Food Diary - Day 1

Food diaries are a great way to keep track of what you're eating and keeps you honest about what you're consuming and how much you're consuming. I've been resisting FOREVER actually keeping a food diary. I thought it was hokey and unnecessary but it turns out it is a very handy way to keep me on track with attaining my goal of 25 - 30 grams of fiber a day and ultimately getting down to 140 pounds.

So I will keep a daily food diary until I reach my goal weight. Feel free to comment. Talk about keeping it honest...with the whole world watching and all.
