Hi if anyone is interested in seeing my food journal on fitday this is the link Louise thought it would be good to post it as a l resource/ I am a very heavy on fruit... not good for diabetics... if anyone is diabetic it would be good to post their journal too because mine is just my way of eating healthy Hugs Judy:)
I have made up a food journal much like the fitday journal counting Cals. Carbs. Fats & Prot. I use the "Protein Counter" book to track my calories. I write my findings in a small Rolodex logging in common foods that I eat. I have been at this for literally years... Yesterday, I ate 1,916 calories, too much but it's a start.
I guess never giving up is the key and I'm hoping eventually I get it right.
well counting is good but there is a margin of error in counting calories easy to under estimate If you have a food scale you can weigh and measure the foods to get a better calorie count too ... thats righ never give up this is a forever plan ... look over your logging and see what is adding in the most calories . I avoid most proccessed foods. they can be deceptive in calorie reporting ... Hugs Judy:)

I just started again but I've been at this a long time. I have a digital food scale and when I'm on plan I weigh and measure everything. I rarely eat anything processed because of the bad fats and salt content.
My problem has been sticking to my eating plan. I have worked on the life style change and I have changed my eating habits to healthier food choices but I'm still eating too much.
This time I feel like maybe I can succeed if I really try. I have all my ducks in row and have a pretty good idea how to get the job done. I realize once I'm there I will have to maintain but I'll cross that bridge when I come to it.
