The first indicator of eventual failure is denial even in the smallest way. Don't fudge anywhere! Even if you feel ashamed about a slip up it's far better to embrace the mistake and move on then try to ignore it. It also helps when you want to see what is working and what isn't further down the road.

Be 100% honest about tracking everything you eat. The only person you are fooling if you don't is yourself. In being honest, you free yourself to make better choices by asking yourself "Do I really want to track this?"
Filling in my foodlog, my husband said, "What good is that if you lie about what you eat?" I told him "Exactly, why bother if you're not honest." When filling out your foodlog, be honest. It's most hepful if you are honest with yourself. You gotta love yourself so you can help yourself ;^)
