I would like to use food to jumpstart my metabolism and gradually add a consistent exercise routine to the mix. My spine was injured in a car accident when I was six months pregnant with my last child, so many exercise classes are painful. I'm looking for sounding boards and the chance to be accountable to a group so that I will be motivated to keep at it. Thanks for listening! Mon, 10 Sep 2012 22:44:45 EST Anyone from South Jersey?

For example, if I make myself a homemade tuna salad, how do I know how many calories that is? I get frustrated and just quit putting in the foods I eat because I don't know how to calculate the calories! Any ideas?
