try. I try to eat clean most of the time anyway but this will really help me focus on it more. Today is only day 3 but it's been perfect so far!

Join the Challenge here!

I'll be back later tonight or tomorrow to do a real post.

Hey! My name's Alyssa and I'm a brand new blogger. I like your blog a lot and I'm becoming a follower :)
You look great and I really hope that I can have the same success as you. 41.8 lbs. is a lot and you should be really proud of it!

yeah, calorie counting and scale obsession - I know all about it lol.

I've been off the Bugg for over two weeks now to test myself. I'm actually doing pretty darn well including the scale's confirmation...a slower weight loss than before, but not surprising really at this point.

I'm rooting for you on your challenge.

Clean eating seems really great! I want more info about it. Where will I find it?

I can understand that thinking of a food schedule and cal counting can cause some stress. Good luck on your 20 day challenge. i will make sure I follow your progress.

Good luck with the 20 Day Challenge!

I personally have to calorie count but from the sounds of it, it's driving you insane, and mental health is MORE important than physical (cause you can't have the physical without the mental). So shake things up a bit and try something else :)

I also want to stress that it isn't the TYPE of food that you're eating that's bad. And it's not even really that bad if you portion control, but if you cook it, it's even better (and cheaper) because you control exactly what goes into it. You can use less oil, you can use lean meat, and it tastes just as, if not, better! PLUS, you can always try making homemade ice cream. I've heard it's fun :)

Good luck!

The 20 day challenge looks awesome. To be honest it seems everything is telling me that we are what we eat. And I like to eat emotionally or out of boredom. Thanks for sharing the 20 day eat clean challenge. Since i missed the first i am going to do it on my own. Thanks!
