How To Track Your Weight Loss Without Freaking Out Over The Numbers


Weighing oneself during a weight loss journey can be fraught with peril. While it's important to keep track, it's also important not to lose heart if you've been doing everything right but the scale isn't budging--or even worse, the number is going up. But according to LifeHacker, the iOs HappyScale app can help with that. It focuses on "your best weight," and tells you the big picture: are you losing or gaining? Weight fluctuates depending on whether you’ve eaten, how recently you’ve gone to the bathroom, how hydrated you are, and a bunch of other factors that don’t reflect your actual amount of fat and muscle. So if your best weight was two days ago, that’s what shows up first.

  • Kidney Doctor Warns Keto Dieters Are Shunning The Healthiest Foods In The World
