That's great! I find when I track my food that makes me really pay attention to my eating. And that leads to me working out. And I figure if I'm gonna spend all that time working out I don't want to waste my efforts by eating wrong. It's a cycle, all in all tracking is a terrific tool. Happy sparking emoticon

Tracking helps me, too. I also find I am much better off if I track my food in advance. I avoid the urge to order in or go out to eat when I see that I have already entered my food.

That's great - I'm glad you've found such a useful tool. I, too, like racking up the fitness minutes on the tracker. My pedometer is a nudge, too, to get up and move. I wear it constantly and check it frequently to make sure I'm on track and figure out if I need to plan a bit more exercise at some point in the day.

Good luck!

To be frank, I don't like to exercise. But I do it because I know it's crucial to my weight loss and overall well-being. That said, I have found tracking my workouts necessary. If I don't track, I could easily shrug off exercise for the day. But with that fitness tracking option looking at me, it's almost as if a voice is saying, "Get off your duff. Walk. Run. Ride your bike. Do SOMETHING."
So I do. It REALLY helps.
