D2 suggested I try My Fitness Pal to help me with tracking my calories and hopefully shedding some pounds. She set it up on my phone and set a goal for me. The calorie counting at the top tells you how much you have to spend and how much you have used with every documented morsel you decide to tell it you have eaten. I thought it was a great idea, since she has been using it for a week now and really is getting the hang of it. I thought it would be a great mother-daughter bonding thing.
So, I was using it today, the FIRST day, and already it’s yelling at me. “I THOUGHT WE WERE WATCHING OUR CARBOHYDRATES?!” “HEY, MORON, I THOUGHT WE WERE WATCHING OUR SUGAR INTAKE!” “THERE’S SUGAR IN CHOCOLATE!” “WE ARE VERY CLOSE TO OUR DAILY CALORIE INTAKE AND IT’S ONLY 10AM!”
I’m starting to think My Fitness Pal is really My Calorie Asshole Nazi and I’m not enjoying it.
I think I’ll put in that I ate three Big Macs and doubled down on a two litre of Coca-Cola and see if it goes into any spasms of outrage. Maybe it will self-destruct. Maybe it will automatically email everybody and set up a food intervention circle.
That would be great as long as somebody brings the wine…
