Wrist fitness trackers ?
I have been considering getting a fitness/sleep tracker. Fitbit and Jawbone UP seem to be the ones I see around. Wondered if folks on here are using those, or others, and what the pros and cons are of each. (I did see there was a specific fitbit topic already started - but as I'm not committed to one brand or another, I thought I should start a new thread.) Thanks for any advise/insight.

Bowel Movements
Lots and lots of water, drank throught the day. Every day. This is the most important but somehow it ends up being the hardest to accomplish.. And a fiber supplement everyday, whether it be the powder you mix with water, a fiber bar, or they have fiber gummies! Good luck.

Cheese or Chocolate?
Chocolate. Especially dark chocolate. I don't eat much of it, but when I do... to nibble slowly and enjoy the taste as it melts in my mouth... definately chocolate!
Have a great day!

Ready to lose 15 pounds.
A tip that is helping me... shop only on the outside of the grocery store. Its where the healthiest foods are! Once you venture into the aisles, you hit all kinds of processed foods that are higher in calories and lower in nutrition. Your points (Or calories) go further if you are eating natural foods! Good luck.

There really is no secret to weight loss
To Adr58.

You said: "I reckon it's 50% psychology (determination and drive); 25% plan (calorie planning / counting) and 25% execution."

I couldn't agree more! I've tried to lose weight before, and the main difference between then and now is that I'm no longer "trying" but instead I made up my mind to "do". I am determined, I am driven. Not succeeding is NOT AN OPTION.
