We don't always follow a straight, smooth line when we work towards our health goals. It's ok when it curves here and there and presents bumps and obstacles. One thing for sure; I will not give up on my goal to be healthy and at a weight that is right for my body.
For me, my health is my number one focus; the weight loss is an indicator I'm eating right for my body at this time. The weight loss IS a motivator for sure, but it is not my main focus...it is mainly a sign I'm moving towards optimal health.
Tracking your food and analyzing the results are steps you can take to ensure you're moving towards a healthier lifestyle that will naturally encourage your body to drop the extra pounds.
