I have been "dieting" for about 4 months and have lost around 25 pounds. I was doing weight watchers online and to help out with my budget, I canceled my subscription. There was nothing wrong with the WW way, I just dropped it to save about 20$ a month. I lost 20 pounds with WW and I highly recommend it.
Since I was trying to be frugal, I decided to look around for a free calorie tracker that I could use with my iPhone. A friend told me about My Fitness Pal and I am LOVING it!
You can also add friends who are using it online! You can send each other messages and see how everyone is doing. So if any of you have a username let me know and we will friend on that!
The greatest thing about this program is they have EVERYTHING in their database of food! I have yet to enter something that I was not able to find. And a really cool feature is that you can scan a bar code on something and it automatically enters it for you. I LOVE TECHNOLOGY!
I really, really am trying to get back into the diet thing. I kind of fell of the wagon when things started getting so busy in my life. But I am committed to hoping back onto that horse..... Cruise to the Bahamas in two months is my motivation!
Also, I am really want to get going back to Zumba. If you have never tried it, you must! I loved going when I used to and it is an AMAZING workout. I would usually burn about 600 calories in the hour class. It is fun and upbeat. And a lot of instructors use songs that you hear on the radio and they really pump you up. I have 20 days of school left and I will be back in that dance studio Zumba-ing my butt off by then! I have the set of DVDs at home but they're not as good. It is so much easier to wuss out half way through and quit when you are doing it by yourself.
Do y'all have any suggestion how to get back moving and in the swing of things? I am in desperate need of thin-spiration!
