"We gotta make a change...
It's time for us as a people to start makin' some changes.
Let's change the way we eat, let's change the way we live
and let's change the way we treat each other.
You see the old way wasn't working so it's on us to do
what we gotta do, to survive." - Tupac Shakur

When I first started SP almost 5 years ago, the tracker was the thing that helped me the most-by keeping me accountable and letting me see where I needed to make the most changes. Yes, it can be time consuming, but if it helps us to reach our goals, it will be worth every minute!

I have used pen & paper before to keep track of what I ate and the calories for the day. After using SP's tracker for awhile, i pretty much knew when I was going over my daily limits.

After losing 75 pounds, I hit menopause and it is now a struggle to lose anymore. So, I had to seek different methods to get back on the losing path. Sometimes it takes awhile to find what works best for us-we're all different and what works best for me might not be what works for you!

Now I am just eating when physically hungry and stopping when full. There is no calorie counting, but I have tracked my food for a few days too just to compare & it usually comes out about the same no. of calories recommended!! Our bodies are designed to tell us when to eat/drink and will even crave things that are needed if we listen to it.

Try new things and find what works best for YOU!! And enjoy your journey!

Hi and welcome. So glad you are here to make a change. I understand what a pain tracking everything you eat can be but I have been doing this for about 3 years and have to say if I didn't track everything I ate I know I would not have lost 128 pounds. After you get familiar with everything join some teams. Teams are great for motivation, support and accountability! Good luck on your journey!

Girl, tracking on the spark food tracker is much easier than you think....
it even allows for snacks, if you wish, without going over your calorie spread.
Better to try it than "buy it "..
I am 184 and have been unsuccessful at achieving my goals... even though people keep telling me I look so much better. I have lost 34 pounds and 27 inches...
my goal is 166 which is what weight my doctor wants me because it will put me in the normal range. So keep in touch and lets see who can get there first...
