Another tool for obsessing about food and exercise

link1 and link2
This is just exactly what we need. Another tool for obsessing about what we eat and how much we exercise. Not to mention that it's designed around Windows only, and only works well with IE7 (which is a whole 'nother rant). Not only do you have to wear the damned thing all the time, you have to input exactly what you ate, using their list of foods (and how complete is that, does it cover recipes you use at home and have modified? Probably not). The cost is another obstacle, $399 for this little baby, and you have to subscribe to the website to use it. Yeah, this is really something I would want to use if I were interested in losing weight. It's bad enough that they expect us to throw good money after bad away on Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers, NutriSystem and other diets that don't work, now they want us to keep throwing money at them on a monthly basis after we've found out that those diets don't work because this tracks calories in/calories out. Now we all know how well that works, been there done that, sorry, don't need any more t-shirts, hats, or key chains to prove it.
But hey, we're supposed to be buying into the OMGOBESITYEPIDEMICKILLZ and be willing to do anything, spend any amount of money in order to get thin. Sorry, think I'll just keep on opting out of that hysteria. I have better places to spend that kind of money (like on fresh fruits and veggies, books, DH, grandkids, etc, etc).
