    I have to go with food tracking also--planning my menu at the beginning of the day rather than letting my appetite and cravings do the choosing of what, when, and how much for me. emoticon

    I exercise, every single day. This is a big change for me--I have learned how to eat and lose weight over and over again in my life, but actually exercising is new. My family understands that I am going to do this and they now include it in our daily activities, even is I cannot get anyone to join me. I never, ever thought that this would be a part of my life, but I am so glad that it is!!
Gentle hugs,
Sylvia

    My biggest change is not staying in bed all day, everyday.

    One of the biggest changes is actually talking about my weight issues with people instead of keeping it to myself. I've always kept this inside. I've never even told anyone my real weight until recently. (My driver's license still says 195 lb, yeah right! About 15 years ago!!)

I'd love to have more people to talk with about things though. If you need some support, we can support each other! That's the great thing about this site! Meeting people who have the same struggles you have and realizing you're not alone. emoticon

    Inputting what I eat into the Nutrition Tracker has been a serious eye-opener. What I ate has HOW many calories?!? So I am more mindful of what I am putting in my mouth because I have the knowledge now of how many calories/fat grams/sodium is in most food items.

    Watching what i eat and having a healthier relationship with food. The tracking on SP has been a great tool and gives me the reality check i need now and again.

    SIMPLY THINKING BEFORE I EAT SOMETHING. EVEN IN A FAST FOOD RESTAURANT (WHERE DH SEEMS TO LIVE) YOU CAN CHOOSE A SALAD AND YOGURT INSTEAD OF THAT GREASY BURGER. OR TRY SOME CHILI - EVEN IN THE SUMMER. IT'S FILLING AND BETTER FOR YOU THAN FRIES AND A SHAKE.

    Tracking my food and learning what an actual proportion size is. For years I'd been WAY too much!

    Tracking my food made the whole difference. I've started down the exercise path about 20 times before but I've never seen the results I do now. I'm 2 months into my new lifestyle and I'm finally able to tell when I'm actually hungry and when I'm thirsty or just bored. That was always my biggest problem.

    Definitely tracking all my food. It has taken me 8 months to lose 10 pounds, now I am down 20 altogether which is more than I have done with other "diets" Now it is a lifestyle change for me.

    I started keeping a food journal (electronic) again. emoticon
It always helps me.

    I think my biggest change is Consistency--before SparkPeople I labored under the delusion that I was trying to eat healthy and exercise, but it isn't until I start tracking this stuff on SparkPeople and watching my SparkStreaks that I saw and realized how hit and miss my good intentions actually were panning out--or should I say NOT panning out. emoticon

    Giving up my Monster energy drinks, my pot a coffee a day because I like the flavored creamers and that's just too many empty calories and we are no longer ordering take out but making healthy home cooked meals (and saving money!)
