Tracking what you eat

They say keeping a food journal helps in loosing weight. You know how they always say that if you want to shed a few pounds that first you must moniter what you put in your mouth. I usually go through out the day eating just about anything that I can find, especially while on the computer, I can eat a whole bag of chips(Part size) in one sitting! There is just a few things that I find it extremely hard to do:


*eating more veggies(Yuck)
*smaller portions(whats that?)
*snack on fruits for that sugar craving
*Write down what you eat on a daily basis.

I guess with all these small changes, it would result in me being healthy. Of course working out is part of it as well. I just have a hard time sticking to it. Once I see that I loose weight, I celebrate with junk food. And we are back to square one.

My friend says this really does help...I'm too lazy to do it. :o) She says that actually seeing what you have eaten makes you feel bad enough not to do it again. I'm not sure it would make a difference to me. LOL!

PS I don't think you have to worry about losing weight too much...you look great to me!

I have done this before and it really does help if you are accountable to all food and write everything down....every little bite. It is alot more work though than what you would think.....you feel like you're writing all the time....maybe that's only because I am snacking all the time! lol :)
