New Year, new lifestyle'

I have really been horrible about updating. Almost seven months have passed and quite a bit of weight has come off. I still am going to Zumba class 2-3 days a week but I am no longer with weight watchers. I had great success with the program but I wanted to do the diet portion on my own without having to calculate points. This way, when I reach my goal weight, I will be ready to maintain my weight without having to pay a monthly fee. I found this app for my iPhone called MyFitnessPal and I am loving it! I plugged in my numbers, age,height, weight, goal weight, and it told me the amount of calories I should be eating a day to lose weight. I track what I eat and what excersise I do. It even has a handy barcode scanner for easy tracking! Before I found this app I tried food journaling, I found myself havin under 1000 calories a day but no budging on the scale. I now know that eating too little calories can be as bad as having too many. The scale has moved in my favor and I'm back on track! It's a great feeling to be doing this without a "program."
