    This is the first time in all my dieting life that I am tracking my food intake. It's only day 2 but I am going to do this! What I have been doing is writing it down in a notebook I keep in the kitchen and then when I have time - I enter it into my nutrition tracker. I find myself making better choices now that I have to report to myself! - by GAMMAKISS
  • Since I don't always have access to the Internet, I bought a little notebook called a Fitbook...I love it! I track my food/exercise/goals all in one place, and it's small enough to carry in my purse. And it has space for notes about what's working and what's not, and it breaks my goals down into weeks, with weekly weights, fat %, plans & goals, and rewards....it's very motivating. - by CHANARO
  • I definitely will forget if i don't do it as I go. Sometimes some items really shock me when I see what a hit they take on my calorie count! emoticon - by SLIMSOLO10
