I'm trying to get some opinions on the "all or nothing" approach to MFP. I have tried to do more of a balanced approach but the demon inside of me says, "no way pal." This isn't quite a hindrance to my weightloss, I actually prefer it, but maintaining (I'm saying that loosely when I get there) is crazy hard to transition to.
I'm a program manager by trade and my MFP revolves around logging everything to the T. I even log my Extra wintergreen gum, gosh dang it! But has anyone flourished with the all or nothing approach? Like I said, I'm not as worried about starting (i'm day 4 yay!) but maintaining is always a troublesome approach.
I'm torn. I love logging and it puts a fire under me to keep on MFP all day to reach my goals. My personality is geared like this. I love structure! But when I have bad days it is a tough pill to swallow.
Is any of this making sense? I feel like I'm babbling but would like some input if anyone has any. I guess I can proceed forward like this until I make maintenance, when that time comes. Who knows? Anyone in the same boat? Lemme know!
