Secrets of Success

Brutal Honesty

  • Yep, you can cheat the food tracker, but that doesn't help my rear end get any smaller, LOL! - by CATHERINEL66
  • 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. - by KATRENIAH
  • That is so true! I don't always like what the tracker says when I'm truly honest with my tracking. - by SUETINGE
  • I can relate completely.. sometimes I feel that way.. Looks better, but it's all about being honest with myself. - by SPARKINGMYLIFE
