I've decided to try to add some pictures for visual interest. So here's the first one: my trusty food journal. I used up all the pages! One down, many to go. I know everyone says it, but tracking what I eat is the number one best way for me to lose weight. Obviously it's part of a multilayered approach, but if I'm not tracking, probably nothing else is going right.
This milestone is significant because in the fall of 2007 I started running and tracking what I ate in a Moleskine and lost about 13 pounds. It felt awesome. And then, after I filled up the first book, the holidays hit, my tracking waned, and fast-forward to an almost 30 pound weight gain. This time I will fill out the second book faithfully.
