When I'm tracking faithfully, I can lose weight. When I don't, I tend to cheat and eat mindlessly and the pounds pack on.
Isn't that the truth?

There is a feature where you can save your recipes on WW so you don't have to input them every time. It's takes awhile to build up but is easier the longer you use the etools. You can also do meals for easier input -- I rotate through a couple of breakfasts so it is easy to track.

This is absolutely true!

Sounds like you have a busy week ahead of you, Pamela!

Have ordered in a delivery of diet meals as it is school holidays over Easter and I know that being out of routine can lead to snacking and I need to keep things under control or at least try. So I have 4 weeks of the diet plan.
Having a diet plan is a good way to not have to track -- someone else did all the calculating for you.

Tracking helps you have a realistic idea of what your intake is on any day -- study after study shows that it is incredibly easy to underestimate the number of calories you consume.

I think when you have a larger amount of weight to lose it is better to break things down so it doesn't get overwhelming. Let us know how your plan is working for you!

I just got a bunch of DIS members as friends and love to see everyone's progress, so if anyone else here would like to add me, I am eclemens428.

I also wear a BodyFit which coordinates with MFP which I love as well. Except the exercise does not show up on my feed on MFP, so I feel kind of bad when I see others' awesome posts about "burning 621 calories," etc.
Hmm, can you manually input your BodyFit data on MFP? Just so you have the whole picture in one place?

Kudos to you on your tracking streak!

As I lose weight, I'm finding that my metabolism is always changing, and a splurge meal of a slice of pizza does not affect me and my weight the same way it used to. While I feel grosser than I used to, I don't gain as much from one splurge meal.
Do you ever use any of the progress reports available on WW? That might help with learning from the data. I think your point that your body is constantly adapting and what works this week may not work the next is a great one! We are always a work in progress!

Whatever works for you!

One of my WATP friends who paper tracks folds an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of paper into 1/8th and uses one square for each day and notes in the last box -- fits in a pocket quite nicely.
