Hello and welcome, HMJ! I hope you'll find Fitday to be just what you're looking for!
In addition to logging your food/activities, I hope you'll take a peek at this thread: 7 Day Motivational Thread starting May 13: Getting Our Groove Back
. We start a new one every Monday (so a new one will start up tomorrow). People post up the things they, specifically, would like to work on during the week. Then, during the week, we post updates on how we're doing. Successes, challenges, questions, and just general, friendly chatter and encouragement. If that sort of thing is of interest to you, I hope you'll consider joining us!
In any event, good luck to you!
Edit: Here is the new thread for this week ---> 7 Day Motivational Thread starting May 20 - Stay Strong!
