An awesome iPhone app!!
So one of the most encouraging things of my week was the discovery of the iPhone app Lose It!
Here is the link directly to iTunes so you can read all about it.
With this app, I can:
- set weight loss goals for each week
- set an overall weight loss goal
- track my caloric intake [BIG deal for me! Tracking is hard!]
- track my exercise
- set up reminders to track
- email progress reports to yourself [or your trainer] every day!
Almost every food you can think of, including stuff from the grocery stores (brand names) and restaurants foods are listed in the app. So it’s easy to search and find what you ate. I’ve had to go online a few times to research the calories in something, but once you add it to your foods, it is always available to choose from.
And according to Lose It!, if I stay on track, I could be at my goal weight by October 9, 2010. That seems so encouraging [and sorta crazy] to think that if I just keep tracking and working out, I could lose 70 lbs in 8 months.
The other amazing thing is that it is on my iPhone, so it’s easily accessible. That’s a big deal to me- I want these things to fit in my life, so I can add them to my daily regime. So far, the Lose It! app has been easy to learn, easy to use, and really encouraging! I recommend trying it out for anyone trying to lose a little weight.
So it’s fair to say that I *may* have a bit of a crush. On Lose It!. 🙂
Any other healthy living apps out there that I should be using? Tell me bout it!
