I've been managing my nutrition for 88 week. Through the first 30 weeks and 65 pounds of loss, I did a lot of guesstimation along the lines of the following excellent SP article -- www.sparkpeople.com/reso
However, then calorie allowances began to shrink much faster, and I found I needed to weigh or measure the volume of everything I consumed, as well as my own weight, and my exercise output.
I told Beth the only thing I wanted for my birthday was an accurate kitchen scale that measured in grams and ounces and that automatically subtracted tare weight.
That little gem is the best purchase we've ever made.
This morning I weighed in at a weight that, Beth, my wife of 43 years has never before seen me at.
That scale is one of a handful of tools that have not only made over 100 pounds of weight loss possible -- but relatively comfortable.
Five factors in establishing fitness: plan, execute, *MEASURE*, record, adjust.
