    For me, the first thing I need to be is organised- if I don't know roughly what I'm eating a day or two in advance I fall apart. I also need to write everything down for one thing to help me keep track and another is for reference when having a bad week with no inspiration. I also couldn't be without my digital scales cos in my head 42g red.fat cheese is a lot bigger than it actually is:rolleyes: and I think I've just discovered my new favourite thing- Options white chocolate sachet. Absolute heaven!

    After doing this for some time now - I have to agree with you a paper food diary is a must for me. I plan my day backwards from what I will be having as my main meal in the evening as that helps me work out which kind of day to have. I need digital scales mostly for cheese and cereal.

    My essentials are a good attitude and staying away from bad influences (I'm looking at you Mum) if I'm not feeling too positive :D

    My notebook which is my food and exercise diary.
    My digital scales
    My digital camera, I have OH take my picture every month so I can hopefully see the difference
    My SW book and magazines and my new EE cookbook!
    And this forum, for all the support, both tickings off when I need them and encouragement and just friendship.

    Scales, and writing everything down.

    If I write it down I lose, if I don't I don't!
