So here’s the deal. I realized that I’d been living on soda and chips for years (high-stress dot-com job’ll do it to you every time) and I thought it had become a compulsion to eat them as opposed to a need.
So I decided to stop eating chips and soda (and other snacks)(and incidentally quit the high-stress job) and only eat at mealtimes. I could eat anything I wanted that wasn’t junk (or fast food)(same thing, I guess) as long as it was at mealtimes. The goal wasn’t really weight loss as much as behavior modification. I wanted to choose what I ate, not some compulsion.
So I went and weighed myself at some point when Mrs Chance observed my change in habits. I weighed 275! I hadn’t really been thinking about it before then but now I am.
Over the last month that I’ve altered my eating habits I’m down to 260. I enter my weight in Excel every morning (weighing myself before showering) and have a little graph and everything.
But now that this has turned into a weight-loss routine I find myself less-than-confident that I know what I’m doing. There are about 10 ka-billion different diets out there and I’m not really following any of them.
But am I going about this in the most efficient manner? Is there some advice I could be following?
I’d appreciate some help here…
