Target Weight App Review

I feel as though I am fighting a never ending weight loss battle. I also feel as though its not one I will ever win because when I do get down to the weight that will make me happy, I will then have a new battle, a battle to stay that coveted weight.

I have tried all kind of diets and a few years ago I got down to a weight that I loved, then life caught up to me again and kids happened.

This is not going to be a blog about dieting though (even though I could literally go on for hours about that). This is going to be a blog about a weight loss aid, the Target Weight App.

I think it goes without saying but I am a busy mom (who isn’t, I know). Mamapreneur, inventor, kids belt manufacturer by day and a loving wife, devoted mom and puppy wrangler (or is that devoted pet owner and kid wrangler?) by night so I don’t have a lot of time in my schedule to track my weight, BMI and my goals.

This app is great because it does that for me. The home screen shows me how many pounds I have left to lose as well as how many days I have left to lose them. It shows me my current weight, BMI and even a graph that shows my progress (which I love, because it makes me feel like I have actually done something). Another really neat function of this app is that it will show you how long it will take you to reach you goal at your current rate of weight loss. This app will also sync with the Withings Body Scale, but unfortunately, I don’t have one so I really can’t say how well that side of it works.

This app has become a great accountability partner for me. On the app thumbnail on my phone’s home screen it even has a little red circle with the amount of weight I have to lose to reach my goal. So, basically, I have a little red nag every time I need to use my phone, but that’s ok, I know I need it and hey, I’m down 18 so far! So I am on my way!

Now, if I could find an app that would give me all the nourishment I need without actually having to eat, I’d be set… Oh iPhone gods, where are the good apps when you really need them?

    I LOVE the idea behind this app, and I am going to download it as soon as I click the submit button on this comment. Thank you for mentioning it in the blog!

    I need some accountability… maybe if there’s an app that reaches out and slaps the KFC chicken out of my hand as I’m trying to put it in my mouth… But until then, this app sounds like a good download for me!

  2. I have enjoyed very much reading your blog about TargetWeight. As its founder, I use it daily myself and now I am using the PRO version which does even more but keeps the simplicity and ease of use. I thank you for writing this blog about it and hope that you will get to your target by living your active lifestyle. We are glad to bring some help!
