Hi, I have had great success using a website called www.fitday.com. in many ways, its a little basic, and not terribly intuitive. However, it has the ability to look up and track the calories that you consume and expend every day; track your weight change, and a modest list of other reports. Since its free, and on-line, I find it useful.

Here is my question for you, my fellow bandsters, for this poll:

Do you use Fitday.com?

What other sites do you use?

Please share them with us, along with the features, benefits, costs, if any, and of course, their web address.

Thanks!! Brad

I track my calories on fitday - everyday for 3 months now. It helps alot, escpecially to hold myself accountable when I eat a hershey kiss or two or three - It all adds up. Right now I am eating about 1500 cal. per day. I would really like to get that down to 1200, but I need to make better food choices!

I started with fitday.com but downloaded their desktop program, called FitdayPC. It's only $20 for fitday.com users, and it's WORTH EVERY PENNY. It does a lot the online version can't do, and makes it much more pleasant to track my intake (read: I do it more often).

The best feature of FitdayPC is that you can enter and save custom foods, either by recipe, nutrition label info, or ingredients. I have custom foods called things like "turkey sandwich lunch." Online you had to enter all the items individually, every time.

It has a lot more functionality in general, lots that I don't even use. I highly recommend it!!

I use sparkpeople.com and highly recommend it. I tried fitday, but dodn't like that I could save my own foods, and it was a bit hard to navigate. Spark people is perfect for me - I have my own personalized food section or I can choose a ready planned menu, track my weight, measurements, exercise, and other life goals. Check it out, after all, it is free!!!!

www.sparkpeople.com

Hope you like it!

This is all very good info, I think I may reconsider my current choice which is the weight watchers point system. Although it is a bit quicker to track, i'm affraid it's not accurate enough.

I paid for fitday but I dont tend to log in. I did it in the beginning, then went without logging for months. I am trying to get back on track, have been writing down all my food and am ready to get it on fitday to see how I have been doing.

      I feel like I've finally gotten past the biggest hurdle. Surgery date is September 6th, the day after Labor Day, and yesterday I got my insurance approval letter. I've followed everything they've told me to do, and I've even lost 30 lbs on my own since hubby had to change his diet for diabetes. No worries now about having to do 4 weeks of the liver shrinking diet instead of 2. On my initial visit, if I had gained just 5lbs I would have had to do 4 weeks. It's getting closer. Just 2 more months to wait.

        Although the prep work took energy, I found the biggest hurdle was post-operative. The first 48 hrs were extremely uncomfortable. I did an overnight and trying to down the liquids, Tylenol, and especially the barium was rough. Thankfully though, I got away with only having to have 1 belly injection after surgery. Needless are not my thing.

      I am looking for people to connect with that are 4-5 years out. Many of the support sights I go to are all newbies. And while I enjoyed that when i first had my surgery and found it useful, I am looking to exchange ideas with folks that are out a few years. I am slowly gaining weight back and losing my excitement. I don't want that!

      How do you stay focused? I'm struggling a bit the past three days.  All I want is sweets and carbs.  I have no clue what changed but for some reason I'm craving hard.  I'm literally dreaming about food and when I wake up, I'm thinking about my next meal.  I'm not "hungry" but so munchy.  I'm trying to stay focused, busy, exercise and the likes but this looking struggle is getting to be so hard.  I meet with my nutritionist tomorrow and I'm so hopeful she has some advice.  My protein intake is great, liquids on point, even throwing in some raw veggies and berries to curb the sweet/carb craving.  Thoughts?
