Kick Off Week Day 5 - Sunday

Count every little thing that passes your lips.

It is so easy to get lazy about this.  
However, if I stop counting, I overeat.
Count every. Single. Thing.

When you grab that small handful of M&M's, you think it's not a big deal.  Snack on a few crackers.  Whatever little things you like to graze on, add up fast.

Measure it, count it and write it down.
If nothing else, it will make you aware of how much you should be eating in order to lose weight.

I do the old Weight Watchers points.  I get 24 points per day, and those points can get eaten up really fast with snacking.
Even after you've been doing this awhile, and you think you know what you're doing and you think you don't have to keep track.
Keep track!


  1. A friend of mine who has been successful at losing weight and has kept up with her WW meetings once told me that "If you stick with the plan 100% of the time, you will get 100% results, and if you only stick with it 50% of the time, you only get half the results." It's only as good as the effort you put into it.

    My words of wisdom for the day! LOL

  2. I have been mentally keeping track of my calories, however... when a majority of my 2000 calories is junk I'm not doing myself any favors. I have a new day planner and after putting my work schedule down, I'm still left with a lot of room... I should track my food there. I'll be accountable and see everything that I'm eating every time I open it up.
