Hi Michelle. I see that you're new here. Welcome aboard.
I know that jotting down all that you consume is tedious. I've been doing it for almost two years. However, it gets easier pretty quickly - just give it a few weeks and you'll see.
...and TRUST ME - it's all worth it. Smile

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

I agree, I've been here for a year and this is the longest I've ever managed to have a continuous weight loss. Recording everything keeps you aware and accountable for what you eat. Also makes it easier to fine tune your diet to make it more effective. I found using the favorite meals and cook book made it easier. Hang in there and it will get easier.

I thought that recording my eating and exercise was hard at first, but it was so helpful to see what changes I needed to make with my eating habits. Now, after a year I'm almost addicted to recording. Sure, I have my days (usually the weekends) that I don't record, sometimes you're just not around a computer, and I'm not tech literate, so I don't use my phone for recording. For me, like a lot of people, it's a goal to stay at or below my RDI, and being able to record what I'm going to eat, or have eaten, for the day really helps me make better choices and stay motivated.
Goals for 2015:
Start a running program
Sign up & complete a 5K- Done
Get a bike and use it!

It becomes habit or second nature to know the amounts, serving sizes, etc after a while. IE, it gets easier. Also your appetite eventually subsides or gets more normal, and it also leads to it being easier. That being said, logging and tracking is essential in my opinion, and I still do it.

Bottom line is, starting is the hard part! It does get easier!

Good luck!

Coffee good for weight loss?
I have been a coffee drinker for years. I still put on the weight so I really do no think it helps weight loss unless you drink too much and it makes you sick.
