    Question Keeping personal stats

    Hi!

    A quick question, have you ever tried to track personal stats to get motivated? Tracking things like chocolate bars (or something similar) eaten in a week or so? And if you have, what works best for you to track your data? What tool do you use? Your help would be greatly appreciated

    I track everything... every thing I eat, every bit of exercise I do, how many calories I burn, what the change on calories is when I lose weight. I use myfitnesspal to track calories and exercise, but use a diary to put more info in and I have an excel spreadsheet (yes I am a total geek) that I use to track my weight loss and inch loses.

    I find being able to see all that info really keeps me motivated, I am trying not to set goals as if I don't hit them I get a bit pee'ed off and that can make me cheat but its good to look at the info I have tracked and see the weight coming off, knowing that a 1lb loss might be annoying when Ive been extra good, but then I will have a really big loss out of the blue to make up for all the smaller ones, that helps me stay motivated when I have a week or two at 1lb loses.

    I track every single thing I eat! When I didn't count my calories, I'd be constantly eating anything I wanted because I didn't have to see on an app how much I'd wasted on chocolate/crisps/sweets. Now I'm tracking, I can limit myself and only eat healthy most days. If I do fancy some chocolate, I will restrict the pieces I have as I find anything more as a waste of calories.
