I have a control Journal which came from the fly lady plan. In the journal I keep my budgets, to do list, shopping list, menu plans, and other helpful information. I decorated it with all my favorite motivational quotes and it keeps me going. Decorating it makes it more fun to carry around and all information I need to remain focused and accountable are in it.

I love to write and anybody who knows me knows I keep many journals. One I keep is called a Humour Journal, another a Blessings Journal and a Happy Journal. They sound similar but are different. When I am feeling down I pick up one of these and flip through my entries and it picks my mood up.
Humour Journal is where you write things that make you laugh; Blessings is where you write down ALL you can think of you are blessed with; Happy Journal is a place to write down the thinngs, people etc., that cause happiness. Writing them down preserves the memory & lifts you when you feel down.
I feel that the most important part of my diet is.......
Keeping a food journal!!
I started my diet in 2/09 with WW and have lost 33 lbs since then. It may not seem like much, but I can't do much physical exercise due to various arthritic and nerve damage. The food journal is what keeps me going. When I don't track, I don't lose. It makes me aware of what I put in my mouth.
