Just thought I’d share since I know a lot of people here are trying to lose weight and get healthy.
I started out on Weight Watcher’s online, but have dropped it in favor of Sparkpeople. I wasn’t losing weight so I started keeping track on SP and found I was getting way too many carbs. I’m not a fan of low carb diets, but one does need to keep a balance. I’m eating healthier now and can see all the various nutrients I’m getting.
I’ve also started walking and SP keeps track of your exercise and how many calories you burn while doing so. I’m lousy at math so my daughter showed me this link where you can input your time and distance and it calculates how fast you were walking/running. Then you can put it into SP and it tells you how many calories you burned.
Oh and if you don’t know the distance use Gmaps Pedometer. It’s awesome!
(BTW…I"m not knocking WW, it’s a great program and helped me lose weight in the past. This is just working better for me now and it’s free. )
