high tech dieting

Losing weight in 2014 is so much more fun then 2004 or 1994! Back in 1994 I would devote a notebook to calorie and weight tracking and in 2004 I had spreadsheets.  But, now? I have websites that link to each other, feeding information into a variety of charts and graphs, and in some cases giving me the opportunity to earn discounts, rewards, donations to charity, and even actual cash. Talk about motivating!

The weight I use on my weight journey page here is the same as I log at MyFitnessPal. That weight feeds out to Fitbit, SparkPeople, and others. That weight is Mondays, in the morning, naked. DietBet has its own weight logging and is usually a little different because that weight is when I am dressed for the photos required there (described as airport security attire) and so far hasn’t been a Monday.

My exercise page is the portion of my daily exercise that I do purposefully on the treadmill and record here. But that’s just a portion of all the Fitbit data throughout my day that then feeds into MyFitnessPal for calories and Earndit, Everymove, AchieveMint, Walgreens, and others to earn me discounts, cash, donations to charity, entries to contests, etc.

Truly amazing… In another ten years, when I am maintaining this loss, I wonder what the trackers are going to look like and do…
