I had an injury-filled 2008 season and gained a few pounds. So I used an app called Lose It!, and I counted everything I ate. You put in your goal and your exercise and you stick to it, and the weight comes off as planned. Some people like to do that stuff, some don’t. There’s an app for everything these days, and if that’s going to help you stay on track, I absolutely encourage it.
