Counting Calories

Recommended Posts

So I think I should start counting calories to help in my weight loss efforts but I have no idea where to begin. Let me know if you count calories and how you started. Any tips would be helpful.smile41.gif

I used to do Weight Watchers and counted the points instead of calories. It seriously was the best thing I ever did for my health, and it helped me to lose over 50 pounds. I don't do it anymore, but I know there is a whole WW section on here, so you would have lots of support!

I used Fitday.com to track my food and calories. This is a site with a calculator to tell you how many calories you need per day to maintain or lose weight.

Calorie Calculator - Daily Caloric Needs

 

Once you figure out what you need to eat, make sure you exercise too. The harsh truth is that diet + exercise = weight loss. You will lose a lot faster if you even just walk 30 minutes a day.

I use my iphone- there's an app called Lose it! and it's a free app. I can add my foods and track all of my progress no matter where I'm at! I guess technically I could do that on the internet on the phone too- but this is just easier wink.gif

I'm on the HCG Diet -- weigh the food, but not counting calories. Been on it for 7 weeks, and lost 22 pounds with little exercise. Just to jump start my weight loss. Almost done with the diet (2 weeks to go), and will be adding strength training and higher caloric intake of food to get more fit and toned. Down to my goal size. Woo hoo!

I was considering doing WW, why don't you do it anymore?

i'm gonna be doing WW after my weight loss challenge is up. I notice that as long as I get exercise in I can kinda eat what I want. I just can't sit around and no anything.

Right now i'm not counting calories...more like not eating a big portion. I do try to eat what has less calories...i'm drinking 1% milk now, I drink diet snapple, I eat kettle or baked chips. and that's just the junk food...lol

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
