    Hi there. I introduced myself on this forum about a year ago but didn't really try too hard to lose weight, lost interest and put some more weight on. I am back now to do this properly.

    I am fed up feeling tired, frumpy and fat and have decided to finally do something about it. I am going to try calorie counting and am hoping that starting a diary on here will help keep me motivated.

    Today is day one and it has been a struggle so far but I have stuck with it and am hoping that it will get easier.

    Hi Tracey! Welcome!!
    Try to take take this one day at a time. Or as I found even one meal at a time.. This is going to be a way of life to get the weight off and keep it off. It you will do it!!!
    Calorie counting allows you the flexibility to eat anything u want, it's just learning to get the most you can from your number of cals each day.

    Welcome Tracey! I'm on day 6 so still pretty new too. Can you give us an idea of why you're struggling ? Is it calculating amounts or totting the calories up? I use the MyFitnessPal app, which is really easy to keep track off and has a huge food database . Sure you'll find what works for you - good luck!
