WEIGHT MANAGER 101

  • the first weight you logged with the app, is 69, on January 10th, 2017
  • your latest weight is 66, entered on July 3rd, 2018
  • therefore, since you started logging your weight with the app, you lost 3, or 4.35% of your weight
  • the penultimate weight is 67.5, entered on July 1st, 2018
  • your latest weight is 66, entered on July 3rd, 2018
  • therefore, the most recent change in your weight is a drop of 1.5 or 2.22%
  • you tap the + button to enter your weight on the current date
  • if you’ve already entered your weight on the current date and realize you entered a wrong value, you just tap the + button (on the current date) to enter the correct amount (you can’t change the weights entered on past days)

above the first card, is a summary strip:

looking at the screenshot above:

  • from the start date you selected to measure your weight change until the current date, your weight went down,
  • your weight is unstable,
  • so far, the number of times your weight went down is greater than the number of times it went up (your weight goes down more often than it goes up)

you can tap those labels or icons for a short description

say, on June 15th, 2018 you start a diet or a physical activity regimen and want to know its impact on your weight. Let’s assume you next log your weight on June 16th and the last time you logged your weight was on June 10th, 2018:

  • you tap the pencil icon
  • select June 10th, 2018 as the start date to calculate your weight change (the date closer to the day you start that regimen)
  • now, as days go by and you log your weight, page FROM-TO WEIGHT CHANGE of the app, is gonna show you how much your weight changed so far, since you started that regimen

(alternatively, you can log your next weight on the same day you start that regimen (June 15th, 2018) and the next time you log your weight, you tap the pencil icon and select June 15th, 2018 as the start date)

another example:

you want to know how much your weight will change in spring. You just tap the pencil icon, select the last date you logged your weight during winter and you’ll know how much your weight changed, so far, in spring

difference between the first page of the app and the second one:

  • the first one shows you the change in your weight within a predefined time frame
  • while on the second page, you decide the start date to measure your weight change (the same goes for the last page of the app where you can tap and hold any weight line on the list, to see your weight change from the date on that line and the latest date on which you logged your weight)

  • so far, you weight has been unstable (on average it differs from the average weight by more than 5%)
  • your weight is between 64.7 and 74.6 (on average, meaning some of the weights you logged might be beyond that range of values)
  • your latest weight is 66, not to far away from your average weight of 69.7
  • on average, your weight differs from your average weight by almost 5 or 7.1% of your average weight, which means your weight is unstable but not too much

that icon in the bottom right-hand corner, appears only if you entered weight on at least two years, and allows you to see past data

  • so far, your weight has gone up 8 times and down 12 times: you lose weight more often than you gain it
  • but, on average, when your weight goes up you gain more weight (4.2) than the weight you lose (4) when your weight goes down

this screen shows up when you tap the icon on the first card on UPS AND DOWNS page

assuming that the third quarter is up or almost up:

  • your weight has almost always gone down in the second quarter (10 times versus twice in the third quarter)
  • it’s gone up only in the second quarter (8 times)
  • in the second quarter, your weight went down by 10, in the third quarter it went down by 1.5 only: the vast majority of weight that you lost so far in the year, you lost in the second quarter

if you tap the icon on the second card on UPS AND DOWNS page, you’ll see the quarterly distribution of the number of times you gained weight and the share over the total number of times your weight has gone up, so far in the year:

  • around the end of the year, that table tells you if there’s any quarter where a lot of weight increases are concentrated: is there any quarter where your weight tends to go up?

if you tap the icon on the third card on UPS AND DOWNS page, you’ll see the quarterly distribution of the number of times you lost weight and the share over the total number of times your weight has gone down, so far in the year

  • the weight in red, is the highest
  • the weight in green, is the lowest
  • the percentages in orange, refer to changes greater than 5%
  • blue icon: tap it to see the highest and lowest weights
  • red icon: tap it to see all the changes is your weight that are greater then 5%
  • share icons: you can share your weight history via the app, with your doctor, dietician or anyone else (if sharing by tapping the red icon doesn’t work, you can tap the green icon and than tap and hold on the text field where you want to send out content and select ‘paste’)
  • you can tap and hold on any line on the list to see the change in your weight from the date in the selected line and the latest day on which you logged your weight

reminder to log your weight

  • you have to install the app’s home widget, for that reminder to work
  • tap on ‘logging reminder’
  • if you want to be reminded to log your weight every, say, 10 days, you enter 10

alert of weight change

  • say, your goal is to lose 10 kg (pounds)
  • the app can alert you when your goal is met
  • you tap on the icon next to the page label at the top of the screen and then on ‘weight change alert’
  • enter 10
  • tap ‘down’
  • now, as days go by and you log your weight, when you enter a weight more than 10 lower than the weight that was the latest entered at the time you set up that alert, you’ll get a notification that shows you how much weight you lost

another example:

  • say, you want to be alerted when your weight goes up by more than 10, so you can adopt countermeasures to get back to previous weight levels
  • you tap on ‘weight change alert’
  • enter 10
  • tap ‘up’

you can install the app’s widget if you want to have on your screen at all times:

  • the latest day on which you logged your weight
  • the next date you decided to log your weight (come that day, you’ll get a notification) (you have to set up the reminder to log your weight, for that info to be shown)
  • your weight the last time you weighed yourself

if you want to be reminded to log your weight after any number of days of your choosing, you must install that widget
