Best Weight Loss and Fitness Apps

Is your New Year Resolution to lose weight? Exercise more?

Yeah, me too! 

The advantage we have in 2014 is our abundance of technology.  By utilizing our smartphones and tablets, we have more tools available to us than ever to be successful. 

I do have to plug MY own e-book that has just been published on Amazon as well! It is full of printable planners and trackers PLUS a great list of healthy recipes! Check Weight Loss Smart Planner: Tools you Need to Succeed in Losing Weight out for Kindle! 

Weight Loss Smart Planner: Tools You Need to Succeed in Losing Weight



NOW… Here are some of the best apps I have found for Android and Kindle 

FREE Apps 

63 Simple Weight Loss Tips  “This app features useful tips and ideas from my own experience, and from various other people, who shared them in person, on forums, social media sites etc. Most of the tips are common sense, but when written down, they provide a lot of “aha” moments. The benefit is that it allows you to verify that the activities you are performing are aligned with what really works.”


Calorie Counter and Diet Tracker by MyFitnessPal I personally use this app and love it and know many others who do to.  It is simple to track your food, plus you can link other fitness apps to it to help you track your exercises!  Add your friends and instantly create a motivational group to help support you in your weight loss.
