I can see the future.
Puns intended. Like most people I have many ups and downs with my weight. I’ve always been in the plus size weight range, and I love my body, however I do acknowledge that being on the lower end of the PS spectrum is much more beneficial to my overall health. So when life hands you pounds you’ve got to make lemon water, its number crunching time. However, I can do just about everything right but once I see the number on my scale start trickling up or plateauing (even if just for a day or two) I lose most if not all motivation. My mood for my entire day can be adjusted by that dumb little number on the scale.
The moving average is amazing for someone like me. It’s helped me stay on track and not get discouraged. I’m also a huge HUGE fan of the milestones section I love that it lets you know what your percentage is until you reach your next milestone, and if you gain a few oz that percentage won’t go down, again helping to not discourage. I’ve never stayed with a weight tracking app as long as I’ve been using Happy Scale and I ain’t going anywhere but down. I Love This App!

Goal Oriented - This App is for You!
Over the past few years, through stress eating, I had put on about 40 pounds. Two years of dieting only put on more weight. Happy Scale provided an visual and goal oriented alternative to other apps or programs. I set my goal at my target weight (about 40 pounds), with a lofty goal of three pounds a week. The app then breaks your goal into smaller goals. I chose 10 smaller increments. It given you an expected target weight date and a target date for each smaller goal. When you lose, an animated meter appears showing your progress. After weighing each morning I was able to put in my weight and see my progress. Gain a few pounds? The only way it shows up is on your graph. Your smaller goals still remain the same. I am proud to say that 7 months I have not dieted, but worked to change my eating habits all to meet small weight loss goals. It is much easier to work at losing 4 pounds than 40 pounds on a daily basis. I am now down 40 pounds with only a few more pounds to go. Thank you happy scale for making weight loss charting easy and fun!

Happy Scale makes me happy!
I have never been one to weigh myself more than once a week. Usually less than that(I guess that's how the weight creeped on me to begin with). It's really interesting to see how much your weight fluctuates. The number on the scale is almost psychological. If my weight goes up a pound in a day when I know I didn't eat nearly enough for that to make sense, I will still get discouraged, but then I look at my moving average and it has gone down even though my weight on the scale went up.
I noticed this is how my weight fluctuates throughout the month. I get to a new low weight and then it increases 1-3 pounds until maybe a week later it drops off and I reach a new low weight. I have lost 6.5 pounds this month! It's a little bit, but it's more than I've been able to do before this app. I also like the milestones. It's better than going "Ah, I need to lose 30 pounds." I have it broken up into 10 milestones. I have passed two and have eight more to go! A very simple interface but highly effective! I recommend this app to anyone!
