Day 10 - Happy Tracking

Day 10 of 31 Days of Happy


Happy Tracking.


Back in April, I was introduced to My Fitness Pal.  It's a FREE website that you can use to track your food intake for the day, exercise, and set weight loss goals.  You also set up a profile, so you can sort of social network with friends (or strangers) along the journey.  It's SUPER easy to use.  It even lets you know when they haven't logged on for awhile because they need "encouragement" which is code for "they've fallen off the wagon"  I know this, personally.  


It does not show them what you weigh.  I know you're all thinking it.   Only how much you want to lose (if you choose to share.)  It's been completely eye opening for me.  I've lost 15 pounds since April, and have four more to go...how on earth it can be SO HARD to lose four pounds, I will never understand.   


Also, just so you know some more useless information about me, I was eating more than twice the recommended calories for myself every. single. day.  And the sugar...about 4-5 times the amount I needed.  Yep, that bad.


I love myfitnesspal.  


And, if you decide to join it, and want a friend, I'd be happy to stalk have you.  Just email me and I'll give you my profile name.  


lifeintheparsonage@gmail.com  It's my blog name, all smashed together with  gmail at the end...in case you didn't notice.

  1. I've never heard of that website before. I'll have to check it out. I've lost 40 pounds, but have about 25 more to go, and I've kind of plateaued lately.
