My Fitness Pal

Wednesday, September 19, 2012

I really like the clean, clean interface of My Fitness Pal. Nothing to distract you. However, I also like Spark. So, here is how I can do both. I am going to Spark first thing in the morning, doing the trivia and the blog, and the trackers. With Fitness Pal I will either just enter the calories, or if it was a simple meal, enter the foods. My Fitness Pal makes it easier to enter foods that you eat all the time.

I love Coach Nicole and her exercises. I think I can use both websites. I am not going to weigh myself until I see some progress with my clothing. Then we will see if this new plan works.

    I like the food tracker on MFP better -- easier, and I love the scanner feature on my iphone.

    I like the exercise tracker better on SP

    There are pros and cons to each -- you can only create 6 customized meals on MFP, where here you can customize as many meals as you wish.

    But I like the community here better == it feels "safer" and with much less drama.

    I like the teams better on SP -- really the only thing I like better on MFP is the food tracker...

    I could not get it to work with my browser! Good luck!
    Personally, I find the spark trackers very easy to use. I have built up my own base of foods that I use with the calories in it on spark. emoticon
    have you joined the fall challenge?

    I agree, I love Coach Nicole and the exercises made available on Spark. emoticon

    Your plan to avoid the scale for a while is very good .. there are so many other ways to define "progress" and the scales is just one of them..I have a friend who evaluates her progress by how her clothes are fitting ..she was excited about getting into some of her old "slimmer" clothes she used to wear... emoticon

    Glad you have a worded out a system that works for you in using both Spark and Fitness Buddy. emoticon emoticon Peggy
