Lets talk Calorie Count (.about.com)

Calorie Count
Best little tool for counting those calories. To be fair, it’s a little bit more difficult that just punching in caloriecount.com.

So here you are….
www.caloriecount.about.com

One word : AMAZING

Let me say this first… I am in no way getting anything from that site to talk about it. I’m not getting aid, I’m not getting anything at all… so rest assured that all of this is 100% my own personal opinion….

I love, love this site.

Like I said in my FAQ it’s easy to use…it keeps everything in order nicely. A lot of it is just point and click….

But even better than how great it is as a tool…the people there are (generally) amazing. I’ve been on CC 3 years-ish…. and the people are great.

If you have a question people are there to answer then from their own personal experiences.

If you have want to share an accomplishment, people are there to congratulate you…. and urge you to keep going…

If you have some venting to do…there are people there to vent with you, support and encourage you.

It’s great!!!!!

It’s definitely a bonus that practically every person there is on that site for the same reason as you (there are some who are there to gain weight… others who are maintaining)….. so you’ll never be alone on this.

This site helps from the beginning and well into maintaining….

I don’t know how many times someone has said something on a post I wrote that has just made my day.

Like today… one lady posted that she’s rooting for me from Jamaica!!! One gentleman said “Good to hear! I look forward to hearing about your progress”

It’s amazing… I have never met these people in person (and sadly, probably never will :'( ) But so many of them can (and have) give the encouragemernt that you can’t get from people you already have in your life.

*sigh* love it!

Oh, and CC only promotes healthy eating diets… no pro-mia/ana posting…. no unhealthy posting and such.

On that note… I have had 17 messages (thanks!!!) since starting this site…which is awesome….. 6 of these messages have been questions about Ana/Mia lifestyles…

I did not lose 62 pounds with those methods… healthy eating and exercise only. It took me 2 years to lose it…..

please don’t ask me questions about fad diets, anorexia, bulimia…. anything like that. I’m not trying to be rude but I won’t respond to any of those…. I’m trying to promote healthy weight loss.

But FIY CC also has a place for people who are recovering from EDs….go check it out.

Good Luck!!!!
