A few months before my wedding-a friend of mine joined weight watchers and got a free 3 month trial membership to the online version---which she never used-so she ended up giving me the username and password. I used the online account to keep track of what i was eating...and surprisingly, i started to really feel a difference in my clothes. Calorie counting really does work!! (I'm actually not heavy, in any way shape or form...but like i said yesterday, I'm not "content" with my weight--I've gained a total of 14 lbs since my wedding-which by the way, was ONLY 6 MONTHS AGO!!!!) Every time I ate, i would go online (or on my phone) and enter what i ate...and it would calculate how many points (calories) i had left for the day. I was able to see what i was eating...and boy!! If I would've kept this up, maybe i wouldn't have gained the extra weight!!

So basically I know I'm supposed to consume a total of 1200 calories a day, if i want to loose 1 lb every week. Which in turn, kinda sucks, because i want to loose about 14 lbs a week...but then again, that really isn't healthy or realistic, now is it?
Do any of you use this app? If so...how do you like it? Any cool features that i don't know of yet?? I just started using it yesterday...so I'm still learning. Any of you use any other apps for calorie counting?? If so, which ones?
