Zero Scale – Weighing in a Little at a Time

var fbShare = {size: ‘small’,}

From Thanksgiving to the new year is a month plus of challenges in the weight department of my life.  I try and be good, but somehow…well many of you know how that goes.  Sometimes seeing the number on the scale can be discouraging.

Rather than seeing a whopping 3 digit number, I think it’s more helpful to my efforts to see progress even if it’s just a little bit, or even if I gain – it’s hard to take if I see the scale move up, even if it’s just a pound.

A couple of weeks ago I received an innovative product that is slowly changing the way I look at weighing myself.

This product is a Zero Scale.

I love this scale.  The Zero Scale set-up process is easy.  Simply step on the scale and it immediately starts tracking your weight – without revealing the total number.  (Nothing like stepping on the scale and seeing you weigh ‘0’!)  The next time you step on the scale, only the amount of weight lost or gained appears.  It also tracks progress since your first weigh-in displaying total pounds lost or gained and the number of days since the first use.  Such a neat feature!

Take a peek at this short two minute video I made showing how it works.

One of the things I like best about this scale is that it weighs in .2 lb increments (the scale also weighs in kg if that is your preferred measure).  That is helping me ‘mentally’ when weighing.  I get excited even with a .2 lb loss, and I don’t get so upset if I just gain .2 lbs.  Not being able to see that ‘large’ number helps me put the loss or gain in perspective.

I’ve heard many times that you aren’t supposed to weigh yourself daily due to the normal fluctuations of your body.  Water retention can really skew your weigh in results.  With the Zero Scale I don’t feel the need to weigh myself daily, since I know it remembered the weight I first stepped on the scale and it lets me know my progress from that date.

Another great thing about the Zero Scale is that it is very accurate.  Our other scale was pretty good, but you’d have to stand on it a number of times to get a couple of readings that matched.  I’ve tried using the ‘regular’ scale (yes if you want to see your actual weight you can just weigh yourself normally) setting on the Zero Scale and when I stepped on it two or three times in a row it always says the same weight.

Here are some other things to know about the Zero Scale:

• Has profiles for 4 users and a guest mode
• 1.3” LCD display
• 397 lb/180 kg weight capacity
• 12.5” x 12.5” platform
