    Just wondered if everyone writes EVERYTHING down to keep track of their points.

    This past week (as you probably know) I havent officially been counting points but old habits die hard and Ive been doing it mentally most nights.

    Whats really amazed me is how much I forget. I think Ive done really well then suddenly remember something I didnt factor in.

    Just made me realise how crucial keeping close tabs on things is.

    I write everything down!!! I have to!!

    But...over the last week or so I haven't!! I've been so naughty and not worrying about pointing foods, which isn't good for me!!

    I'm calorie counting not WW but yes I write it all down, so easy to lose track and have extra bits if you don't!

    Your sooo right its my big downfall, I bought a little notebook today and its going everywhere with me so I can start really focusing on every single thing that I put into my mouth because I have started to ''FORGET'' things like spreads and ketchup etc so your right it will make a big difference xx

    snap me to! ... i have to write everything down ... first thing in the morning i flick the kettle on and i get my journal and write everything for that day and add it up! .. then if i have points left i plan my snacks! and then work them into that day :) .. If i didnt count i would definatly be failing

    hiya - think writing it down is key to the success of calorie / point counting....it is sooooo easy to forget about stuff otherwise.....
