After years and even decades of ignoring their weight and health, many people are finally starting to pay attention to what they need to do to be healthy. It isn’t always easy, but being fit is becoming more popular and people are willing to try whatever they can to get in shape, which is good news. If you’ve been bitten by the fitness bug, it’s important to set expectations and track your progress, and an online tool called Shrinking will help you to visually see the progress that you’re making.

By setting milestones and tracking your daily weight, Shrinking will provide you with simple graphs to help you truly understand where you’re headed. The site also interacts with some social networks to enable you to share your progress with your friends and followers. The basic features are free, but if you’re willing to spend a few bucks per month, you’ll get access to an online notebook to record your thoughts and a BMI analyzer. Now that you know how to track your progress, all you have to do is figure out how you’re going to lose the weight, which just so happens to be the hardest part of the process to stick to.
