The app that ate my life
My favorite app out of all the dozens I have been installing is called Lose It! That is a picture above of the logo for the Lose It! App.
The Lose It! App lets you track all the food you are eating and program your calorie count so you will lose the weight you want to lose in the time you want to lose it in. Howard and I both signed up.
Being Type A I am chomping at the bit, which is better than chomping at the taco chips, but still. I told Lose It! that I wanted to lose 10 pounds and I wanted those 10 pounds the hell off me by May 1. So it has me on this Spartan rationing.
Then Howard gets on Lose It! And he says, "I don't care how long it takes me."
End result: Lose It! programmed him to lose his weight by Jan. 11, 2011.
He does not have to lose a lot, either! It is just a little. That kills me, that he has till January of next year to do it.
Howard says: "It's healthier that way."
We programmed in our dinner which was Mexican Lasagna and roasted broccoli and then Howard had a piece of Jewish apple cake that my friend Jane made. He can eat the apple cake seeing that he has until January to lose his weight.
The Lose It! app chews and digests the information and it spits out at you how many calories you have left to eat. We both ended up below budget, which is good.
Bon App-etite! That is an app surely someone has come up with.
