I’m looking for success stories of people who stopped logging and maintained their goal weight.
That could be a heretical question bc so many people do keep logging forever. I mean, obv this community is built around a really great logging app. Now I’m very glad that forever logging works for you if you do that. Seriously, it’s amazing fortitude and dedication.
But I’m a busy dad with a big family. And honestly, I don’t like how logging messes with meal times. I’ve just today finished losing 13kg (29lbs) over 4 months. I did it by logging everything (and exercise). The logging keeps me glued to my phone before, during, and after meals. The fam is half done eating by the time I’ve weighed everything and sat down. If we’re eating a light lunch or supper from a shared pick plate, the whole meal is spent tallying carrots, olives, salami, cheese eaten etc. Any dessert or novel drink and I’m back at the scale.
I don’t want to live like this forever. I gained my weight very slowly over years. I naturally like healthy food, and work/eat from home. My plan is to weigh in daily, guesstimate macros from space on the plate, and only use MFP occasionally if I slide out of my goal range.
But I’m looking for success stories of conscious uncoupling from logging. How did you do it?
