Today I started logging my food on mynetdiary.com again. I found this tool to be very useful during the first 20lb Challenge I did last fall. I have talked to a few other successful participants and logging food was a main component of their weight loss success. I have heard some complaints about the user friendliness of mynetdiary.com and I do know other participants have used Livestrong successfully. Whether you use an internet program or just write your food down it is just one more way to be accountable for what you eat.
Today is my 2nd day sugar free. I made a pact with a good friend yesterday. We are going sugar free for one month. If there is ever a slip up we will put a dollar in a jar. This is for every slip up not just daily. Whoever has the most money at the end loses and that money goes to the other person. I can be super competitive so this is another way I am making myself accountable for what I put in my mouth. Sugar is my downfall! I love ice cream, brownies, sugar in my coffee, yada, yada, yada…….
Does anyone out there have other suggestions to make yourself accountable for the food you eat?
