My main exercise is walking but I am not a fast walker. I kept hearing about people who walk a 15 minute mile, but my time was more like 20 minutes per mile. So I installed the free app RunKeeper on my phone. It tells me how far I've gone and maps my route, and best of all it tells me my average speed! I have shaved my time down to less than a 17 minute mile - and I am getting closer to my goal of a 15 minute mile! Woo hoo!

I have used the App named NICE+ weight loss for a period of time, loving the fresh style and the useful known provided every day. It makes me keep motivation through a few simplest tasks specially designed for me each day. All what I need to do is to check whether I finish the tasks for only 3 mins every day. Persistence is the key to lose weight, wish you all be successful here!

I have an app on my ITouch that can send myself text messages. I configure this to send myself messages to motivate me to quit drinking soda as well as getting my daily walk in. The messages come daily and it really helps to have a visual every day to help me remember that I can do this!
The app is called TextMinder and is for sale in the app store on ITunes.
