Eating properly, tracking food, exercise, and doing it day by day. Seems to make a difference. Keep on and success is yours.

I second the motion on the trackers. This is the single most important thing you can do when starting out. I also agree with concentrating on calories and let the other nutrients slide a little till you've lost some weight. Then you can fine tune your program with nutrient balance and targeted exercise. To start with, cutting calories and upping activity are the big deals. Good luck and welcome to the team!

Welcome back. I agree with you on the tracking, to me, it is the key to this whole process. Exercise is good (and I'm doing a ton of it!) but its bonus: tracking is the key.

Two bits of advice: 1) at first, I wouldn't worry too much about hitting all the nutrients and vitamins: we have enough to worry about just with portion control. Once you're comfortable with tracking, and are staying in your range, you can focus on hitting the nutrients as well.

The trick to eating less is finding foods that keep you full longer; that means fiber. Whether cereals or bars, or fruit, or whole grain breads, muffins, etc. the more fiber you eat, the less hungry you'll be. Key is to find stuff that you like.

Good luck!

Hi everyone. I've been back on the SP system about 2 weeks now. As I expected, I have been very bad about tracking all my food, water intake, etc on the nutrition tracker. I feel guilty about this.

However, I did do it for a couple days, and I think it helped give me a feel for how I should be eating to create a calorie deficit. I also started working out again. As of today,I've lost about 6 pounds since I started!! Yeah me.

I do want to try to get into a more regular routine of tracking things because I think it will keep me on track.

Hope everyone is doing well. Have a great weekend and happy Father's Day to all the dads on here.
