When the pandemic started, and we spent a month just snacking constantly on junk food, and sitting around watching tv. We decided to get out and get some fresh air, and start walking more regularly again. Then came the decision to make a lifestyle change, lose weight, and start eating healthier. Five months later, we're both down 50+ pounds, and making much better choices with food, eating proper portions, and exercising a lot. We've had some great time together out walking, and enjoying the fresh air, and scenery. Such a great change. The pandemic has been awful, but it inspired us to be better.

August 2019. I had a health risk assessment for my employer's insurance. I knew I had gained weight but I never had a scale at home and didn't weigh myself regularly. I stepped on the provider's scale and was devastated by the number. Not only had I gained 20 lbs since 2018's assessment but my weight had gone up and over 200lbs. Something inside me snapped and I've been on a healthier journey ever since. Over 40lbs lost and many healthier habits gained. It started with walking and I slowly integrated cardio/strength training as well as finding yoga again. Using this tracker has helped me to realize the junk that was mindlessly going in and there was no activity to counter the calories. Making these changes for myself was one of the smartest and easiest things I've ever done. And it's been helping me get through the quarantine of the Covid pandemic!
