For Motivation...

Jamey loves this site. It offers a wealth of health information plus lots of fitness tools you can put to good use. She especially likes the BMI calculator and all the personalized information you can access once you punch in your details.

The Visual MD
This site made us ooh and aah. The 3-D imagery is pretty amazing, and who wouldn't be motivated to lose weight after seeing how their fat is choking their organs?!

For Tools You Can Use...

Register at Livestrong for a sea of free fitness and health tools right at your fingertips. One of Jamey's faves is the MyPlate food diary and tracker. There's a mobile app for this, too, so you can even calorie-count on the road!

ThinQ Fitness
This is just one of many YouTube channels that features a ton of quality exercise videos in one spot. We especially love ThinQ Fitness' cheerleading workout! It's guaranteed to get your heart a-pumpin'!

For Encouragement and Support...
