Secrets of Success

No Secret - Really!



1) first - concentrate on logging nutritional intake until it is second nature. (Take the time whether in a marathon or over several days - no problem.) I usually log it several times a day so that I can adjust the later meals and snacks to balance the day as best practical.
2) second - learn the logging system for aerobic conditioning and/or strength training, etc. and keep it up each day. (Learn it and use it EVERY day!)
3) third - chasing SparkPoints leads one thru the site very well.

  • I find that keeping my food and exercise log is a real help. You know that when you eat something that will through you of tract, you can just give up for the day and say will I blew that. I find that when you put what you eat in your tracker you will compensate for what you thing you messed up on and at the end of the day you are OK with you food intake. Also, if you track your exercise you will be amazed at what you have done for the day. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK! - by MEMEMAWMAW

    I find by tracking my food, I'm not getting enough of one thing or another. The next day I'll tweak it and get a better balance. By using these tracking tools, I find this is much easier than going at it on a wish and a prayer. Though I have lost a lot of weight over the years, I would always gain it back. I am looking forward to shedding the weight this time and maintaining my newfound healthy life-style. - by DVSONE47
