I love calorie counting! I was ready to start WW but though I'd give calorie counting a try first because...well...it's free! LOL!
It is helpful doing it together, isn't it? My husband joined me about a month into my own journey and it has been nice encouraging each other. He's responsible for his own extra 100 calories at each meal that he gets over me.
I give him a 200 calorie meal and he has to figure out his other calories. LOL! It's just not fair!
