Well, I have had my A-ha moment (with apologies to Oprah)!!

I have been working on dieting and exercising, and had lost 6.5 pounds. Then I hit what seemed like a plateau....no weight loss for several days, although I have been exercising and eating right. In actuality, I am pretty sure I hit COMPLACENCY, not a plateau. After carefully logging everything that I ate for a couple days, and continuing the exercise program I lost 1.5 pounds! I think I was actually taking an extra bite here and there and not paying enough attention to those sneaky extra bites.

This is a new experience for me! I am savoring the good choices I made, and looking forward to more good choices!! Yay Me!!

    That happens, sometimes you just have to mix it up. You can do this!! Keep up the great loss.

    I always have success when I log everything I eat. On some days I don't even get everything into my tracker until the evening, so I don't know how many calories I've had until after I've eaten them all, but I never seem to go over when I know I am going to log them--I'm always on the low to middle part of my calorie range. I think just knowing that I am going to write it down makes me more accountable. If I have to record it I am more conscientious about portion sizes, too, since I need to know how much I ate in order to log it. Congrats on learning what works for you!
