Become an accountant. Select tools to help you track throughout the day

Apps, food and restaurant databases, personal activity tracking tools (like Fitbit accelometers and inexpensive pedometers) provide current and objective info to help you make wise decisions.  Some options are free, while others charge a fee.  Look at the pros and cons of each as they relate to you, then make your decision.

Be in control. Develop skills.

Menu planning, grocery shopping, learning to interpret package labels, cooking and eating-on-the go strategies will let you know exactly what is in that meal and how it fits within your plan.  Recognize and address your road blocks.

There is strength in numbers.

Develop a social support structure.  This can be a family member, friend, or an in-person or online community support group as is offered by Weight Watchers.
