Baby steps hun! It's all baby steps. Start today with tracking...then in a couple of days, add in water....then staying within the calorie count....then some exercise. I find that taking small steps keep me more focused then trying to everything at once! You can do this and have already taken the right step by being here!
NEL0224: I've done this more times than I can count. I almost felt humiliated when I had to admit this to myself. The only cure for this is to track NOW. Track your next meal-no matter how obscene it may be. I personally would stop tracking when I didn't want to admit to myself that my habits were unhealthy. If you don't track it, you can't know how bad it really was. It's like it never happened. Once you see it on the screen, you can face yourself and stop running from the horrible denial monster and get back on track!
You can do this! You just have to be accountable.

We all have times when we don't feel like tracking, but just do it. Start right now, with the next meal, and just do it. Yes it takes time, but it's worth it... you're worth it. Gail
Your mind is too strong enough! You did it before, so you know it is. Give yourself some credit and then decide that you are just going to do it - that you are going to track the next thing you eat. You can do it!

Get back on track with your next meal, your next exercise. I've noticed that if I say to myself "I'm going to work out for 10 minutes today" I end up working out longer. If I say "I'm going to track my food today" I end up eating better! I think it will help if you talk to yourself - it becomes a positive affirmation.
