One of my favorite apps

I’ve struggled with weight my entire adult life, and I love having data, so this app is pretty much perfect for me. Seeing the normalized trend, the rates, and various ways of projecting out into the future is incredibly reassuring and insightful. I can’t give this app high enough praise!

If I could ask for one feature request, it would be a way to mark a date as a breakpoint in the trend. For example, I went on a week-long trip and by the scale weight I gained six pounds (it was AWESOME). I’d love to be able to not normalize across that range of time, and instead set the beginning of the trip, meaning the last date of regular weigh-ins, as the end of a trend line and start a new one upon returning. This would make it easier to appreciate the different phases of weight change overtime, or to see more discretely how a change in diet or regimen effects weight.

Another example: I recently started intermittent fasting and my weight trend is very different. I’d love to be able to pin that date and the moving average trend leading up to it, because now my prior moving averages are all sliding down and I can’t see a clean break in the moving average where I started IF. The scale weight tells the story well, but the moving average smooths it out too well.

Thanks for the suggestions! I think it would make a lot of sense to add something like that someday. Greetings from a fellow IFer. - Russ

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!
