Garrett Murray on his Weight Loss

One thing that’s important to note is that I need data and gadgets to make diet and exercise fun and trackable. I’m not one of these people who just watches what they eat and then runs here and there. I need hard data to know exactly what I’m doing, to set and meet goals, and because, frankly, I like gadgets.

This is why I think LoseIt.com has been so valuable to so many people. Just seeing the graph go down is motivation to keep heading in the right direction. Same with Nike+. It turns fitness into a game.
