I have used Fitness Pal quite a bit, but you're right about logging in physically; it can sometimes be a better help. It's especially true if you keep a log with you wherever you go.

Thanks again for the post. Giving real examples can be helpful to a lot of peeps.
not a problem! i quite enjoy keeping the log.

i stopped keeping a physical log, actually, but that's because i'm really good at remembering what i ate so i don't NEED to write it... so this is where i keep my log now. and i'm getting good at estimating how many calories i've had so far, so eating out isn't even a problem!

yes it can! they can look and see "oh wow, she eats a lot, but it's mostly low-cal, i bet i could do it too!" and of course they can easily see exactly what the low-calorie foods are :3

I am in NJ too and we are the same height, but you are much younger, ha.

I always enjoy seeing food logs, so thanks for posting them! I've been tracking on sparkpeople quite a bit.

and thank you for your encouragement, i totally appreciate it.

and calorie-counting is very easy once you get used to it. i've even been memorizing the calories of things i eat often without trying. if you look at my logs you'll see i eat a lot of the same stuff... coffee w/ 1/2 tsp agave nectar and 1 tsp creamer per mug at 2 mugs a morning = 76, tuna on cucumber = approx 205-225 (depending on if it's chunk light or solid white), 5 dark hershey kisses = 128, yoghurt and berries = 100, etc etc etc. i no longer have to look those up, they are in my brain. and for anything i don't know and/or that doesn't have it labelled on the package (for instance, veal or chicken), i use caloriecount for. i suggest going for it, try doing some counting, you'll be surprised at how easy it is!!

i am 22 :3 so yeah pretty young haha, which is good because that makes it easier to change my diet. i've even been turning down food i like because i know the calories or sodium is way too high. and i've found plenty of low-cal stuff i like, such as my yoghurt or apples with 0-calorie caramel sauce.

and i'm glad people like that i post my logs, i do it just to keep track of myself but knowing that i'm somehow helping others just by posting them publicly makes me feel good :3

That's not true. Not even a little bit. I think it's important to know that! Especially since this is a public forum, I'd hate for someone else to read that and take it as truth, since it isn't. Fat gain come from calorie excess, not from confusing your body by eating at different calorie levels daily. If you are in a deficit, you are in a deficit, period. If you are in an excess, that is what makes you gain fat.


Keep up the good work, though! I think it's great your record here!
