Many of us have phones that can access the web and or apps that connect us to spark people. USE THEM! i've found that i can track my food more efficiently when i have an easy portable way to do so. it's helped me to break off my plateau by tracking my food. 2 birds with 1 stone.
the 'best' phones for this are Android or Iphone as they have app capability, but other internet ready/able phones can do it too.

I love playing table tennis (ping pong) so I joined a table tennis club and I play 2 times per week. I used to play to win and my whole effort was towards wining each game, wanting to win all the time took away from enjoying the game and my fellow players were my adversaries. Now I just play for having fun and putting all my effort into having fun and making sure that the people I play with also having fun.
My adversaries became my friends and I look forward each week to play with them. I have more fun and I enjoy the game much, much better.
I have a notebook in Evernote with a separate note for each restaurant I visit and what the best options are for my diet plan in each. I don't write down the "best options" that I wouldn't like either - just what I'd actually order. With my smart phone, I have that custom reference to keep me on track.
Having a plan is half the battle, having it HANDY is the other half.
my rule of thumb, if i havent used it in 6 months, no matter what it is (clothes, makeup, etc) i throw it out or donate it...it keeps me from having excess stuff that i havent used in 5 years cluttering up for no reason...i figure if i havent used it in 6 months, i dont need it and its taking up space...im a neat freak though :)
