An App To Track Your Weight Loss and Fitness Progress

Feel Free To Share

 

Let’s face it – the scale can be a pain in the butt sometime. You have been working hard all week, hitting the gym and eating clean and the scale has not moved. I understand how frustrating that can be, but the scale does not tell the whole story. There are many reasons why they scale does not move (water retention, muscle growth, hormones), but it doesn’t mean you are doing anything wrong.

I am not one of these people that says “throw the scale away”, as I think that as scale is a useful tool to be used alongside other things to track your progress. But only weigh yourself if you can make sure you don’t get obsessed with the number (also, don’t weigh yourself every day, or several times a day for the sake of your sanity). I personally am a numbers person (I am not obsessed with the number though) and if I didn’t weigh myself, then I never would have known that I lost 100lbs.

But I think it is important to track progress other ways too when losing weight, and a good way to do that is through measurements and photos. Sometimes, when the scale has not moved, you have lost inches, which means your body is getting smaller and more toned.

I really like the Bodytrack.it app because you are able to compare any photo side-by-side (both front and side-facing shots), overlapping the photos, and bring up the measurements/weight behind the pics.

Bodytrack.it is a weight, measurements and photo tracking app for people losing weight and getting fit. It combines rapid data logging with progress visualisation tools and rewards for reaching milestones. Created for iOS 7 and iPhone, Bodytrack.it’s features are designed to both motivate and encourage slimmers to reach their body goals. Users can compare photos side-by-side, overlay them, or call up the individual measurements behind them. An instant, shareable progress report and detailed graphs display their progress at-a-glance. Users can unlock badges rewarding continuous tracking and making progress toward a goal.

 

Key features: 

● Customised tracking preferences – choose from weight, body fat %, BMI, waist-to-hip ratio and 17 standard points of measurement, or add up to five of your own

● Set a primary goal to work toward

● Supports UK, US and metric units

● Entry database list uses colour markers to indicate progress toward or away from goal

● Graphs display progress against your goal

● Add unlimited historic data and images

● Easily edit and delete entries

● Create a passcode to keep data private

● Backup data via iTunes

● Set reminders for regular tracking

 

Over the next few months they will be adding more rewards and looking at getting it to sync with some of the major fitness apps so people using multiple apps don’t have to duplicate inputting their data.

The app is priced at £1.49 / $1.99. There is a free, weight-only version called Bodytrack.it Free, but to unlock all the features mentioned above, you need to buy the full version.
Bodytrack.it is currently only available for Apple devices operating iOS 7 or above, so no Android or Windows versions yet I’m afraid. Hopefully that will be coming soon!
If you are looking to lose some weight and get healthy, then tracking your progress is really important to keep you on track and motivated.

    When you say it is going to link up to other apps, would that include My Fitness Pal? As I have been really enjoying using that too.

    Finally something that isn’t just focused on weight loss. I have always gone by how my clothes fit, so it would be nice to have more or a visual tracker like this. Thanks for sharing.
