For the first few months I needed to log on to keep me going in the right direction...but time & time again, I've gotten home tired and ready to give up. After going through the Sparkpoints, I found nuggets of inspiration and motivation that got me off my tookus and in to exercise. My attitude was better and once I started to exercise, my positive frame of mind was back!
I've lost over 100 lbs. since Jan.!

Have started preparing brown-bag lunches for the next day right after dinner the night before...so its set in stone what I will eat. At breakfast the next morning, I log what I am eating and I "Pre-log" my lunch...it helps me stick to it.
After dinner (and preparing tomorrow's lunch), I log dinner and "Pre-log" an evening snack.
I do not know whether it is just the benefit of pre-planning or the guilt of cheating on myself....this works for me.
