SeeMyFeet- I'd say what you're doing is exercising!! I know I'd count it as it at least. I definitely focused on dropping weight before exercising as well. I originally lost 40 pounds in 6 months on diet alone. I started exercising and lost nothing over the course of 2 months. It really discouraged me so I figured I'd go back to just diet until I was more comfortable at my weight and I am now so that's why I'm starting to exercise again.

Llilith- Hello and welcome! This group is definitely active and it helps me stay accountable. Like quite a few people on here I use MFP and have for just over a year now. I love it but I've heard great things about Loseit too. I think it's all about finding what works for you.

I want to thank everyone in here who have added me on MFP. I know it's going to make me much more accountable as you guys can actually see what I'm eating. I'm really liking the Fitbit and I know it'll take me a bit to get used to it.

CalCounter1003- what I've started doing is any exercise that the fitbit won't count, aka spinning I'll input into MFP. If it is a walking or running based activity I'll log it but put it in with 1 calorie so I can keep track of minutes but not have it count twice, once from FB and once from MFP. I don't know if that's how I'm supposed to do it but it makes sense to me. As I said it's going to take a bit to figure out all the kinks.

skelley331- what you said about fitbit makes sense. And I think taking off a couple days or even a week or two isn't going to ruin your diet. It took a lot longer than a week to gain all the weight originally right?

And for what I came here for...I ended yesterday at 1587. Which is great and I managed to avoid most of the sweets in the house which is even better.
