Are You Wanting To Lose Weight? I Discovered An Amazing Tool!

Oh my stars~ I need to tell you about this site. It is called Calorie Count. It is on-line and it is free. You set up a profile and then each day log your food. It counts calories but more important it rates the nutrition of your food. At the end of the day it gives you a grade on nutrition for what you ate that day. This is my 10th day and I have lost five pounds. It is much like a game and the accountability is amazing for me.  It has been so inspiring and easy to do. I was surprised at some food I thought was great and it turned out to be really bad.

You log in how much weight you want to lose and a target date. It will calculate how many calories you need to eat each day.  Each food you enter will be graded on an A to F scale. Some things you realize are just not worth the price.

You also log activity. It calculates intake with the activity. For example 1 hour of moderate housework without stopping burns 285 calories. While a very brisk 30 minute walk burns 204 calories.

It also has a recipe option to add your own recipes and calculate the entire recipe for all nutrition facts. Below is one that I made over the weekend .

If you want to shed a few pounds ~ give it a try. I love it!  Click here~

Hi Friend! Thanks for the note of concern on the blog a few weeks ago! I have so missed all my blog buddies, and yes.. blogging too. Congrats on your weight loss! I just keep losing then gaining back those same 5 to 7 pounds, over and over (and I want to lose about 20). Thanks for the info on this new tool, and also the recipe (yum). Blessings to you and yours and have a great weekend! -Tammy
