Lose It! Online: Review

I love the new online interface for "Lose It!" with one huge exception: It does not allow me to post a link to my profile. To share my log with someone, they have to become my friend. That seems cumbersome and silly. FitDay offered a sharable link to the profile and I think that it would be useful for LoseIt! to do the same.

It does allow you to create and print some very slick reports, which would be great for sharing with a trainer or dietician. This is a really nice feature. I love the exercise summary (see above), which adds up the time you spent doing each activity and gives you a running calorie count.

I am finding it a drag to log both in Weight Watchers and this, so I will probably just use this one as an activity log and keep tracking my points in Weight Watchers online. I have a little hope that one of the changes coming next week might be some changes to the online logging for WW Mobile -- it would be nice if there were activity summaries and options to share your logs there.

Tuesday is my meeting, but since I'm an online member, I expect to see the changes tomorrow in my log. I'll be curious to see what they are and hear what other Weight Watchers think about them.

  1. I'll have to check this out. I've just been using eTools.

    I started a blog myself. I'd love it if you would check it out and give me some feedback.
