Fitocracy – A Geeky Way to Track Weight Loss

Losing weight can be a challenge, but if you treat it like a quest in a roleplaying game, might actually make working out fun!

I am overweight. Not terribly, but enough that I’m not very happy with my current weight / shape. Add in the fact that I had a c-section with my daughter, and nothing stays in like it’s supposed to anymore. I’ve been trying to lose weight, but it’s hard with such a busy schedule. And I will admit that I can be a procrastinator. It’s hard to make myself work out at the end of the day after I’ve been doing school and my stay at home mom chores.

I’ve been using some online and Android apps to track my weight loss journey, but none of them really helped me stick with my weight loss program. But then I found Fitocracy.

Fitocracy is an online program that allows you to track your weight loss, but it tracks in such as way as if you were the hero in an RPG. Each exercise is worth a certain amount of experience points, so as you exercise you get experience points. Once you get enough points, you rise in level. There are also quests you can go on and achievements you can reach.

I’m currently level 3 and I just finished my first quest. It’s really a neat little program that puts a geeky twist on weight loss. I’m going to continue to use it, so if anyone joins up, friend me!

    1. Message ChaosMandy for an invite, she gets ten with her membership. The regular invite request may take forever.

  1. I really wanted to try this but it was by invitation only. =<

    I sent a request but was wondering how you get on the fast track to get invited to join?

  2. It’s really weird because when I joined up I didn’t need an invitation. If you want to send me your email addresses at eoywin@gmail.com – I’ll try and send you an invitation from my account.

  3. It seems wonderful! I am thinking about subscribe myself, but I would like to know if it allow to track even wii gamercize (fit, easa, step to the beat)…
    And I would like to know how much writing skills it requires, as my English is really bad.

    1. Usually these tracking weight loss websites don’t have entries specific to say Wii Fit. I just pick what ever is closest to what exercise that I did.

      And there really isn’t any writing required at all 🙂
