After using the Withings Internet connect scale for the past two years, I’ve found it to be a useful companion in my daily battle to maintain my weight. There’s something about hopping on the scale and having it measure my weight and body fat %, and then calculate my BMI…all while I stand there looking down at my toes!
And the fact that it “automagically” uploads this to my online weight chart makes it even better. Seeing where you’ve been seems to give me an extra boost to try to maintain my current weight. Unlike the “out of sight, out of mind” way many of us treat our weight, I like seeing it laid out in a colorful graph. If I’m starting to trend back up in weight, it makes me get a little more vigilant in controlling my portions at meal time. It also gives me a bit more drive to stick to my morning run, even when I’m not in the mood.
