I think I am going to take a break from myfitnesspal.
I still need to write down what I eat for my trainer, in a notebook, I am very familiar with calorie contents by now, and my meals are very routine, so I am definitely not giving up on tracking food intake.
I really give myfitnesspal a lot of credit as a very powerful tool in my weight loss, because of its 24-7 availability via my phone. But after 7 months I think it may not be necessary anymore, and it is somewhat tedious.
Maybe I will miss it and go back to it.
Or maybe I will find I do still need it.
Time will tell.

- Six years ago I decided (age) 42 would be my magic number. I stepped on the scale for the first time in a LONG time. It was a BIG number, it was a SCARY number, but mostly I knew I had to own that number. I lost 40 pounds, leaving the obese category behind. In 2014 I committed myself to working out HARD and a low sugar diet, losing more weight and gaining nice definition. Then life happened, and I lost momentum, gaining some weight back. My goals now are different, and include completing my first ever marathon at age 48. GULP! You can read about the next part of my journey here.
