I have tried so many different things: nutri systems (worked, but they always substituted icky food), Jenny Craig, weight watchers, calorie counting, this K system at an on the job gym, Atkins, etc... And I know one thing, I hate counting and tracking. I guess I know two things, I also have to track if I stand a chance at succeeding.
So, currently I'm using an online service called daily burn. I like them because there is a free version, there is a social networking aspect and you can track work outs. I personally upgraded, but was able to find a 20% discount code online. I think my favorite thing about this service verses others is with the upgrade I can track sodium, sugar, fiber, cholesterol, etc.. so I can set more specific goals. One of those is to eat less sugar and sodium because I think those are the two that mess with me the most in terms of cravings and mood. Also, I want to eat a lower carb diet because I'm fairly certain I have a low metabolism and it's interesting to see where carbs come from out of the foods I eat. These are all things that are behind the scenes in these other programs.
Anyway, I'm just starting again on my weight loss journey, daily burn has helped me before. I'm hoping the combination of this visibility into what I eat, and the support of people to understand here on 3fc, this will be it, for good, for ever and ever!!
