Hello everyone! I am not sure if everyone here is counting calories or if they do food journals. I did find a GREAT free app for that. It is called MyFitnessPal. I LOVE this app. It has helped with my eating tremendously. It has also helped me see how many calories I eat a day. It even logs how much transfats, sodium, chloresterol, carbs, protein. So I started counting calories because of this app.

You can log your food into the app, all you do is search it, scan in stuff on the barcodes or you can add in a food if its not in there. Its easy to because it has restaurants in there as well. I tend to eat out at least once a week.

If you are to busy to log in but you have a meal plan set for the day you can log in your whole days worth at one time, even the next days.

The BEST part about this app for me, is you can also log in your exercises. If you run, shovel snow, swim, walk, ride a bike its in there and it will tell you how many calories you burned. I love this app and wanted to share just in case anyone was interested in this. I thought counting calories was hard to do but with this app I can do it and actually enjoy doing it.

Since starting in the last 30 days I have lost a total of 10lbs which for me is amazing because I gained 9lbs

So I thought I would share for anyone who enjoys this and may need a little boost.

There's quite a few girls here that use that. There is also loseit.com that is similar. I personally found lose it easier to use and liked it better, but both work well. I loved it also and I lost almost 30 pounds by using it. I have since joined Weight Watchers online, but it worked great for that first almost 30.

Good luck in your continued goals!!

I am also on MFP! I actually have it set as my homepage on my computer so that every time I sit down to get on the internet I am reminded to log what I eat or my exercise. I also have it on my phone for when I am on the road (or if DH is on the computer).

I'm DanceGirl0309 over there.

Nice, I enjoy this. I had a bad 2 weeks with it but I am happy with the results thus far.

Today I am getting back into working out regularly. AF took control this week. But it works out because I can change up my routine.

I love MFP! I am hoping to use it throughout this pregnancy to not gain as much as I did with Dd.

Thank you Kiliki for my beautiful siggy!
