I'm new to this site by 5 days. I LOVE the ability to track everything!! I decided, I have to keep my promise to myself. So, I promised to track every single morsel I ate. Every single activity. I admit, my husband and I do belong to a great health center that I never really used but I have commited to going every day this week. And, it worked! In 5 days I've already lost 5 pounds. This website has saved me! For eaters like us who need to loose 50 pounds, there's no "doing it a little at a time". There's no "saying" we're doing it and we don't. This constant typing every little piece of information is the key. It's like constantly passing a full length mirron with your skivies on! All this typing has worked! We need a positive experience as soon as possible or we'll just go back to our well developed old crummy habits. Don't get me wrong, the last 5 days have been REALLY hard but, it's working! That's what's keeping me going and not slipping back. This tracking thing is working! I make sure I track every single thing (which takes quite a bit of time!) and I'm reading what other people are saying. Try the website first. Just promise yourself you'll set up your profile, input all the info. you need to, then track everything that passes those lips for just one day. 24 hours. You'll see! You'll get on the scale tomorrow morning, first thing, and you'll see. You will have lost weight. You will! Give yourself this gift. I'll be watching to see how you did. Good luck to all of us beginners!!!!View Thread
I'm a newbee and so happy I found this forum. When logging my daily food entries on my Food Log, is there a way to completely delete an entry let's say in the Dinner catagory for example, if you've entered the information incorrectly?View Thread
