Technology seems to be making everything easier, including weightloss. What are some of the apps you feel makes your WL easier?

08-10-2013, 03:47 AM
Carbmaster...and you?

MyNetDiary - It is for tracking weight loss, food and exercise. I find the user interface way better and easier to navigate than the myfitnesspal one.

Fitbit - although I usually prefer the full website version, but the app works ok for tracking my steps, weight, calories, etc... (have the fitbit one and aria devices)
My Days - (may be TMI sorry!) it predicts when my cycle starts perfectly. That way I force myself to stop tracking my weight for a couple days before and after. That way I don't get discouraged by the water weight gain lbs.

I use Fitbit as well and I track calories with MyFitnessPal and my cycle with Period Tracker Deluxe. Apps are helpful with keeping myself honest but I'm not always the best at entering info consistently. I like that Fitbit syncs itself and uploads data AND it can sync with MyFitnessPal. Makes me less apt to forget stuff, haha. :o

Weight, food and exercise: WW app
Daily steps: S Health
Learning to run: C25K lite
Period: P tracker
Grocery: Grocery Smart (I know the WW app has it but I've been using GS for so long it has my extras saved)

Does anyone use an app that uses GPS to track walking? I use to use Noom (which does food/weight/exercise tracking) but now that I'm using the WW app and have a new phone I haven't installed it. Looking for an app that people like for this kind of thing (we do a lot of bush walking).

jitterfish, I use endomondo pro to track my waking with GPS. I like it.

I use myfitnesspal for logging my food and exercise, and then i use sports tracker to keep track of my bike rides. it gives mph, distance, time, calories burned. I could probably use it for when I walked too. but i <3 bike riding. lol

Track my Ride and/or Track my Run. and my Weight Watchers app of course....

I have been without phone since 8/5 because I am loaning mine to my eldest daughter...hers flew out of her pocket on a roller coaster....

I feel SO lost.....eeek

Definitely FitBit (I have a FitBit One) and MyFitnessPal, which links directly together :).

Stoked to see all these fit bitters and my fitness pals! Do we have a thread for usernames? I'd love more MFP and Fit bit friends. Or... You know, ANY MFP and fit bit friends. :^:

I am also getting back on the weightless train and just bought a fitbit flex, would love to have friends...

01-08-2014, 03:25 PM
Lose It and MapMyWalk/Hike. And only semi-weight related, but Spotify, because that's where I keep my workout playlists :)

01-08-2014, 06:16 PM
I am seriously considering a FitBit . . . the downside is that it won't track my yoga work.

I like RunKeeper and Period Tracker Lite.

01-12-2014, 04:48 AM
Runkeeper and Google music!

01-13-2014, 11:24 PM
Mufitnesspal! Absolutely cannot live without it!

01-14-2014, 02:32 AM
my Weight Watcher App
my bodybuilding.com App

01-20-2014, 12:50 AM
Songza. It gives me new music to listen to when working out.
My fitness pal as well!

01-20-2014, 02:10 PM
Fitbit and MapMyRun. I use them daily.

01-20-2014, 10:57 PM
I love LoseIt! I have been using it forever and it just works really well for me. :)

Runkeeper and The Berry! Has anyone checked out the daily motivation section of the Berry? Amazing.

01-21-2014, 01:01 PM
Love the Berry!!! Chive too, I skip past most of the nekked ladies though :)

MyFitnessPal, FitBit, and Period Tracker.
For fitness I love C25k or Ease into 5k, Sworkit, anything Lolo, and Run keeper.

Some new ones I'm just trying out: Bodyweight, Hot5, Map My Ride (bike)

01-26-2014, 04:01 PM
I personally love Noom! Its my go to app, I've tried others that I didn't like near as much.

02-21-2014, 09:08 PM
map my walk

03-18-2014, 11:15 AM
I am using Noom Weight and I am liking it - alot! It helps particularly in reminding me of my goals, and keeping me motivated. And the basic version (which is just fine) is FREE.

03-18-2014, 11:18 AM
Definitely FitBit (I have a FitBit One) and MyFitnessPal, which links directly together :).

fitbitters - how do you keep it accurate. where do you wear your fitbit. I have tried on the waist, pocket and i get readings all over the place. I had to stop using it because it was never accurate.

09-04-2014, 11:02 AM
Map My Walk
My Fitness Pal

My Fitness Pal and Runkeeper!

I use the My Fitness Pal app. I recently got a Fitbit Zip and have it synced with the My Fitness Pal app, which is convenient. I like logging my food in My Fitness Pal because it has the most comprehensive food database of all the apps I've ever used, so I don't have to add custom foods very often. Plus, I can scan foods into my food diary. I also use the Map My Fitness app sometimes. I like that it tracks my walking routes, how many miles per hour I've walked, how much distance, etc. I use it when I'm walking an unfamiliar route so I don't under- or overdo it. I have the Spark Recipes app that I use some weeks when I'm planning my healthy meals for the week. And, of course, there's the iP Free app...like others on this thread, I like to have the reminders pop up when I'm due, so I can avoid the scale that week and not get discouraged. :carrot:
