Laura's - FOOD: Nourish, Sustain, Protect, and Enliven Me
At age 30 I weighed 118 lbs. By the time I was 50 I weighed 135 lbs. I tried diets that took the weight of for a while, but nothing that could become a lifestyle. I found this app which tracks the food I eat and the exercise I do. Over a few months I lost 15 lbs and have kept it off for over a year. Not a gimmick, but a way to regulate one's own lifestyle. I love this app!
