Ok major update...
I did something very wrong. I think Suz is right...I def shouldn't log my calories if I'm gonna do this. I got so stressed. Then I felt super hungry. Kept eating fruit...wasn't even touching my hunger. Tried a few crackers. Nope. Bagel w cream cheese. Nope. Nick said hey you want subway??? Sure I might as well have a freaking cheat day at this point. Tuna sub later...ugh!!! Over 2800 calories today and now I feel like a failure. Starting over tomorrow and NOT logging. Maybe I'll do better.

I'm trying something new for the next week or so. I'm not going to worry about calories. Instead I'm going to continue to limit grains and focus on eating plenty of healthy fats, protein, fruit and veggies. I'm going to eat when I'm hungry instead of just at certain times during the day. I'm spending too much time waiting to be able to eat. It's ridiculous I'm always freaking hungry. I can't live like that. I'll still log my food just to see my calorie intake, but not worry if I go "over". I'm hoping this works well bc it's the only way I'm ever going to free myself from logging all my foods forever. Fingers crossed!

    I think this sounds like a plan.  I think eating like this works great.  I log too but since I eat mostly clean, I don't worry too much about calories.

    Oh good I'm glad to see it works for someone else :)
    I want to lose about 10-12 more lbs. Hoping this does it :)

    This "not worrying about calories" thing is a challenge. I'm eating whenever I'm hungry, and it's all good stuff, but every time I log another food I cringe. This is hard :/
    I'm already at 1441 calories!!

    I wouldn't log while you do this.  It's too easy to get focused on the numbers.

    I've lost most of my weight without logging.  If you're focused on proper portions, eating only until you're satisfied, eating only when you're genuinely hungry, and eating quality foods, you'll be okay.
