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!
