"Journaling" My Food

Recommended Posts

Okay - so I figured something out - and I know this will have some "duh!" factor to it.

I really pay attention to what I put in my mouth and to how much I'm exercising if I keep track of it.

Again, I know this isn't ground breaking or anything, but I can't stress how important this is! After working on a lot of different websites I've decided that I like www.livestrong.com the best. Mostly because I can track everything quickly and it seems to have so many of the items I eat (lots of organic stuff) on the lists.

I can track exercise (woot! I've been walking a mile + every single day) and how much water I'm drinking.

So one day I notice I've eaten 800 calories - the next day I realize I ate 1400... I can actually see WHERE and make the adjustments and try to find substitutions for the items that I could have done better with.

Also - it tells me how much protein I've eaten... now I look for food with lots of protein.

So - I know you all know about writing down what you're eating... just wanted to share this website as an option.

Under "diet and food" there are some of us that journal our food every day. It is a big help to me and anyone is welcome to join us!

I track everything on weightwatchers.com and plan on continuing this habit after my procedure. My problem is I need to be more consistant with it. A lot of times I will track right up to dinner but then forget it. Or I will not track on the weekends. So my focus will be tracking for every meal and every day.
