Use the food tracker, and track vitamins as well. Your focus will be changed from losing weight to ensuring you are getting everything your body needs. To make sure you are eating enough is real work.
- Exercise for the sake of exercise is lame. I never enjoyed that, but I do like sports. I am currently too heavy to play the sports I did as a youth, but bowling and the Wii Fit are both fun. I like to look at exercise as a form of play.
For many years I did diets and gyms, but failed as they were all punitive. I don't work with negativity, as it only made me worse. I thrive on the positives. Punishing myself by limiting my calories, and forcing myself to do mindless exercise activities failed every time. I find my new focus with the food tracker tends to be more on sodium, and not just the calories.
Try a fun activity with friends and family. Don't do it because it is good for you. Do it because it is fun. I recently picked up my nordic skis from home, and intend to get out on the trails. Sure, I'll be slow and look like a sack of potatoes out there, but I'm doing it for fun. I don't care what others think, or how fast they are.

May God grant us the ability to choose wisely,
May God grant us the courage to say no,
and may we be thankful for what we have, rather than focusing on what we do without.
