I made a chart to write everything I eat on it. I have the time of day , item, calories and carbs. I try to stay at 1600 calories a day. I am more aware of what I eat and avoid cheating because I don't want to write it on my chart. I reward myself with lettuce salads when I get craving.
I also have found that putting minced garlic on my salad satisfies my hunger and helps with weight loss. Also vinegar added to vegtables. Both are fat eaters.

Every day since I restarted at SP on Nov 1,2010 I have kept a food journal writing down everything I have eaten and drank that day. I'm using the older version of WW points to track with and I have lost 20.8 lbs so far. I use the fitness tracker to track my exercises. I found that by taking the time to write down everything, I can see where I may need to make changes or make a note on how I felt at the days end.
