Default This research just in!

Today's yahoo news, they had this article. I personally know that it works for me, but myproblem, which is key, is getting more than one week into the diary thing!!!!!!!!!

Timothy 4:8 (King James Version) 8For bodily exercise profiteth little: but godliness is profitable unto all things, having promise of the life that now is, and of that which is to come.

I have been doing that for many years (out of habit and even when i am not following an eating plan)......and I find when I don't lose weight I can look back and see my week at a glance and see where my mistakes were etc......

I saw the Yahoo article as well, and was thinking "yup, yup, yup!" Every time I'm keeping track HONESTLY about what I'm eating, I do much better than if I just do "whatever."

I've tried (repeatedly) to lose weight without keeping track or counting calories, but that just leads to slower weight gain. Counting and logging = weight loss for me.

Hmmm, looks to me like some writer has been lurking around 3FC
Seems to me that's one of the first things veteran 3FC members tell the new members looking for advice.

Dieting is hard. Maintenance is hard. Being fat is hard. Pick your hard.

I guess I kinda do this. Sometimes I wing it, and for a while I tracked online (Fitday), but since I've been losing very slowly lately, I decided to go to a simplified tracking system. I made a chart to track things that need to be limited (fats, nuts, etc.), and things I need to make sure I get enough of (veggies, water...), so I can check off throughout the day.
Life's a journey, not a destination.
It's easier to stay on plan than to get back on plan.

I seriously dont know what I would do without calorie king. Being able to have calories and fat for everything at my finger tips and being able to track everything I eat. The days I dont track or plan out what I am eating, I go way over. it truly keep you accountable.

When I saw the headline "A study finds dieters who did this one thing lost twice as much weight as those who didn't" I was really hoping that it was something that I didn't do. But nope.....keeping a food diary for me is essential when I'm really focused on getting the pounds off.
