A year ago, a friend shared the Lose It App with me. I used it faithfully for months because it helped me track my personal calorie budget. I even shared it with others who have used it with much success. Today, however, after weeks of frustration, I decided to delete it.
Here’s why: I just can’t bring myself to use it properly. It’s too easy to cheat because it’s based on calories, not on nutrition. (I know that there’s nutrition info built into the App, but I can never get excited about using it) Therefore, I found myself making unhealthy choices, mistakenly assuming that calories are just calories.
If you like Lose It and it works for you, keep using it. I won’t be joining you. I’m going back to writing down everything I eat because that works for me. Don’t worry, I’m not going to post it everyday like I did last year. I will be sharing it with my favorite accountability partner. She’s tough, but cute.
