This is the most encouraging, motivating tracker I’ve used!

Nearly a decade ago, I lost 40 lbs over the course of a year through food tracking and using a pedometer. Then I had two babies, my weight climbed, and with my childbearing years behind me I wanted to get serious about losing the excess weight once again. Last time I did this, I tracked daily weights for data gathering, but found it so hard to trust in the general trend when the number on the scale jumped around by as much as 5 pounds day to day, and sometimes seemed just stalled on a certain number. I remember how discouraging it would feel some days, and I needed extra willpower not to sabotage my progress and self soothe with pints of ice cream. This time around, I started my fitness journey with confidence in my ability to do this because I did it once before, but I really wanted to find a weight tracking app that would tell me more about the real time movement of my trend based on the data points I fed in. Happy Scale is EXACTLY what I was looking for. I love this app! It really takes the sting out of fluctuating daily weigh ins, and keeps me feeling motivated and in control of my journey. Highly recommend this app. Well worth paying for the premium features. I’m 20 lbs down since the COVID pandemic hit, and hoping to be at my goal weight of 150 by the end of the calendar year 2020. Thank you, Happy Scale!

Happy scale, happy user

Hey there :)
I just wanted to write and say how much I love this app. I have downloaded probably 40 or 50 different weight tracking apps and every single one was a flop. I attribute a huge amount of my success in weight loss to your little icon (and obviously the app it opens 😉). I’ve battled eating disorders, I’ve tried every diet and eating trend, and I have always felt my scale lurking in the corner. Whether it was there tempting me to see if that 15 minute bike ride helped me lose 1/2 a pound from my previous weight, or mocking me to let me know how much weight I’d gained from the 9 fast food meals I’d had that week. The scale was never my friend. Now this may seem silly, but your app name was what attracted me, happy scale. The little icon is so simple but I couldn’t help thinking “awwww that little face wants me to succeed”. Then, through using the app I realized something: weight trends. Over the months I started noticing patterns. I wasn’t just a fatty McFatfat. This little app gave me a happy place to see that it wasn’t always one step forward two steps back. I love the color schemes, I love the set up, I love watching the trends change when I log a new weight. There are so many wonderful aspects of Happy Scale thank you so much!!

Best weight tracking app on the market

This has been the most influential weight loss app I think I’ve ever used! I lost ~50 lbs while using it, and while of course the app isn’t completely responsible it played a huge role. One of my big hang ups with weight loss is that when I see that I have gained weight, I get discouraged, even though we have completely normal fluctuations everyday and so many factors can contribute at any given moment (food weight, water retention, hormones, etc.). Happy scale let’s you see past that, and see that despite a slight increase on the scale you are still on track, which keeps me encouraged to keep going.

The only thing preventing me from giving this app a 5 star rating is what happens once you’ve reached your goal weight. I have now reached my goal weight, and use happy scale to make sure I am on track with maintaining. However, even if you are below your goal weight, if you lose weight the app tells you your trends have “improved” and that you have “made progress”. This is a very bad mindset, and encourages disordered habits. If I lose more weight I will be underweight! That should not be encouraged.

If the developers could find a way to make this language more neutral, I would happily change my rating to a 5 star (and even without would still give it 4.5 if given the option!).

Developer Response ,

Hi! The way you described your experience with the scale resonates with me so much, and that was a big part of my motivation to make this app! I'm so happy to hear about your great work and that this app could be a part in your journey. That's great feedback about how that "improvement" feature comes across when people are no longer working towards a goal weight! I will make a note to address that in a future update. In the meantime, could you please disable it with: Settings tab, Appearance, Animation, and then turn off "Animations don't begin until I tap to release them. - Kind regards, Russ
