for your food journalling. I know a lot of women here use it. I'm one of them and I really like it. It's kind of a pain at first but once you enter in most of your "custom foods" that aren't already in the program, it's easy to just enter in your meals for the day and have it calculate calories, fat, protein,and carbs for you.
I also really like the elliptical. It does get easier (and then of course you up the level or time so it's hard again, but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it). I could only do about 20 minutes at a time when I first started using it and now I do 2 30-minute sessions. I'd like to do an hour of intervals in one session but I need a break inbetween the two 30-minute sets right now. Keep with it! 7 pounds lost is still 7 pounds you never have to see again if you stick with it.
