I'm on day 8. I should be on day 22 but started over 8 days ago. I know what went wrong. I had a really hard time giving up tracking and calorie counting. You see, I lost 80 pounds over 2 years with a slow, methodical approach to weight-loss until I hit my goal. It was done in a healthy way, no starvation. I managed to maintain for months but still tracking and making adjustments as needed. Not tracking was just too radical for my brain to wrap around 8 days ago. I wanted to track "just to see" what my calories were and I found I was making decisions based on what I was seeing in my macros and caloric intake. It's really hard to do this program while thinking about calories or macros. I know the books say that. I know this forum says it all over the place. Sometimes I need to find out for myself why a rule is put into place. I crashed and burned on the evening of the ninth day. This time, I deleted the tracking app from my phone and pushed my scale far under my bed so it's not in the bathroom where I can see it every morning. I also started my written journal over. As I compare each day to my first 8 days, I notice a little attitude difference, too. That's why I decided to post. I'll just put it here so I can come back to see my progress when I'm getting discouraged. This time, follow the instructions.
