My tip is to keep a food diary! Yes, it helped my and there are many free ones out there these days. I used this one : My Calorie Counter At first I was so detailed, tracking everything, but then got a little lax after I dropped quite a few lbs. For example, I didn't keep track on the weekends. When using a diary and checking the labels, you can mentally calculate the approximate caloric intake. But it sure helps to get you started (or re-started in my case!)
So let's do it together starting today!
Me before my weight loss!
me now, but still need to loose a few!
