Fitday keeps me on the straight and narrow!
 
I have used fitday every day since 2007, entering anything I've eaten because I want to stay slim as I enter middle age. That is, I used it religiously until I made the mistake of stopping last late spring/summer while I was going through a stressful period buying a house.

For a few months I engaged in lots of "comfort" eating (cake, ice cream, etc.) to "help myself" (to lots of junk food!) through. It sure was an uncomfortable and rude awakening when I stepped on the scale and saw I gained, not kidding, 8 pounds in just under three months! :eek:

I've learned from fitday that everything counts and it all adds up quickly, and just because you aren't counting your body doesn't forget one single calorie! :rolleyes:

Back in the day people had to use calories books or silly "As Seen on TV" digital calorie counters if they wanted to keep track. I love fitday and can say it has been a success for me with keeping me honest! :) It's free and easy and I'm grateful for it!

How Ironic...
 
Wow! It was as if I were reading a post of mine. I lost 40 pounds in about six months last year. Around Thanksgiving last year, I started having a few cheat meals here and there. That turned into two cheat months. To make you feel better, I put on 16 pounds in two months (!). You are so right--everything counts and it certainly does add up quickly. I'm happy to say that I'm back on the wagon and making progress again.

:D LOL!! I was using calorie books and a pad of paper until about a month ago. I have been a member of FitDay for years but found it cumbersome and didn't feel as in control before (I wanted to figure my Exact calories). Well I got a laptop so it's easy to take it to the kitchen to enter my foods and realized the calories in FitDay were pretty accurate; plus I got tired of calculations. I have really become a fan of the reports. It just makes this whole thing a bit more interesting to me. Another bonus is I can enter food at home and modify it at work. No more trying to remember how many calories I wrote down at home. Plus I can enter that office doughnut before eating it and usually decide it just isn't worth it.

I'm really enjoying watching and seeing what I'm eating and keeping a record you can also keep track if a day when you do not lose weight to look back and see why or what have you done differently to not see a change.

Yes, I love entering foods I think I really want to eat (but don't need) so I can see the damage and then decide if I realllly want to eat them. :)

I've been using my fitday data from the last few years to analyze my weight and there is definitely a direct correlation between intake and weight gain and NOT simply turning 40. :)
