I started logging my food intake in March, having never previously counted calories, as I wanted to see if I could lose a few stubborn pounds to reach my goal weight of 122 lbs (I'm female, 5ft 4inch and active through running, rebounding and doing isometric exercises).
I'm now 120 lbs and have lost 7lbs, since 10th March. I'm looking to maintain at this weight and am only weighing myself twice a week (Wednesday and Saturday's).
From logging my calories, I've learned that snacking was a problem as I was often consuming more calories snacking than I was for my main meals.
I did a little experiment from Wednesday until this morning where I took a break from logging my intake, just to see how I was doing and I lost a pound from my weigh in on Wednesday.
So, my question is to those who have successfully maintained their weight: do you continue to log your intake daily or have you just learned over time, what you can/can't eat etc?
I've never previously counted calories because I felt worried about falling into a trap of becoming consumed and obsessed by counting everything and am interested to see how others manage their weight.
