Sadly, FatWatch doesn't work on my iPhone anymore. Nowadays I'm using TrueWeight. But it doesn't interface with Apple Health, so for that I'm using PopWeight, which records both body fat % and weight.

Never, ever, EVER give up!

From BMI 53 (336 lbs) to under 30. Now aiming for less than 20% body fat.

I'm not successful at losing or maintenance, yet, but I do have interesting tools. LOL.

I was using Libra for Android until the turn of the year. play.google.com/store/apps/details?i
d=
net.cachapa.libra


After that, I got a Withings scale: vitrine.withings.com/us/ws-30.html . Best tool ever. It makes weighing every day and logging a cinch since I don't actually have to log at all. Then, whenever I care to see my smoothed weight, I just grab my cell phone or punch up the website. Nice. The only drawback is that it shows BMI on the scale after I weigh (and while I have seen that there's some research that proves me wrong, for the moment I strongly dislike BMI). Anyway I fixed that... I told the website that I'm 1'11" tall. The scale just reads BMI of 99 every day. The website says 400 or something.... useless number is useless. Also, on the topic of useless numbers, I wouldn't recommend wasting money (and probably time) on the one that does BIA for body fat percentage (the "Smart Body Analzyer"). Sure, I used to say, trends blah blah blah..... just forget all that. Useless number is useless.

...and I just ran across a new iphone app yesterday called "Happy Scale" that does the same thing.
