I am running to get fit and lose weight. Problem is when I started I ate shed loads as a reward for running and guess what....more weight. So I decided to track what I was eating. I did this using a free online tool which is at

Hi WG, Just had a look..great! Got the usual dilemma of trying to think of a login name and password but other than that, it's reallt good. FYI I have eaten 865 calories and burnt off 600 plus today! I'm good through the day but wicked on a night (I meant with eating...tut tut!)

Hi Zoe! You ought to have a go, it was good to find out that the three hours I spent cleaning a nicotine stained ex-rest room wasn't entirely wasted!

I'm with you all on this one. How can I put on weight when I'm doing more exercise than ever? And don't give me that "muscle weighs more" bit - -I know when I'm fatter!!!!!

Ok since tracking the food (for 2 weeks)and running the weight is starting to come off.

I dont weigh myself but my old (read smaller!!) trousers fit!!! I was going to bin them.

All that food diary guff seems to do the trick

such a good feeling

Hi I'm new to the runners world site and have been browsing through it. Anything to do with weight management always interests me as I am constantly battling the bulge and losing. I can't run at the moment because I have done some ligament damage so I am taking the time to read through all the boards for inspiration. My friend and I had only been running seriosly as beginners for about 8 weeks when the injury struck. I wasn't even running at the time. Any tips to keep me motivated would be great and I will visit the fitday site since you all seem to have found it so useful.

Hi Rosemary
What injury did you have and how long to you have to rest.
I broke my ankle last year, which needed fixing with plate and screws. I had lots of exercises walking with crutches then... oh, such muscle pain. And I was very good watching my food intake (keep telling myself that I could not reach the biscuit tin), lost some kilos these months.
Few weeks ago the plate and screws came out and I am told not to run for six weeks. I try to do some walking and swimming, but I can't get so enthousistic for it as I am for running. And I am putting on some kilos again. I then read in the forums how nice it is to run in rain and think I wish I could write that.
I should not complain. This injury time has a fixed end and I know I will get into it very quickly. I hope you have a defenite endpoint
