Holidays are coming up soon and everyone knows, when it’s holiday time, we tend to let ourselves go a little. Whether it’s staying up late watching a movie with snacks or simply eating out because you have no work to think about.
I know I have been there, where the night before munching on those delicious snacks seemed like such a great idea but in the morning you promise yourself never to do that again.
Although I cannot suggest a way to help stop you munching those lovely snacks, I can however help you track your weight during your holidays.
Here are a few suggestions.
This website is a one-man show and is developed by James Thomas. Its aim is simple and that is to track you weight and display it in a graph format. It is primarily used to monitor weight whilst on a diet. The cool thing about Skinnyr is that, it is now compatible with the Body Trace eScale. If you have the Body Trace eScale and this scale is connected to the internet through wireless internet, then all you have to do is take your weight as you normally would and it will automatically connect to Skinnyr.com and update you with your progress. How cool is that?
This site is dedicated to bring people together from around the world that wish to control their weight and in doing so they inspire each other. Once you register and are able to connect to other people from around the world, hopefully others and their success should have inspired you. The site helps you in your goal to control or loose weight by offering a BMI and calorie calculator.
A very simple and straight forward website. You can use it without being registered to the site if you are not interested in the articles and helpful tips. If you are only interested in calculating your BMI and calories from fat calculator then this is the site for you.
If you are interested in Apps because you are always on the go and do not have the time to logon or simply want your information at your finger tip then the following Apps for your iPhone, iPad and Andriod may be of some use.
