Weight loss and weight management catch-all!

Noom is nice but I wish they let me save recipes.

Like your example Robear. If I could save "ham sandwich" and then mark it as "ate half" then it would be able to know the calories.

It isn't horrible to have to do it by each piece but it would be nice.

I checked out Noom and it wasn't for me. I was looking for just a calorie tracking app. Noom forces registration (fine, I get it) and nagged me twice in 3 minutes to 'start a course' which I couldn't back out of once I started.

Yes, it nags a lot but I think that is what many people need.

I am using the my fitness pal app since not renewing Noom and it does a pretty good job of just tacking calories with no hounding.

I've had good luck in the past with Sparkpeople to track calories and could add my own entries if I didn't trust what someone else had put into the food database.

I'm trying to get back on the wagon again, though not to the point of food tracking. Just eating *better* food would be an improvement at this point as well as getting exercise. After a few hours today of being unmotivated to get out, I took a few moments to think of why, and I was experiencing a bit of mild depression for no obvious reason, so I just forced myself to go out and walk around on an outdoor trail for a few minutes.

I really need to get over this slump I've been in for the past few months.

I’ve been slumping too, Bekkilyn, but lately I’m clambering back onto the wagon. It’s not a sprint, it’s a marathon. As you find ways to adapt, you’re building tools that will help you in the long run.

Good move to go walking around outdoors. That’s a great mood-enhancer (even if it just goes from “grim” to “down”, that’s a start).

Saturday, I got back out for a walk. Yesterday, it was raining and I was out of town most of the day for my churches, but was on my feet much of the time during the services, so hopefully that counted for something. I've been doing better with food and using carrots for snacks. I also have a gallon jug of water next to the computer. I know I'm supposed to be drinking a half gallon of it at least each day, but so far haven't been able to drink that much. At least I'm drinking *more* of it though!
