I'm linking up to Missy Mac's for Wednesday Weigh-In again this week. I'm so very proud of myself this week - I was super good with the food AND took the dog for walks 3 times! :-)
Before I put my stats out there I thought I could share a quick review of an App I found on the App Store a few weeks ago: Lose-It. You can use Lose-It to track you weight and exercise goals and, keep a food journal. The database behind it has a gazillion different foods (even restaurant food) and their nutritional value (calories, fat grams, carbs, protein, etc.) or you can create your own "food" by entering the nutritional value of your favourite recipes.
The best part is that it takes the guess work completely out of losing weight. You enter your current weight, your goal weight, and it calculates how many calories you must consume daily in order to lose weight. For example, I said I wanted to lose 30 lbs by June 2. That means I need to lose 1 1/2 lbs per week. In order to do that, I have to stay under 1400 calories per day. The food journal allows you to track your calories consumed but also tells you how many fat grams, carbs, protein so you can make sure your diet is pretty balanced (you don't want 1400 calories of fat!).
Lose-It is compatible with the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. I just love it!
So now for the stats:
Goal: -30 lbs
This week: -2 lbs
Total: -6 lbs
Inches: - 1/2"
It feels really, really good to see that my clothes (especially my pants) are starting to fit a lot better already.
Be sure to go on over to Missy Mac's and see what everyone else is up to!
