I have just discovered the note section at the bottom of the food tracker page. It has been really helpful to me as I evaluate my food choices for the day. It's easy to add my thoughts, ways to tweak my choices and celebrate my wins.

When feeling a mindless eating day coming on, I will put in my tracker what my other meals will be for the day ahead of time, right after breakfast. I have made a commitment to eat only those things listed on my tracker. Who wants to spend the time and erase all those entries and see unhealthy food in place of what you've made a commitment to eat for the day
I even put down the exercise I will do for the day in the notes section of my food tracker.
Fitness Page - Mileage Tracking: Add Personal Identifying Notes
Most days I break my walking into various minute segments. I use the "Note" area on the Optional Mileage Tracking section of the Fitness Tracker to note what or where or when I walked. Helps me remember how I reached my daily total or beyond. For example: Today I entered my Walk Slim DVD for 30 minutes, my walk to the mail box for 10 minutes, & a random walk at 3:00 p.m. for 10 minutes.
I just completed weight watchers..........so I am combining weight watchers plus points and Sparks I note all my food intake on sparks and count the points. So the free fruit and veggies on WW .... I will eat until I make the Sparks calorie goals.......works well together. I note my WW points in the note section at the end of each day. 252
I am just starting Sparks People.........so I hope to lose 40 pounds. Good luck All!
