It isn't quite the new year yet, but I have been trying to stick to my resolutions. I have been using my Wii or going to Curves every day, attempting to eat only in the kitchen and sadly, not writing everything down. My old computer is so pokey that using the Spark Tracker is way to slow although I may try that anyway. I can keep a little notebook next to the computer and write it down.
I had been lax in my exercise and eating too much so the results were obviously not going to be good. My scale does show some progress, not much, but at least heading a little bit down.

    Every little bit helps. Your notebook will help you. That's a good idea.

    I've been tracking in a calendar book for years; it's quick, easy and works for me. I've counted calories for so long it's rare that I have to look anything up. I keep a chart with my fitness minutes and I do enter my activity here at the end of the day; but would be fine if I didn't have access to a computer. My chart is my accountability to myself. Proud of you for getting a jump start on the new year!

    You are working on it that is the most important thing.

    Don't worry if you can't track your food on Spark's site. I can't always do it simply because it gets time consuming especially when I have to calculate recipes.

    I reason that I will learn to eat without tracking simply by living it every day. It is good that you are keeping track on paper, though. It's a very good habit that keeps us true. I do it on paper, too, at times. Sometimes I track through part of the day so I know where I stand by noon, at least. That does help.

    Best wishes! Glad to hear from you!
