Now that New Year’s Resolutions are well in our rear view mirrors, it would be easy to just forget they ever happened. If you are like ninety percent of the general public, you probably decided that this would be the year that you finally drop those extra pounds that have been following you around for the last few years. The trick is, how do you go about doing this as effectively as possible?
The good folks over at Weight Watchers have heard your concerns and released an update to their popular app, custom designed to help make shedding a couple of extra pounds that much easier. Like most software of this kind, the base application is free, but in order to get the full featured functionality, users must sign up for Weight Watchers’ online service. That said, it does offer a fairly substantial taste of the proverbial honey, to those that are not willing to pony up initially.

While yes, this is a pretty solid featureset for the tightwads among us, it is nothing compared to what the full subscribers will receive. Some of the special abilities granted to those with deep pockets include the ability to track their points from within the application, access to over thirty-one thousand recipes, and guides for making smart meal choices.
For the hefty among us looking to shed a few much needed pounds, this might be just what the doctor ordered! So why not give it a download and see what you think? Afterall, even if you are trying to lose weight, the first taste is always free.
