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.

  • Is Instagram Helping People With Dieting?

    A new study by the University of Washington is reportedly looking into how Instagram users turn to posting pictures of food they eat to meet weight loss goals. For the study, researchers conducted interviews with at least 16 Instagram users who consistently record and share photos of what they eat. Participants in the study reportedly talked about the benefits of using Instagram to achieve their diet and fitness goals. Christina Chung, a doctoral student at UW, said in a press release, "It's more socially appropriate for people who are trying to track their diets to snap a photo of their plate when they're out with friends -- everyone's doing it and it doesn't look weird."

  • Few Veterans Use Weight Loss Medicine Despite The Need

    UPI reports that a new study shows America's veterans desperately need weight loss management, but few actually pursue treatment. According to the study, approximately 41 percent of veterans are obese and 37 percent are overweight. Obesity can increase the risk of diabetes, depression, hypertension, various cancers, and other chronic conditions. Varsha G. Vimalananda, researcher from the Edith Nourse Roger Memorial Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Massachusetts said; "The comparably low rates of use of medicine in and outside the VA are surprising- Insurance coverage is a major barrier to use outside the VA, but it is a much lesser issue in VA, where veterans can receive them at no or relatively low out-of-pocket cost." Veterans with the greatest need for weight loss medications have a high body mass index, obstructive sleep apnea, low back pain, alcohol dependency or osteoarthritis.

  • Weight Loss Surgery Outcomes For Teens Versus Adults

    Gastric bypass surgery has been producing successful and sustained health outcomes for adults for decades, but research shows it may not be quite as effective for teens. UPI reports that after having weight loss surgery, a group of teens with obesity were able to shed 26 percent of their body weight, while the adults with obesity dropped 29 percent of their excess weight. While not a huge disparity between the two age groups, it remains a clinically significant gap.
