One tool that has been very helpful to me is using My Fitness Pal. I have the app on my iPod touch, and I know they have an Android app as well. It has the calories for just about everything, it also has the calories lost by doing different exercises. I downloaded the app, put in my stats and weight loss goal and then I started tracking... Be my friend on MyFitnessPal my name is, mizzb8505, be my friend and please help me be accountable, let's encourage each other!

I think that overall I did well yesterday and I tried to eat only whole foods, with the exception of the chips I did good. I am proud of myself because I got up yesterday at 6 am (thank you ladies *sarcasm*) and after the ladies went to bed around 9 I was spent! Even though I could have gone to sleep right then, I worked out for the next 2 hours! GO ME!
