Best App Ever!

Several months ago (February to be exact), my brother-in-law introduced me to the MOST amazing app ever! I was really struggling to lose my newlywed/baby weight (about 30 pounds) and I was really not happy about the way I looked.  
He had started using My Fitness Pal and so that evening I downloaded it. I figured I would maybe lose a little bit but didn't have much hope that I would get back to the weight I wanted.

Well, here I am 7 months later and I'm down 25 pounds with only a few more to go. Actually, I haven't been this weight since before Kevin and I met. I am wearing clothes that I never thought I'd wear again and feeling so much better about myself. Not to mention, I have so much more energy than I used to. (Sorry the before pic is a little fuzzy. I had to download it from my blog.)
Weight: 149 pounds
Weight: 174 pounds
So how exactly does this app work, you ask? Great question! It helps you count your calories but in the easiest way possible. When you start, you enter your weight, height, goal weight, and how many calories you'd like to lose per week.

Then, it gives you your calorie amount per day. You input the foods you eat and it counts them for you. It also has the entire menu from pretty much any restaurant. So, when I go out to eat, I just type in the restaurant name and then choose from the list which foods I've eaten.
You can also put in the exercises you do and then it adds calories to your day. At the end of the day, you submit your day and it tells you how much you will weigh in 5 weeks if you eat that amount each day. Very motivating to see those lower numbers!!
So here's the best part about this app. It's FREE! I know it can be downloaded on iPhones and I think Droids. Also, you can use it online too at

If you are trying to lose weight or just want to start keeping track of your eating, this app is definitely a must have!
