Working hard at DASH with Daniel plans of getting heart healthy

Borrowed part of a facebook post and then putting my present status nd will keep working t goals or targets:
6/25 Did you know that people who keep food journals lose twice as much weight as those who don’t? Journaling is effective not only with food, but with all five Essentials. Start with food. Write down everything you eat: portion size, type of food, time, how you feel when eating it (stress, hunger, boredom, fatigue). Writing down what you eat does two things: It makes you conscious of what you really are eating, and it helps you shift and change your habits.

Carefully entering all foods into a spreadsheet with verification of potassium amounts from labels or USDA Food site on internet

Health Goals:

    I am praying that this plan is a huge help to you and that you start losing the weight and feeling better soon. We are really close in weights now as I have gained a lot after my thyroid ablation. Maybe we can work together to get this extra poundage off....

    I love journaling, whether a healthy living journal, grief journal, just life journal . . . but I just don't find the time I wish I could devote to it - so it often goes undone.

    Hugs - proud of you the way you are kicking your way back to the top!

    I love Spark for all its resources for tracking!

    I do a variation of this with the WW program. We have a journal already prepared to fill in.

    It does seem like a good thing to do, but it also looks like a *lot* of work. I'm not sure I could keep up with tracking so many things.
