There are multiple elements that have to fall into place in order for one to lose weight. I personally think you have to reach a point where you want to change and won’t allow obstacles to stop you.
Cleaning up your diet, eating food for fuel, and exercising daily are really important, but now a days there are some amazing tools for weight loss to help you achieve your goals!
I have absolutely fallen in love with the Libra Scale by Runtastic! I honestly didn’t think I’d ever say that about a scale, but the Libra is incredibly accurate and provides me with data to better understand my body composition.
The Libra not only measures your body weight, but it also tracks your body fat, muscle mass, body mass index, bone mass, water weight, calorie consumption, and goals!
The scale, which syncs to your iPhone via Bluetooth, shows you how your statistics compare over time! I’ve loved being able to see how my measurements compare week to week and how my weight loss is going over time. The scale, no matter my results week to week, has really made weighing in enjoyable. It is a tool that I now can’t do without!
I have owned a number of pedometers/accelerometers and the Polar Loop is by far my favorite! The feature that really blows me away every day is the breakdown of my activity. Being able to see how many hours I’ve spent sleeping, laying down, sitting, standing, walking, and running means more to me than just seeing my steps for the day. My goal is always to reach 10,000 steps, but the Polar Loop has made me watch how much time I spend sitting each day. Whether it’s standing while I’m on the phone, going for a walk during lunch, or spending some extra time at the gym, the Polar Loop has helped me understand my activity within a 24 hour period.
I have a serious addiction to day planners, but I believe them to be an important tool for weight loss. My latest obsession is the 2014 Simplified Planner. I love that you can track your day’s events, like your workouts, create a to do list, and map out your dinners. Planners like this one will help you to get organized, which is key for weight loss.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Instagram and have found it to be an important tool for my weight loss. Not only am I able to share my daily eats and workouts on my own account, but I am able to follow others. Seeing other people’s journeys pushes me! People inspire me, you inspire me, and I love being able to connect with others on their own journey!
