Secrets of Success

Track Everything




Write down EVERY LITTLE THING you eat and drink, and its caloric content. Make sure you do not go over your calorie/fat/carb/etc count for the day.

More Information:

Whenever we're asked at our Weight Watchers meeting what helps us lose weight, I'm not the only one who says: TRACKING. Writing everything down and being completely aware of what I"m eating (AND NOT CHEATING) helps me keep track and stay within my Points/allowances.
