Mind-Blowing FREE Tracker 2 Go App

How many of you have been on a weight-loss journey for what seems like ages? Are you finding it difficult to lose the weight? I have discovered an app that I just love.

This Tracker2Go App helps me to plan for weight loss by keeping track of my calorie intake. The best part about this app is that it is free. I am intentional regarding my weight loss. I discovered I have gained 12 pounds since last year and the majority of it is in my stomach. How many of us know “if it was not for free?”  

BMI (Body Mass Index)

I discovered that my (BMI) body mass index is okay, but it is on the borderline of not being okay if there is more weight gain to my waist.   According to the American Heart Association an unhealthy body mass can result in heart disease, certain cancers, raised blood pressure, and cholesterol as well. Listed below is a BMI Calculator found at the American Heart Association.   You can calculate your BMI. 



Intentional

I am quite intentional. I don't like a muffin-top. It would be ideal if you could send the fat where you want it to go. I have decided besides being vigilant with my FREE Tracker2GoApp, I have been doing 100 stomach crunches a day. I started doing these on September 18, 2015. I believed it was not enough to just exercise and walk, but that I needed to take a look at my diet. I discovered I could no longer eat like I used to eat. There needed to be some changes made.


Food

I started using this app on September 28, 2015. I like that the Tracker app keeps a daily dairy for you of your food intake. All you do is enter the food you eat at each meal, it then calculates the number of calories for each food item and lets you know how many remaining calories you have before meeting your target calorie deadline for the day. For example yesterday for breakfast I had papaya juice-130 calories, oatmeal 102 calories, and margarine in the oatmeal 26 calories. Sometimes I will change it to a slice of bacon and maybe a boiled egg or pancakes. That was just for breakfast. The good thing about the tracker is I decide what and how much I eat. If I eat more during lunch, I may eat less at dinner. I always have a running tally of where I am at with my eating.




Exercise

There is a chart for exercise also which helps with your calorie intake. Now yesterday I walked for about 20 minutes. So when calculated on my app it added 52 calories for my allowance in addition to the calorie target that I had already chosen. I like that I always know where I stand as far as my calorie intake with just a glance at my diary on my app.


Charts

It also readily compiles your diary by day, month, and year, and even makes charts for you showing your energy target.

Although the tracker is relatively new for me, I will keep you updated on my journey.  I am very excited about it and I have lost 2 pounds thus far.
