Charting your food intake is a good way to track your weight loss progress.

Do you use a food journal? How about an online journal?

How has using a journal helped you in your weight loss journey?

If you don't use a journal, how do you track the amount of food or calories you consume daily?

 I've never used a journal to track my eating or workout habits.  I wonder if it would help me any.  It is worth a try.

I've tried a couple times online journaling but I could never make it part of my daily routine. I wonder if physically writing it on paper would help me to realize what and how much Iat. It's def worth a try bc I NEED to do something that is going to aid my efforts of losing this final baby weight.

I use a food & exercise tracker from Sparkpeople.com.

I've never had weight loss success like I've had in the past few months using their tracker. It makes calorie counting a no brainer!
