I remember to write down what I ate if I am away from my computer.

I had forgotten about that show and where they put everything on the table from the week! It was horrifying. I remember one time where everything was the same color: like the color of tortillas. Not a vegetable in site, and most everything had been fried.

UMBILICAL: What do you mean "small" ? I don't understand your comment.

Yes, I do track my meals here. But when I'm out to eat, I can't access SP. That's why i take the pics. emoticon

If just watching what I eat ain't enough, I'm not going to obsess further with photo taking. Carry a little note book with you to jot it down. Think "LIFETIME:" and will you be willing to do that for the rest of your lifetime, whatever you do to watch your portions.

I think that sounds like an excellent idea. It reminds me of a weight loss TV show in the UK where they lay out on a table everything the person has eaten for a week (while they were tracking them), and it always seems to drive the point home to actually look at it all.

Do you track your food here? I just ask because it's a great way to see exactly how much you ate per day; how many calories, carbs, fat, protein, sodium, etc. you ate per day/per week.

I've heard of programs where clients send in the picture and the registered dietitian reviews it and provides feedback.

I've started taking pictures of the food when I eat out. It helps me recall EXACTLY what I ate and the portions I chose. emoticon

Keeps me honest, too! emoticon
