Needing of encouragement and support
I have learned that for me, counting calories keeps things real. By counting calories, I do or kid myself thinking I am doing worse or better than I actually am. I try to make healthy choices but know that I can have too much of a good thing.

weigh everyday
We are all different. We need to do what works for us. I personally do best when I weigh daily. Otherwise I convince myself that I am doing better or worse than I actually am. I expect my weight to fluctuate depending on my activity level, water retention, amount of sleep I get and other things. My best measurement is really my tracking.
