Welcome to Spark People! I too hate to track what I eat so I just eliminated that step. I still plan healthy meals and snacks but, I skip the step of tracking it because it seems like a chore. I decided to track other things that are fun and rewarding such as exercising, drinking more water, or small goals that I set for myself. For example, this week I cut sugar out of my coffee. I still like my coffee and think of all the calories I have saved! I also find it hard to fit in exercising on my long work days so I decided if I can't do a workout then I would at least fit in 10-15 minutes of stretching or yoga type exercise before and after work. Guess what? I found that to be more relaxing than hard work and at least I am giving myself credit for doing something! Hoping that small everyday changes will lead to a big change in the future!
Best wishes on your journey to a healthier you!
If you truly count your blessings, you may find they add up more than counting your sorrows!

I started a job that requires a lot of travelling. Have gained ALOT of weight in a year. I am desperate to try anything to lose it!!! I know I will struggle with this since I hate tracking what I eat.. Find it hard to exercise between flying and driving. I feel lost..
