Hi,
I loved to be friends. I sent you a friend request. If you accept it would be my first. I haven't been brave enough to share my calorie counter with others. :)

I've used My Fitness Pal for several years off and on, and I highly recommend it as a weight-loss tool. I'm JoThrive at My Fitness Pal.

I am not on there, but I have started blogging on my journey. Really looking for some support. I post every Friday about what I have done.
If you have a google account I'd love to hear your input on my blog. http://africaboundchick.blogspot.com/

Is this any different from fitday? Fitday logs activities as well as calories and even measurements. If it wasn't for FITDAY I wouldn't even know how many calories I needed, what nutrients I was and wasn't getting, and wouldn't have even realized that working out isn't the only way to burn calories (or at least a decent amount of them).

I love technology...

I used Fitday for several years, then I switched to My Fitness Pal. Actually I like MFP a lot better than Fitday, it just works better for me.

There are several other places out there that are helps in tracking food and exercise. I suggest that anyone interested try several sites and decide which one is best suited for their particular needs :wave:

Thanks Jo Jo

I think... if I get off track, lose interest, or feel down, I'll check it out. I'm weird in the way that I need to change things and get involved in new things to keep at it. I have always lost interest in the past, so when it happens again, I'll join more sites. ><

brown I did fatsecret first on my blackberry, I didn't know it was on android also and asked my friends on another thread which one they used. I was pointed toward myfitnesspal and stayed there, I like it. I have never looked at anyone's complete layout. I guess you could sign up them delete it if it shows TMI. There isn't any personal personal stuff on there if that makes sense :)

Brown, you control how much information people can see. If you want to show your friends your weight and other info it is completely up to you. It's possible to make your food diary private, public or only viewable by friends.

thank you for this thread!

I've been looking at several versions of this site, and many of them are faulty or you have to add/customize so much of it yourself that it doesn't make sense to really use it...even livestrong had incorrect nutrition info for what I needed. :wave:
