Having been successful using Spark People, I want to encourage others.

This is what works for me:
1. Planning all the food I'll eat for the day (including snacks and healthful items such as fruit, veggies, and nuts), adding up the calories and subtracting where necessary to stay within my calorie limits.
2. Carrying a pre-measured bottle or glass of water with me all day and refilling.
3. I'm very competitive so I try to score the maximum Spark points for cardio (2 hours) each day. Sometimes THAT motivates me more than knowing exercise is good for me!
4. Logging into Spark People DAILY and reading the Nutrition, Health, and Motivation articles to remind me what is TRULY important - my health. I also like to read other people's blogs for encouragement.
5. Staying away from chips and cookies and cakes as much as possible.
6. Brushing my teeth RIGHT after dinner and not eating for the rest of the day.
7. When my clothes fit comfortably I know I'm on track. When they start getting snug I know I am eating too much.
