I am trying to remember the name of a site I visited a week or two ago that I think was mentioned on here. It was the same sort of format as sparkpeople but not that one.

So everybody -- where do YOU like to hang out for your weight loss support, besides 3FC?

Thanks:)

nOWHERE!

I log my food and exercise on sparkpeople and still keep my graph on dietpower going but for support, it's 3fc bar none!

3FC hands down. The ONLY other weight loss anything site I visit is The Daily Plate. Nothing online has helped me like 3FC though.

Well, I happen to love it here so far and I'm here to stay! The only other weight loss related site I visit is the daily plate because I track my food there.

Sparkpeople is cool too, but I do a lot of my web surfing from my blackberry and that site is too wonky to navigate through mobile.

I've heard ivillage is decent, though I've never checked it out myself.

I try to surf through my blackberry, but it seems awful slow. :^:

Hey borntofly! I think the blackberry browsing speed depends on your carrier and their network. I have sprint and its either 3G or 4G and its on the EVDO network. Admittedly I have no clue what that all means exactly, other than its pretty fast. lol. ;-)

I have sprint too....but I feel like it's about as fast as when I had dialup. lol Oh well, it's better than not having it at all. I'm still pretty new to the blackberry, so I'm still getting use to it

Here is the only place I come to for support :) I'm trying to think of others that might have been mentioned but all I can come up with are those I've already seen posted above.

Hi!!! 3FC is absoutely #1 for me too, but I do have a folder in my favorites of all the weight loss stuff I visit. Some are recipe sites or whatever but I don't mind sharing them.

I LOVE hungry girl! I subscribe to a daily email and for awhile they were just nuisances to delete, but I actually read them and enjoy them.

WW has a pretty good website. I've heard it can be a bit clique-y but I just browse it and don't participate. I hadn't done the ivillage thing, but also heard some good things.

I don't even remember if these sites are even still up, some of them are pretty old. :) This is probably a good exercise to check them.

Is it www.dwlz.com?

I used to love Dotti's years ago when forums were in their infancy and I was dieting for the first time. I got so many tips and tricks from that site.

But ever since I discovered 3FC, the forums on DWLZ just seem like a pale ghost of the richness of the 3FC community. I still go to DWLZ when I'm bored and no threads have been updated here, but I never stay very long. There's just not enough content to keep me interested, something about the vibe there?

DWLZ does have a GREAT free online/downloadable restaurant guide for weight watchers though.

I used to go to Low Carb Friends but had to leave once I figured out that I need my carbs. :D

I track in fitday and I like it a lot except i have to add a lot of my own foods myself on the online version. I like all the little graphs and pie charts (<---nerd) but the thing I also like is you can track your mood, which I don't always enter, but when I have it has been very illuminating!

I used calorie king for the longest time to track my calories, carb, protein, fiber and exercise. I think it has a great database of foods and I have it downloaded on my desktop so I can just go in and look up a food anywhere. Has anyone else tried it? It's just software though, no support like here.

I used to be on LCF too! ;) I had a great time there but it just kind of fizzled.

I'm a faithful 3FC girl, no reason to go anywhere else! I feel like I know everyone and I can't wait to check in every day to see how everyone's doing! I really do give 3FC a lot of credit in my success so far, it's been awesome to chat with girls (and boys!) who've BEEN THERE! it's just not the same talking to someone dealing with losing 20 lbs LOL I know they have their struggles same as anyone else, but no one knows what it's like to be a fat chick except for another fat chick! or three ;)

I was a poster at DWLZ, until I found this place! It's sooo much better. Everyone at Dotti's is just looking for a way to be offended by anything, they're constantly closing threads over the most ridiculous things, it just seems that no one is allowed to have an opinion over there, and since I'm a pretty strong willed person, that didn't work out so well:D

They're nice, but I got sick of all of the political correctness reaaaaal fast.

I use fitday to track my weight goals and what I'm eating (though I find I have to make so many custom foods - it's annoying!). I think I have an account on Spark but I'm not sure. Most of my data I keep in an excel file on my lapop :D

But for moral support and chitchat, it's 3fc or nothing, baby! :hug:

I use sparkpeople to track and 3fc for everything else.
