We pretty much rock livestrong.com

That is the motivation that helped me loose the 35ish lbs for our wedding last September...


LIVESTRONG.COM
Dare to Change Your Life


We (the hubs & I) use both the internet and the phone aps to track our food intake and check our weight progress. I am {thanks dad} a task-master! I LOVE to-do lists, charts, calendars... anything that helps me stay on track and see results. I think that is one of the main reasons this site worked so well for me. Like I mentioned above I lost about 35 lbs from Jan'09-Sept 09' {the bulk during my cult following of the 20/20 challenge @ Ash is Fit from March to August}. Then... we got hitched. And I got fat. boo. I can't really say that I worked hard at staying little...I gained about 7 lbs on our 7 day cruise...then the "holidays" got the best of me. But... I'm back on the livestrong track now. :)

Here are a couple of my favorite things about it.


{It has weight trackers to let you see your progress... get my point.}



{Keeps track of everything you eat... this is what I had today}
and
{keeps track of the week too... below}



Don't email me and tell me I'm not eating enough calories...I'm not working out.
I'm lazy.
I'm jumpstarting.
Be cool.

looks like a good tool! me and my friend just started this week being accountability partners and reporting what we ate to each other.. it's working so much greater than any other attempt at calorie counting :)

I gained 30+ lbs after I got married. I had lost the weight abotu 3 years before I got married and had kept it off. Married life has been bad for my eating habits!!! I am definetly going to try this out. Thanks so much for posting!

Livestrong sounds awesome! I do sparkpeople, which is similar! For me it's good to see the cold hard facts of what I'm doing / eating!
