Millions of Americans will sign up for the gym over the next few weeks trying to reach their weight loss goals. You need to choose a program that works for you, your lifestyle, your weight loss goals, and your schedule. Don’t try to do it all at once small steps, and goals goes a long way.
A support system is a great way to start. So visit the Weight Weight Room @ shrinktheplanet-weight loss.com and find the support you need. The thing to remember is that you are not alone, there are many people in your same situation that have accomplished their goals. Learn from other people, it is very powerful. You got a New Year’s resolution and if you don’t have the support you need your gonna get tired of it after two or three weeks.

Another good way to get a head start on your weight loss goals is by making it a family affair. Go to the park, take your dog for a walk, have the whole family go play some basketball or soccer.
The key to success is making a lifestyle change that will fit into your life. You need to set smaller goals, and identify those goals every week and measure them this will make you accountable for acheiving them?
Smaller goals is easier to stick to the resolution, but the commitment needs to be there.
Tracking your daily food and exercise is a great idea if you are trying to lose weight.

Using a weight loss tracker gives you the ability to really customize your food and exercise workouts that are uniquely suited to your weight loss goals.
It will identify those pitfalls that have sabotaged those diets that have failed in the past. This is the kind of information that helps you over come those weight challenges because your are now identifying the areas that have prevented you from losing weight in the past.

Dieting has gone Digital: High Tech Calorie Trackers can really help you slim down!
Take the guesswork out of your weight loss program with Body Media Fit. This Multisensor monitor tracks over 9,000 variables every minute of the day so you know precisely how many calories are coming in and how many are going out. It also tracks how well you're sleeping. A recent four month study suggests the device could help you lose two to three times more weight than dieting alone.
Knowledge is power:
It is very easy to lose track of how many calories you consume daily, and you never really know how many of those calories you burn. This device will tell you how many calories you burn in a day, not just in your workouts. And wow, you will be so surprised at how many calories you take in. Those calories really add up though out the day. Knowing your caloric intake isn't a bad thing at all, this device actually counts calories and they sure do add up. It also tracks and moderates activities, walking/running, biking, and vigorous activities — an intense hill climbing cycling workout. You will know when to kick it up a notch! You will also learn about your sleep patterns — it accurately tracks how restful your snoozes are.
Dieting by numbers:
With this program, you can target a safe and realistic daily caloric deficit. You will understand the effects of your diet. If you are not eating enough, your body will go into fat storing mode — we all want to avoid this problem. There's great nutritional information on the foods in the BodyMedia database. It breaks down daily totals of each nutrient and this feature really helps monitor sugar consumption. However, the food database is limited and there's not much in the way of ethnic foods or grocery store brands. Be prepared to enter information for your most eaten foods into the personal "My Foods" database; but once this is done you can easily select from a list of frequently eaten foods which makes calorie tracking easy and quick.
The web site is easy to navigate and understand, plus syncing the data from the armband with a PC or Mac is easy. But no official support for Safari 5.0 — come on now! That said, it seemed to work fine when running Safari on the Mac. There is no iPhone/iPad app and this would be extremely helpful for effectively entering calories consumed when out in the world. If not an app, a mobile web portal would do the trick. I think they should add a water consumption tracking to the foods page; hydration so important for weight loss.
This could be a really helpful weight loss tool to help you achieve your goals.
