    Tracking is great , as long you don't obsess yourself, But:
    Do you track everything? Every day? Or do you skip higher calorie times?
    Now I do, because of the challenge, because I went on vacay and gaing weight (sangrias), I do not skip , and yes every day task until at least I loose the extra grams.

    Do you weigh your food or eyeball it or both?
    I do both but I have scale, and kitchen tools ( needed)

    Do you look at your trends and/or averages?
    Really? I never thought about that????????? :*

    What is the best thing about tracking for you?
    MMMMMMMMM, perhaps so I don't eat that much? consciousness :|

    What is the thing you are working on at the moment re: tracking?

    Do you track everything? Every day? Or do you skip higher calorie times?
    I mostly track everything. I also very rarely ate out even BEFORE covid .... so when we did at a restaurant I would look up the menu ahead of time and work my day around that. Only for very rare home-cooked Special Event meals (where I am not hostess ) has this been completely problematic. I might put in a "i have no idea, but really high" Quick-Add-Calories.

    Do you weigh your food or eyeball it or both?
    I weigh pretty much everything. Some standard items (like my glass of almond milk at supper or my packaged at home into muffin-cups mashed sweet potatos) get a default entry, but meat, sliced-by me bread, shredded cheese, popcorn kernels ... all that kind of thing gets weighed.

    Was using measuring cups compared with package labels at first in MFP ... HONESTLY thought I was tracking popping corn by the 1/3 cup correctly .... then I got a digital scale and WOW! 50 gm was significantly LESS!

    Do you look at your trends and/or averages?
    Haven't been to date. I JUST NOW discovered where / how to log my daily weigh-in (a strong daily habit) into my Fitbit app in order to discover weight-trend line.

    What is the best thing about tracking for you?
    I get to play "Go For The Green" every morning .... (play with pre-logging entries to get as close to "1 calorie still available - before any exercise" as possible) always variable, as things like my morning toast (cut off the home made loaf) is never the same twice in a row.

    What is the thing you are working on at the moment re: tracking?
    It's not with the tracking-on-MFP per se ... I JUST NOW discovered where / how to log my daily weigh-in (a strong daily habit) into my Fitbit app in order to discover weight-trend line.

    Love love and love this opener @MadisonMolly2017 have me goosebumps from all the inspiration. He he!! So pumped to come back and read all the ways u guys track as tracking honestly is my biggest struggle and my number 1 focus at present... I hve been committed in Dec and Jan to track all the taste years wen cooking and bite of hubby and bubs food. This put me out of the winners circle this month but at least I am being honest and hoping to redeem my self this month! Xo

    @donna25trinity
    Thank you !
    It’s totally worth tracking honestly. Mostly because it fosters self-honesty which is a much-needed skill on this journey!

    You rock!
