Then the company who sold BalanceLog was sold and the new company doesn't support it for the Palm anymore. It does comes in a desktop version but only for Windows. It's not worth the effort to get Windows just for that. Besides, my program on my Palm worked fine for a few years.
I tried using it the other day and I needed a passkey. I couldn't find one so I started looking online for something similar. I liked the look of FitDay but it is also just for Windows. But luckily they have an online version which is free. So now I can log on at any computer but I can't just grab my Palm. Oh well.
I am on Day 3. The first day was a little tedious finding and altering some of my foods. But then there is a drop down menu for recent foods so you don't have to go searching so hard.
One of the good things I have discovered is that my favorite chocolate is only 1/4 of a serving. All this time, I thought one square was a serving and making sure I never ate more than one a day, trying to go days without any, and now I learn that 4 squares is a serving. No, I am not eating more, OK, just one extra square somedays, but I feel less guilty when I eat one at all.
And I don't follow the calories so strictly. But one of the best ways to watch what you eat is to keep a food journal. When you have to write everything down, you are less likely to cheat.
I notice that my "obsessions" seem to have about a 6-9 month life span. So if I can keep this up for 6-9 months, I will be doing well. And I had better be losing some weight too.
