I haven’t used it before but it does sound like fun!

Good luck with your weight loss – just take it one step at a time and dont beat yourself up too badly if you get a set back one day – just try again the next!

I wanted to do the Zombie run, but I am not a runner (yet) and would feel really embarrassed if I got caught early. But otherwise, it is totally worth the $8. This is going to be my goal for 2013, to run these races.

The app is fun and silly, but not worth the $8.  It just tells you when there are “zombies” in the area where you are running.

By the way, congrats on committing yourself to this healthier lifestyle!  If you’re interested in running, lots of areas have running groups that are geared to all levels.  Great motivation!

It’s an awesome app! I LOVE that app! Okay, so I just got it yesterday. I am NOT a runner by ANY means, but I ran/jog/walked 2 miles in 30 minutes on the treadmill yesterday and really enjoyed the story. It really helps to create goals for you, and it’s really neat how they mix it in with your music too. I listen to a lot of soundtracks (right now, it’s Doctor Who Season 5) which was awesome, because when it came time to run, I had this crazy, being-chased music to go along with it! 

It IS pricey, but I love zombie sort of stuff (avid Left 4 Dead 2 player) and my officemates already were giving it a great review. I like also that your town and missions grow the more you run.

If you like zombies, and like the idea of a story to go along with a run, I would recommend it. It’s definitely dependant on how you feel about the game and what you’re willing to spend.

Also, since you’re a gamer at heart, I think you would probably enjoy the game. 🙂

I’m so sorry you are having a hard time.  The diet part is the worst for me for sure.  It will come with time.  Are you tracking your food using an app or anything?

I don’t know if the Zombie app is worth it, there are other interval apps that are free or less money.

If you had success with Weight Watchers before, did you look into a site like myfitnesspal.com or sparkpeople.com? I know there are bees that are on these sites, they are free and similar to WW in which you log everything you eat. While I commend the change to a healthier lifestyle (and that is the goal, not a diet, but a lifestyle change), if you are still stuffing yourself with healthy food- that can be bad too. 

I recommend checking those sites out, checking the bee for others that are on there for support!

@Zephi:  I used to be a picky eater and I beat it! Every meal I added in one healthy food I hated and one I loved. I had to eat all of what I hated (even if that meant mixing with other foods on my plate) before finishing the good stuff. Eventually I started to like the taste and I now eat things like mixed green salads, asparagus, peppers, mango, pomegranate, and quinoa.

make sure you’re weighing yourself at the same time of day.. I know my weight can fluctuate about 4 lbs depending on what time of day I weigh myself.  also if you’ve just started a new exercise routine or upped your exercise, you’ll probably retain water at first and then it should come off as your body gets used to it.  if you’re really sore you can retain a ton of water weight.
