In August 2012, Jennifer Layden,38, decided to make serious weight loss. “I’m tired of having to wear plus size clothes. In my town does not have many choices for bigger women, I hate what I like clothes, I had to wear, “says Jennifer. She wants her two young daughters, a role model 8-11. “I don’t want to embarrass my kids overweight mother, not things they do. My self esteem is low, I feel invisible.
Jennifer knew she needed a change, so she decided to try MyFitnessPal. “It’s so easy to keep track of the huge food database and scanners for food,” she said. “Before I start losing weight, I am not all exercise, unless the whole family to the Zoo or something. I eat too many calories-many candies, including chocolate, pastry, ice cream-and not enough real food. MyFitnessPal help me with my food and nutrition, because it showed me what level of macro-and micro-nutrients to focus on. Forums are also very helpful whenever I had a question. Finally, my diet is not too drastically change. I took the IIFYM–macro if it suits you, so I’m not against anything from my diet. “
A couple of weeks to kick off her weight loss journey, Canada’s mother bought the Fitbit. “I would like to start tracking my activity and calories. I soon began to use it 24/7 and had a crush on my statistics tracking, and goal setting. I start with the Fitbit Ultra, now have one, this is awesome. It is so small and discreet! I would love to see my calories throughout the day, knowing that I am on track with my activities, “says Jennifer.
In less than two years of tracking food and exercise her, Jennifer made a huge milestone. “As of March 30, 2014, I lost 75 pounds. It’s hard to believe me that being overweight–it is a lot of excess fat, no person, let alone a man 5′ 2 ″! , “She said. “I went from 18/20 jeans and size 10 jeans and small to medium shirt size 2XL shirt.”
Jennifer to stay in shape for a walk today. “When I started using Fitbit, and it sure makes me want to add more activities into my day. I started walking 2 km [1.2 miles] every time I go out, and now I walk at least 10 km [6.2 miles] per session, and I am now 16 kilometers (about 10 miles) max. I also tried some home DVD campaign and use the treadmill interval, but I prefer walking outside to others. 95% around in my daily exercise. “
Jennifer admits serious worries about her health was the best thing she did for herself and her family. “I love MyFitnessPal Fitbit to me. I couldn’t have achieved such success without them! “
