Hi folks. I use the tracker every time I eat something. As soon as I finish eating it I track it so I know where I'm sitting for the day. There is no way I could have lost this weight without writing everything down.

Cherala,
I forgot to mention in my post about using the recipe calculator.
I will calculate before I make a dish to see if it is figure friendly and nutritionally sound.
That gives me the option of changing the ingredients if necessary.
Thanks for mentioning it.
The calculator has made things so easy for me!

I second JENAE954 - I could not have lost the weight without the Nutrition Tracker. I do track several times a day as well as using the Recipe Calculator to enter my recipes and then decide on a portion size instead of eyeballing it.

Tracking has been one of the best things for accountability.
Couldn't have lost all this weight without is.
I use it daily and sometimes more than once a day.

Thanks for your replies. Renew, I am so impressed that you are pre-tracking a week at a time. That is so great! I don't know if I can do an entire week but you've Sparked me to track days ahead when I can. emoticon

i feel have a tight schedule so I plan for the whole week, Everything! That way I can figure in a cheat food so I don't crave and do overboard, I can shop on a weekend and just buy what I need and I can batch cook and freeze and have relax me time too.

I pre plan what I am going to eat at my major meals and track it, and then fill in snacks between the meals in appropriate calories to make my total calories

I keep track of everything I eat, but not in the tracker.

Hi Groupies,

I'd like to know how you are using your nutrition tracker and here is why I am asking:
I'm usually good as gold all day but I have real trouble staying on task in the evening. In the past I found myself going into the evening hours 800-1000 calories short because I never overindulge during the day but I was still cutting back anyway for fear of having nothing left later. When "later" arrived I'd blow the entire bank and then some because I'd be so flipping hungry (and very often quite grumpy) that I'd overeat at dinnertime and still have that "gotta have something else" feeling.

Since my new resolve over a week ago I started doing something a little different. Instead of waiting until I get home from work to track, I've been filling in the tracker in the morning with foods that I know I am going to be eating for breakfast and lunch anyway. As long as I was doing that I figured I'd preload my Skinny Cow ice cream sandwich nightcap (this is a new thing for me as I always would just buy light ice cream and eyeball my portion BUT if I had a lot of calories left I'd load up the bowl). On several occasions I already knew what I was making for dinner so I went ahead an preloaded dinner too. I was amazed at the number of calories I still had to play with so I worked in some smaller extra eats here and there (cottage cheese with cinnamon to eat while I'm making dinner, a slice of bread with a tablespoon of peanut butter to have when I take my afternoon break, etc...) I'm finding that preloading the tracker is really helping me put the kibosh on my nighttime naughtiness.

At least one day I didn't know what I was going to have for dinner but after I filled in everything else I saw that I had about 575 calories left and that was great because I basically had just backed myself into my dinner calorie goal. I know this sounds a lot like meal planning (duh!) but it really doesn't feel that way.

How do you feel about the tracker? How are you using it?

Thanks for your input.
