Measurement Is the Key (at least in my case--YMMV)
I have found that I am input and output measurement challenged.
Therefore on my route to losing over 100 pounds (I've still got about 20 to go), I have found that measurement of what I eat and drink, and exactly what exercises I do, and how long I do them, is the key.
To this end, I have:
Positioned 3x5 slips of paper, in every place that may lead to inpu, including my office, the kitchen and the den. (I have a smart phone, but input is slower, and I only tend to use that at restaurants.)
For workouts I have a checklist with all parameters, and places for notes on ease, aches, and changes required. (This is important not only for recording for Spark, and progress, but also for avoiding overdoing it.)
BTW, I weigh myself, every AM, and despite the seemingly random fluctuations, I find this useful, keeping me on track.
