So what ever happened to my weight loss goal from a year ago? I guess I lost interest in that sometime last fall… It was just too much of a hassle to track everything I ate or did. I’m trying to get back into packing lunches and cooking dinners, and I’ve recently started tracking my food on SparkPeople again, because I’m kind of disgusted with myself. (I’m about 1 lb. more now than I was when I started my so-called diet last year, though, so it’s not too bad.) But SparkPeople has redesigned their web site and it’s sort of horrible, also clunky, and it’s often impossible for me to find the foods I eat in their database, which means I have to enter the info myself or calculate it or something. So I just discovered My Calorie Counter, which seems so much nicer! For one thing, food, water, and activities are all tracked on the same page. The food entry screen goes a lot faster. And there’s no system to earn useless points, either! They claim to have the largest food database on the web, and so far that’s held true, even for my apparently bizarre eating habits. (I really don’t understand why SparkPeople has so much fast food in their database!) And even though they’re similar, I like MCC’s charts a little better, too. The only thing I don’t like is that you apparently can’t add nutrients to track – for example, I was also tracking Calcium at SparkPeople. But other than that, it seems able to do all the same things. So I’m going to call this my “second attempt” and try to get back on the ball!
