MyFitnessPal now gives users the option to add progress pictures to their profile, which can be viewed for motivation or shared on social media.
MyFitnessPal, the app that lets you log your foods and count your calories and macros, is now letting users add progress pictures to their profiles.
Progress pictures can be a great source of inspiration; we’re too used to seeing ourselves day in, day out, so weight loss or muscle gain may not be as immediately noticeable. But if you take a look back at pictures over time, or line two up for a side-by-side comparison, you can get a visual representation of your journey.
MyFitnessPal also lets you share these photos on social media if you want to share your accomplishments or inspire others. But this isn’t a requirement; all pictures are private unless you decide otherwise.
When you’re updating your current weight in the app, you’ll have the option to include a progress picture and all you have to do is tap the camera icon. If you’re not in the mood to add a picture there and then, you can go back and add one later. The Progress Gallery then lets you compare your photos side-by-side so you can get a before-and-after view.
Progress Pictures are rolling out on Android and iOS today. The feature will be added to the web client in the near future.
