I consider the fact that I wrote it all down to be my "step 1" - and just doing that is a win! So the fact that you can identify better choices and hopefully make them next time is like icing on the cake. :)

I know in the 4-Hour-Body book, the author references some information showing that just being aware of your food by tracking (either writing it down or taking pictures) without making any effort to actually change your diet will still result in weight loss. Sounds right to me - now, when I chose to eat more, just knowing that I'll have to write it down makes me a little more mindful and gives me a few seconds to THINK about what I'm eating, not just eat because that's what my emotions or my tastebuds want.

Yesterday is but a dream, tomorrow but a vision. But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness, and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well, therefore, to this day.

Just wanted to stop in and say hello. Hope you all have had a wonderful day. Today was my first real day of tracking and I dont think I did too bad. Think i could have made some better food choices, but I gotta start somewhere! Have a good night everyone!
