I like the point about reducing the number of goals you have...it's good to have goals, but sticking to just a few is eastest to keep track of and achieve. More about The Minimalist Principle: Omit Needless Things

Good to hear Weightwatchers has been working for you Tinks.
I try to eat well without too much saturated fats and sugar and I exercise 6 days a week...and then allow myself a "treat day" once per week....on the treat day I don't exercise and I can eat whatever I want...usually I have been craving for something like whipped cream or pizza...and I find that my system works really well. I think mentally it is good to let your guard down for 1 day in 7 so you don't feel deprived and you don't feel like you're on a perpetual "diet".
The only issue I have found is that sometimes my 1 day in 7 turns into 2 days in 7...or three...and also I tend to binge on my "treat" days because I want to cram in as much of the good stuff as I can before having to go back to the strict diet and exercise regime.
I think I can learn from Tom Venuto's 8 points..especially his Reasons 4 and 6 regarding accountability and planning...I will definitely start to log my "treat" days and what I eat on those days to keep an objective record...which I'm sure will help me to keep my treat days to only once per week and not to binge so much and over-eat on those days.
Anyway, by and large this system works well for me...I keep my weight under control and remain fit, healthy and active...and I don't "count calories" or measure every single thing I eat. It's more about knowing basic healthy eating guidlines and trying to stick to the broad principles, as Tom Venuto says.
By the way, I have been doing this system for many years now, and have found it really works well..so would recommend it to others who struggle with their weight. As Tom Venuto says, it's not about the minutae of your plan and being on a "diet", it's about living by basic principles and sticking to them.

I would add #21..."write down five key words that are meaningful to you and motivate and inspire you, put them on a little card, and keep the card in your socks and undies drawer...which means you will see them at least once each and every day (I hope!)...
The words can be anything at all that means something to you...an attribute, a name, a role model, a goal etc etc.
It really works.
My own personal card says..."Honour, Grandad, 100kgs, Smile, Arnie"....words that all inspire and motivate me because of the things and meanings they represent to me personally.

I find that I get all the nutrition I need without supplementation simply by eating a complete and balanced diet...
Cheese toasties for breakfast...plenty of fibre and calcium.
Meat pie and tomato sauce for lunch...full of iron and lycopene.
Super Supreme pizza for dinner...that's 5 veges on the toppings for all the required vitamins.
Plus, don't forget to keep your fluids up...at least 2 pints a day ;) More about Vitamins

I reckon that how you serve wine says a lot about who you are as a person and your approach to life:
A. Grab the nearest bottle, pop the cork and swill it down.
B. Read the label before selecting a bottle, ease the cork out, pour into a tall-stem glass and sip.
C. Have your own wine cellar, know the history of grape-growing in France, and swirl, sniff and/or spit the wine before drinking.
Think about it. Whether you are A, B or C...I bet you have a similar approach to life (you can fill in the blanks of the metaphor yourself...) ;)
