Since the scale has been going slow (very slow)... I'm pretty sure I have been slacking on my food tracking and sneaking in some calories! I jumped on My Fitness Pal's community posts to see what advice people have given to others regarding the scale slowing down and saw this awesome graphic! That is how I determined that I have not been honest with myself. For example, sometimes at dinner I'll "assume" the grilled chicken is around 3-4 oz and log that, when in reality the chicken is 5-6 oz (which is roughly a 100 calorie difference).
Looking at this graphic, when I got to the "Have you been logging accurately..." question, I struggled to answer this honestly. I don't track all my iced coffee's and I don't weigh my foods anymore, I have been slacking. So my answer was "no". I have a food scale and I try to use it most meals but I'll admit, I will go a couple days without touching it!
Starting today, I'm going to go back to religiously weighing and measuring my food so I can be exact with my calorie consumption and see how to goes by Friday. On a side note, I feel amazing! Even though the scale isn't moving lately, I feel great and that is all that matters! My clothes are feeling loose and I have had my water retention under control for a couple weeks now, Epsom salt baths are my new go-to for this!
