Login to SparkPeople

After having a couple of days of not logging in, I realized that rather than looking at logging in SP as a big task or something that requires a lot of time/effort just treat it like maybe your Facebook or email. When you check your emails, do a quick login to SP, blog/post/browse/read as per your convenience and whenever possible multiple times a day. When it seems like a small casual task you wont dread doing it.

And we all know how much being regular on SP helps!

Put the day's menu in SP in advance

I stick to my diet much easier when I input the day's menu at the start of the day and then follow it.

Use it!

It's simple really - just - USE IT! You joined the site so take advantage of the information, teams, advice. Log in, read the blogs, interact with other members, make friends. Most of all, though, USE THE ADVICE! Don't just read it - or put your settings to 'no mail' - the more reminders you get to stay on track the more likely you are to do so.

Sparking in the morning

I try to log into AP first thing in the morning, even if only to spin the wheel. Getting it in my head at the beginning of the day helps me to remember my goals all day long. I may not be 100% successful during the day, (who really is), but I find I am more mindful of my choices.

If you are an emotional eater stop before you hit the kitchen. Go sign on to SparkPeople instead. Read Motivator of the Day, Blog the emotional trigger or distract yourself with an article. This works! Replace that immediate impulse to put something in your mouth with getting on SparkPeople.

Keep the Spark People Page open!

I keep the Spark People page open on my computer all day long - it makes it convenient to track the foods as I need them - it also makes it a very VISIBLE reminder of what I am doing and WHY I am doing it. When I feel a craving or something come on, I can grab a quick glance at my goals and remind myself that it just ISN'T WORTH IT.

Map Your Route!

If you walk or run around your neighborhood for exercise, make sure to use the "Map Your Route" feature on the fitness tracking page to get the most accurate numbers for your log. Furthermore, click on the satellite view once in a while. I was surprised to find I was "jipping" myself about .2 mile on every walk because the route I was tracking on the map view wasn't quite right!

All Bites Count

I have been counting all my calories for several months. At first, it was a little time consuming but I put all my favorites in and it only takes me a few minutes a day now. I know it has helped because I've lost 12 lbs! It has helped made me more cognizant of what I'm eating and the nutritional values of the foods. It has helped keep me in check because I didn't want to write the candy bar I had so I just didn't eat it.
