As a present to myself, I plan to buy a FitBit Flex. I thought it was super neat that they are compatible with MyFitnessPal and so I started counting my calories in addition to tracking my points. When I get my FitBit Flex, I will be all adapted to MyFitnessPal. I thought it would be good to also monitor my sodium intake.
Most of the time, my points and my calories are pretty in sync. However, I eat 0 point fruit for snacks which add up to quite a few calories in MyFitnessPal. It gives me the impulse to limit my calories to meet that goal, which occasionally means I'm leaving 3-7 points on the table.
I know a few other ladies track points and monitor calories. Do you use all your points, calorie limit be damned, or do you find that limiting your calories leaves points on the table? And have you been successful losing weight this way? I have been very successful with WW and have completely re-learned how to eat, portion sizes, geez, everything! But I find myself becoming a slave to MyFitnessPal.
