So frustrating! It's not available! I live in Alberta, Canada.
Still unavailable (here in Missouri, USA) From looking at other comments, this has been a problem for quite a while. Hmm.....
Not available in Canada...Hey, could we get some maintenance over here please?
Not working. Only in Canada?
This website can use some maintenance. There are many videos that do not work, links that don't go anywhere, and articles that contain serious errors in content.
AKA I cannot see the video either, it states that the video is not available.
why would you feature a video that can't be played??
unfortunately, I can't view this video - says this video is private
note says video is unavailable.
Does not play, says it is private...:(
Had a message on the video screen saying the video wasn't available but assuming from comments it's on journaling what you eat. I've been doing it for almost 10 years--I have lost not a single pound in the last year but nor have I gained back any of the 100 or so lbs I lost. But, I'm aware that as my physical health declined so did my activity levels which is we all know is key!
Every thing works, for awhile.....it's the doing it for your lifetime that gets to you. Even knowing what's the right thing to do, seems to not help all the time. Unsatisfaction breeds going back to old habits again, because old habits made you feel comfortable, inside, right or wrong. Mental issue.
I've been tracking everything I eat for several decades. I'm tired of it. As I'm entering my senior years it's getting harder and harder to keep motivated. But it definitely shows as well.
I agree. When I don't track it is easy to "forget" some of the food I've eaten that day.
I agree. When I track I lose weight and when I stop tracking I eventually go back to old/bad habits and gain weight back. Tracking is the way to go IF you measure and weigh your food. When people say they are tracking what they eat and not losing weight I don't believe them. You can't just 'guess' if something was 4oz or 1/2 a cup, etc. Tracking is only as accurate as you make it!
Tracking my daily intake means that I have to keep track of the size of the portions. It is the discipline that lets me lose weight and keep an eye on where I go off track.
