Hey everyone. Glad a few of us are losing weight already! I got a FitBit for xmas, it pretty much tracks your activity level for the day and it really is motivating me to move more. I was not moving to pathetic levels! So I decided to make sure I'm walking more, I'm trying to get at least 6km in a day which usually has me burning about 2200 calories a day. I'm trying to lose my weight slowly (1/2 pound a week) so I've up my calories to 1700 a day. Surprisingly since New Years I've already lost a pound. I hope it continues.
NewKate2014- I use MFP to track my calories so I guess it's a food journal. I love it because it really keeps my portions in check.
