Hi,

I decided I needed to track my calories because nothing else was helping. Boy, I didn't realize how many calories I ate in one day!! Holy cow! I think this is really going to help me to actually see what I'm eating (to put everything in without lying to myself) and what I need to stop eating.

Thanks!
Natalie

    It's an eye opener, isn't it?? I hadn't seen the scale move in a year despite cardio 5x/wk for an hour. It wasn't until I started MFP that I realized how much I was eating and how many EMPTY calories! Don't blow it off and "not bother" putting in that bite here or that bite there. I think someone said the average bite is around 20-25 calories--that can add up to a lot over the day!

    Welcome and I hope MFP helps you with your goals!

    Same here Natalie. I thought I was doing so well eating reasonable, healthy and not too much plus exercise. Didn't loose any weight, so I decided something has to give. Since I count my calories I know that I still ate to much.

    You'll love MFP
