i am fairly new to this site --about 1 month now.. it has been so user friendly. the one tool i havent been using is the nutrition tracker. i found that the canned mealplans didnt fit my daily food picks.well,,,,,,,,,,,,, i was playing around with it today... because my weight has sort of stalled and i came across "picking your own food"... it looks like you can plug ANYTHING in with the amount you have consumed. i put in exactly what i have had today and it shows the calories, how much protein, carbs, ect. WHAT AN AWESOME TOOL! i am SO pleased with this.... so i did a little "research" into some of things i have been eating that i thought were just fine. OMGOSH!!! i try not to put salad dressing on my salad because of the cals,,, so i have been putting olive oil on...its suppose to be a "good fat" well....... i have been putting so much on i tallied one salad could add up way past 700 cals with just the olive oil !!! i am shocked but extremely happy to come out of the denial... THAT MUST be it as to why i havent been losing weight. Duh!! lol... anyway, when i get brave enough i think i will post my nutritional tracker.. the baby and my 2 year arent cooperating with my scheduled workout... ugh!! i will get them down at some point..frustrating!! and my 9 yr old and 11 yr old were fighting at the bus stop... gonna have a big talk with them when they come home... anyway, again i am thankful for finding this latest addition to my ongoing list of healthy strategies.
