Calorie Counters

Wow have I ever been slacking in the Works For Me Wednesday posts....what can I say Wednesday is a busy day for me but that's really no excuse so alas here is a post about what works for me....

Right after I had my daughter I continued to eat like I was still pregnant and put on more weight than I did when I was pregnant. It wasn't until I saw a picture of myself that I realized I had to do something. I am so not one for starving myself on a lettuce diet or even really one for paying attention to or exerting myself for exercise however I found the one thing that I could do is make a conscious effort to see what I was putting into my body every day. I decided to become a calorie counter. There are several sites out there that will track your calories for you but my two favorite are and I love that they have calorie counts for fast food restaurants and major chains. I especially love that will give you a grade every day based on what you consumed for that particular day. With the help of these sites and making the effort to see what I was inhaling eating I was able to lose all my after baby weight and then some and get to a weight that I was happy with. And that's what works for me. How about you, have something to share? If so head over to Kristen's to do so and while you're there take the time to see what works for others!!

I checked out 411fit, and I am instantly in love! Logged my breakfast and found that I'm at C+ for the day...time to add some good fruits and veggies at lunchtime!

Thanks for sharing this info!

Wow, that sounds like it would be really helpful! I'm trying to exercise more, and my son is trying to lose weight. I'll have to tell him about these sites.
BTW, your banner picture is just precious!
