I have reached goal thanks to SP and the main help in achieving my weight loss is tracking my food intake. There have been only a few days that I did not write down my meals, and that vigilance is still helping me maintain the loss.

Not really a secret to SPers but I have found that when I have gotten out of tracking is when I plateau. Which then I realize is not really a plateau but me overeating. LOL! When I track I lose--bottom line!
If you work out at a track and lose track of your lap count, try wearing shorts or sweats with two pockets. Put a hand full of beans, dimes or pennies in your left pocket. Each time you complete a lap, take a marker out of one pocket and transfer it to the other.....4 beans, 4 laps, 1 mile, etc.
