    Great job! You've done something really good for yourself!

    I remember reading some time back that the people in Colorado are among the healthiest in the US. Don't remember if an explanation was provided, but there are certainly fewer overweight people to be seen than here in South Carolina, which has a pretty unhealthy population compared with many other states.

    I'm so happy for you! Interesting about Colorado. What is it about this cool state that helped you discover calorie counting? Were the residents generally healthier?

    Well at least the town I live in Fort Collins, everyone seems to be living the healthy life style! This guy at my work lost over 100 pounds by counting calories. I didn't believe him until he showed me his before pictures. Trust me when I say I have tried A LOT of different diets, was taking fat burning pills and everything under the sun. I actually just discovered MFP about a month and a half ago, I was writing everything down before lol a lot of work.

    Have you started using the barcode scanner to enter stuff yet??? Your mind will be blown.

    Great job on getting your health under control!!! that's a great NSV!
    Yep! I'm still amazed at all the stuff its able to read! And thanks! :)
