a different kind of food journal

Coming off a crappy food eating binge I have decided to make a list of foods that aren't really as yummy as they seem to be in my mind. These are the same foods that are so appealing while I am dieting , the ones that make me want to go over my points.
 So I created a file on my computer that I will write all that info down so that when the craving hits I can review. I can remember how rubbery chicken mcnuggets are and how boxed shells and cheese is pretty tasteless. Homemade tastes so much better. 

On a different note I also purchased some frozen dinners, which I plan on using for emergencies only. I will eat those on the nights that I want to order pizza because I am too tired to cook anything. Not the best thing to eat but much better than copious amounts of greasy (delicious) pizza. They last a long time so I don't have to worry about replacing them regularly, so they are basically a dinner first aid kit. 

I am getting ready!! Tomorrow is the day! Yay!

i've tried that too. a really good online food journal is called
it's free and pretty easy to use. once you log in everything it only takes about 5 minutes a day. it also lets me log my exercise (output) which is something i was unable to do on my computer. good luck!
