To make tracking my food a bit easier, when I first log in to SP I add all the food I plan on eating that day this way I have an idea ahead of time of what my calories will be and if there is something I don't eat it is easy to just delete the item at the end of the day.
If you don't measure and don't track, you really have no idea whether or not you are following your program. So often people complain that 'they are doing everything right, but not losing' only to find that they don't measure OR track!
Losing weight and changing your life isn't an easy thing to do. Join a Spark Team and make Spark Friends that motivate and encourage you. I've learned to be more active with this and it helps me out more than anything else I am doing.
i pour my cup of coffee and sit down with the lappy. i go to the spark points page and scroll down to the bottom of the daily points section. i start there and go up, checking as i go. i take a break to make breakfast and log my nutrition points for that and i know when i get to the top it's time to work out! i try to max out my points each day as a goal. i read articles that inspire and educate and i keep trying to get to the next trophy. i like them for whatever reason! makes me feel good!
