Raise your hand if you hate getting on the scale every morning to measure your weight. Ugh, we hate it. Scales are evil, especially on Monday mornings after a long weekend of parties. How did I manage to gain five pounds in two days? Double ugh.
Looking for a happier way to keep track of your weight losses and gains? The Happy Scales app for iPhone ($0.99) aims to motivate your weight loss goals by creating a positive environment to keep track of your weight. Or, if you are one of the lucky ones who need to gain weight, you can use this perky app too.
Basically, you start by setting up the app with a motivational picture that will make you smile when you log-in each day. You can use one of the twelve healthy photos they have selected like a runner on the beach or use a photo of your own. Maybe a photo of those skinny jeans you have been dying to get back into? You select your perfect/ideal weight and then enter your weight that day. The simple app shows your motivational photo and an inspirational message each day along with your total lost, current weight, and an estimated date of when you will reach your goal weight. It will cheer you on day by day and there is an optional passcode selection if you do not want others to see your weight goals.
In a complicated world, Happy Scales is one simple weight-loss app that might just help you reach your goals.
