I use the tracker because it helps keep me accountable, but I usually alter the menus and occasionally go over by 200 calories or so. Not every day or even every week, but once in awhile if I'm hungry,
Also, I eat what i want on weekends. But I do track it.
The challenge for me is to NOT make this into a deprivation diet. Because if I do, I'll just gain it all back. I lost nearly 30 pounds on WW and kept 20 of it off for two years. So if I can lose 20 here and keep 10 or 15 off, I'll feel pretty good about that.
I think one reason people don't succeed is they diet instead of eat differently. For me the way I think about it matters a lot. I don't want to be food-phobic.
