Why Am I Not Logging?!

You would think that after 3 years, I would have this logging thing down. The scale has been good to me, the tape measure and the the 5K times even better. I have a lot of excuses for not logging.

- EVERYTHING that I eat does not have a bar code for the MFP scanner.
- I have been doing this for years, I have it down!
- Too many new foods with travel and on-the-run meals.
- It's a pain in the iPhone.
- Other people gave up and succeeded.
- My spouse loves me no matter what I weigh.
- The dog doesn't growl at me unless I lick my own dish.
- Counting calories sucks the joy out of eating!
- I run 40 or 50 miles a week.
- My health is good - no make that great!
- I am at my goal weight - well close.
- I paid my dues.
- Logging is for weak people.
- I like points better.
- My lifestyle changes will keep me on the path.
- I can eyeball the proper portion size from across the room.
- I cheated when I was logging.
- The economy sucks.
- They had cake and I ate it.
- I never took a cheat day (more like a few years)
- Counting is inaccurate.
- I don't eat fast food.
- I wrote a book about all this!

Honestly, after a few weeks, it's already not working. I'll be back.

Thanks for the votes and comments.

Yep, same for me. If I don't log, I gain weight. Period.

I noticed when I stopped logging, I gained back a considerable amount because I figured, I'm training for a marathon and burning through oodles of calories, I'll be fine. Well, I wasn't and then I paid for it this winter. :P

stupid logging! ;) ok, it DOES work. must you be right ALL the time? in case everyone hasn't gotten it by now... it makes you understand what you are putting down the pie hole. Just get over it and DO IT!

Needed this. I've been away for about two weeks and need to get back into logging (and losing). BTW, I'm two chapters into the book and am loving it.

Yep, counting is inaccurate. All those labels with their funny symbols don't mean a thing.
