Where online can I track my weight and/or my menstrual cycle?
May 26, 2014 7:50 AM   Subscribe

I've recently become more interested in the workings and fluctuations of my body, as well as in losing weight. I have been weighing myself daily for the past month, and also recording details of my menstrual cycle for the past couple of months. I have noticed the interplay between these two things as well (I gained 2 pounds during my period and also mid-cycle [possibly ovulation?], and then lost it quickly). I am hoping to find a website (or websites) that will help me track these things and spit back for me interesting and useful data about my body and its trends. I'm especially interested in getting a weight loss trend line, and also seeing a prediction of when my period and ovulation will happen for me each month. I realize that one website may not do both things and I am happy dealing with each phenomenon separately. Any suggestions either for the most useful weight-tracker websites or cycle-tracker websites (or both together!)? Note that I do not have a smartphone so this needs to be online, not an app.

I really like MonthlyInfo for menstrual cycle tracking.

MonthlyInfo here too. You can set it up to send you e-mails or texts alerting you that you're about to ovulate or start your period, and reminding you to enter the data, which is nice!

I use the app OvuView, which tracks those symptoms and many more if desired, and will graph any tracked symptoms together. I know you don't have a phone but you may be able to use the name to find similar functionality.

FertilityFriend is marketed toward women trying to conceive (or not), but it has a ton of useful features I think you would enjoy. Weight tracking is one of them.

Another vote for MonthlyInfo. I also have it email me re: my monthly breast exam. ( I find it helpful to do it at the same stage of my cycle every time)

I use ovuline.com. You can track your cycle as well as your weight, your diet, your sleeping habits, etc.

Seconding Ovuview. Tracks tons of symptoms, you can add your own and plots BBT and weight on graphs together. After about 6 months of data input, it predicts ovulation and your period with crazy accuracy even if you're irregular. It's awesome.
Oh crap, just re-read you don't have a phone.
It may be worth getting a cheap used one and just using it on WiFi for apps.
