Be Honest With Yourself

This Sparked Me!

Being honest and writing everything down helps me stay on track. When I stop writing small amounts, the calories add up and the pounds do too.

Writing everything also allows me to track cravings and trends. This helps me prepare for the next "cycle" of them. If I am expecting them, I can adjust early, thus saving myself headaches and guilt.

    As one blog said, when I cheat (on writing Everything down), I am only cheating myself.

    Hi people,
I'm new here so I'm just figuring out all these excellent sites. (I hope I can find this again to read any answers that come my way. I have not lost any weight for quite some time, however I am losing inches from my body. I am confused as I'm exercising every day on the treadmill for 40 minutes with mixed jogging, sprinting and walking, plus watching what I eat. I eat a very small evening meal and try to be active most days. Help! when I type in my height and weight it tells me I'm obese, but my body size doesn't show it as that. Does anyone have any answers please?
