Judie’s Gear Diary – 2002-12-27


It's still a tad early for me to declare my new years resolutions, but I already know that a major goal for 2003 will include being more faithful about working out.
I have a friend that wants to lose a substantial amount of weight in 2003. To show my support for her desire to make a change, I joined Curves with her; we are planning on “getting serious” starting the first of the year. I have told her that working out isn't the only thing we need to do, though – we also have to keep an account of everything that we eat.
Much as I like some of the other diet and excercise programs I have tried in the past, I believe that I have now found one that is the king…or rather, the Calorie King of diet programs.
This application has a serious database of all the fast food restaraunts that I love to eat at, because let's face it – I am on the run quite often. For instance, the database includes Popeyes, Chick-fil-a, Blimpie's, and Quizno's. It even has Olive Garden, Red Lobster, Applebee's and Starbuck's, as well as a multitude of other fast food establishments and “sit-down-dining” places. Calorie King also has a huge database of almost all of the everday foods that I enjoy, as well as being configurable for any I might want to add.
I guess what I am trying to say is that I will be much more likely to keep track of what I eat, as will my friend, when the foods we enjoy are actually this easy to look up. There is also a graph that will show weight progress – either by day or by week, so I can track my progress as we go.

Overall, I am very impressed with Calorie King – and I hope that using it in combination with our Curves memberships will give my friend and myself the results that we are hoping for in 2003. :0)
