Are you losing up to your potential? As I look at a few friend's tracker's that I refereed to SP, I wonder "How much they are learning?" I see them doing the same thing I did when I first started SP to lose weight. I tried to eat the same Pop Tarts, candy bars, and fast food but just reduce the amount. This left me hungry all the time. Then I realized that all the tools are here, I just wasn't using them. I first let SP plan my nutrition with the tracker setting. Then I experimented with some recipes of my own. I also went through other SP nutrition trackers to get ideas. My lunch time ritual to go to the café blog and read other blogs, even list a few of my own, and learn from other SP. Another thing I did was guessing portion size....boy, was I way off! The kitchen scale was a wise investment. I did an experiment once on the nibbling I did and never tracked. A bite of leftover pancakes when clearing the table, a few chips when packing the kids lunch, and a few tastes of dinner. Just the nibbling alone was over 100 calories!
