Lose It! Back on Track
A few months ago I posted about my success stories with a weight loss plan called Lose It!, which is actually a combination of an iPhone/Android application, and a webapp used to count calories and track exercise.
I had huge successes with it, reaching my initial weight loss goal in only a few months, but at the time I felt like it wasn’t enough, I just wanted to keep going since it was working amazingly!
The problem I faced was the social aspect of losing weight, as all of my friends and family stopped using the app and website entirely, and I was left on my own to log daily food intake. It just didn’t seem to be much fun doing it alone. I soon stopped posting my results on Facebook, thus stopped receiving positive feedback on Facebook. Eventually I stopped logging food for 2 or 3 days in a row, which totally threw me off, and made me stop logging entirely.
My initial goal was to hit 180 pounds, and you can see how quickly I achieved (and stayed under) that initial goal. As I neared every closer to my 170 pound goal, is the exact point in time when I stopped using the program in such a dedicated manner. I would go days or weeks without logging anything, and even longer without weighing in.
What is really a shame here, is how fast and effective the program was for me, and that I quit for months on end. Not anymore! I’m back in the swing on things, along with some friends back on board to help along the way as well.
Angela recently purchased a ton of healthy dinners for us to cook together, and we just purchased the Lose It! book as well, which we got a great deal on… You can get a great deal too!
I know the new-found support and influx of Android users for the app will come in handy for me. I truly believe the social aspect that Lose It! has plays a huge part in mine (and undoubted others) success.
My copy of the Lose It! book should be here in about a week, and once I have a chance to really read it, I’ll be sure to share thoughts.
