Brutal Honesty


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I have found that staying brutally honest in my food and exercise tracking is key. It makes it look nicer if I say I only had a serving of cheerios on my food log, even if I really ate 3 servings, but in the end, the only person that is cheating is myself.

    Yep, you can cheat the food tracker, but that doesn't help my rear end get any smaller, LOL!

    You are so right. When I first joined, I was acting like what I ate didn't count if I didn't list it. I'm actually smarter than that, but go figure. Eventually I faced reality and began to actually use it as a tool to guide me in the right direction.

    That is so true! I don't always like what the tracker says when I'm truly honest with my tracking.

    I can relate completely.. sometimes I feel that way.. Looks better, but it's all about being honest with myself.

    I COMPLETELY agree! :)
