August 26, 2010

So a friend of mine told me aout MyFitnessPal, a free fitness/calorie tracker. I have used FitDay and really got a lot out of it, but she had such good things to say aout MFP that I looked into it.

I really like it! It's much cuter than FitDay.

And it has saocial media type of aspect that I love, of course. Like a fitness-related facebook/twitter kind of thing. (With really good forums, too!) And it feels like a much more interactive site than many of the others I've seen. It's that social network part of it that makes it so much fun. I have  wanted to be active with an online fitness/nutrition community, but  it's like starting all over in a new school--- you know? I thought, well, I already have this awesome crafty community, why not see if any of the people I already know want to join me!

So I am making it my mission to get my peeps to join with me so we can all support each other. About 20 of my twitter/facebook pals have joined so far and we are having such fun with it!

Do you already work out and eat well? Great, join us and help us stay motivated!

Want to get fit or manage your eating a bit better? Awesome! Many are in the same boat. Starting out with our community of  crafty friends is a great way to stay on track!

Overweight and bummed? But not quite ready to make a change yet? Join anyways! You can keep your food diary private and just start logging what you eat to be aware of it. Often, just knowing you are going to record it will help you make better choices! And if it doesn't, you'll be able to see in black and white what's going on. It doesn't have to be scary and you don't have to change everything all at once!

Your crafty community is right here with you ready to support and encourage you! Add me as a friend (my username is yummygoods, of course), check out my friend list and add those you know. There are a handful of fellow fabric designers, as well as clothing and quilt designers!


Let's do this together! In our awesome crafty community we already cheer each other on in other aspects of life, why not this very important one?

Click here to begin! And then go to this post and leave your info so we can all get to know each other!



P.S. All of us who have been tracking and using the site actively for the last ten days have lost weight!
