Journaling can help you to know where you are and where you are coming from. It helps you to see what you may have done to affect your program and how to correct yourself to get back on track. Journaling is a great way to express yourself, review your actions, and motivate yourself on your journey.
It is interesting that journal and journey have the same beginning. That in itself is something to consider.

I love to write and anybody who knows me knows I keep many journals. One I keep is called a Humour Journal, another a Blessings Journal and a Happy Journal. They sound similar but are different. When I am feeling down I pick up one of these and flip through my entries and it picks my mood up.
Humour Journal is where you write things that make you laugh; Blessings is where you write down ALL you can think of you are blessed with; Happy Journal is a place to write down the thinngs, people etc., that cause happiness. Writing them down preserves the memory & lifts you when you feel down.
I feel that the most important part of my diet is.......
Keeping a food journal!!
I started my diet in 2/09 with WW and have lost 33 lbs since then. It may not seem like much, but I can't do much physical exercise due to various arthritic and nerve damage. The food journal is what keeps me going. When I don't track, I don't lose. It makes me aware of what I put in my mouth.
