    Recipe for a good challenge:
    1 month
    At least 1 pen
    1 Food Journal
    Time every day to write what you eat.

    Instructions:
    Journal your food choices everyday. Work hard at it while making the best choices you can. Slip up days are allowed-who doesn't have them? Don't make them a habit, though, or this recipe will burn. Put in a place where you'll remember to write every day and do this for 31 days. Enjoy!

    So-who's in?!?

    All righty. I've done this before, but I have not been good this month-too many stress things going on. So, add me to the list for this challenge. Thanks!

    I am SO in on this one! I'll be journalling both on paper and in my 'journey back to me'. Something has GOT to start working for me!

    Ok. When I started this journey I journaled everything and put it in Fitday to get my totals each day. Since I started back to work though I do good to write down most of what I eat each day. Usually I forget to put in the little snacky candy junk (which is the most detrimental to the diet). I have not kept my fitday food log current in almost a month.

    I am ready to get fully back on track! I will journal Everything I put into my mouth and I will log it on fitday to track my calories and fat!

    Thanks for hosting this challenge! Committing to it here really helps to keep me on track!

    Count me in. I do WW online and haven't been good at journalling everything. This will help keep me accountable!

    I'm in... It is hard to do but so worth it. I find I snack with the kids without even realizing it.

    Welcome Samantha :wave2:

    Welcome Samantha!!! WISH is a great place to be :)

    Hello all new challengers. I used the Fitday thing today. I was shocked. I work around food (ice cream, sandwiches, quick foods type stuff). A shredded chicken sandwich-334 cals?! Holy cow! Next time, I think I'll pass.

    Keep up the good work all!

    I also used fitday today. I wanted an online journal and there it was. I used 26 points and 1237 calories.

    I am so far 1/31!

    Sparkpeople is a diet website (www.sparkpeople.com) that you can join for free. You can track your food, water and exercise minutes. There are 4 "stages" that you move through, establishing healthy eating habits over time. The food traking is great because it figures the calories for you- you just enter the # of servings.
    You also enter the # of minutes of you exercise (cardio and strength) and it will figure how many calories you have burned. Then, you get to earn points for various things you do. I have been very bad about updating my stuff there, but I have to lose some weight, so I am renewing my commitment. I would go back to weight watchers, but I cannot afford it right now.

    Thanks for the warm welcome. This challenge is the only thing that got me back to where I should be....journaling to monitor my intake! I went back to fitday, and started there. And thank you for the link to sparkpeople, it looks like a great site. I used to go to WW but the funds are low, as we are saving for our December trip, and paying for graduate school.

    Slightly OT, did anyone see Oprah today w/Dr Oz? The woman who did the 90 day makeover looked fantastic, very motivating. I am on a mission to get rid of all hydrogenated oil products now. We certainly do not have as many as were featured, but my dd is addicted to goldfish crackers, and my dh LOVES Ritz. Time to get the health food alternatives I guess. So much for saving money!

    I joined fitday and completed my first day.. :) I ate 1374 calories today. I guess thats a little high, but this will make me really see what I'm putting me into my body.
