I recently bought a weighing scale about a week ago. I stepped on it and almost had a heart attack after looking at the figure that evil red line was pointing at. This can't be! I've bought a faulty unit, I'm going to bring it back as soon as I have the chance. But no, the scale is correct and my brain is the one who has grown delusional.

Since then, I have been using Fitnity on my iPod Touch to control my calorie consumption. It's not a Magic Weight Loss App but it keeps me aware if I've been eating way too much throughout the day. The thing I like about it the most is it's interface. Not perfect but definitely prettier than others that it makes me want to use it more. It has built in diets and exercise options that I could follow but which I rarely do.

You have the choice whether to follow a diet or to just compute the calories via it's intuitive (and very pretty) meal calculator. There are also charts and diary logs where you can see your progress and edit previously entered data. It even tracks water intake, mood and of course, your weight. And yes, alleluja, no ads.

Best thing about it, it works offline. Which is invaluable to an iPod Touch user like me who doesn't always have the luxury of being connected to the internet 24/7.

So far, I'm having a blast recording on it everything that I eat. You can record up to six meals a day and the button turns green or red whether you have exceeded the maximum allotted calories for each meal. Same thing with working out, the 'Burned' button turns green whenever there's inputted data on it.

I have yet to find out whether my change in routine will affect my weight. One thing I do vow is that I will fight this God forsaken metabolism if it's the last thing I do.
