Chart Your Progress With Openfit's New Weight Tracker
Charting changes in weight on your way to your goals can be a tedious task. That’s why we’ve simplified it for you with the new weight tracking feature in the Openfit app.
Combined with meal tracking, live daily workouts, and a variety of on-demand workout programs tailored to your goals, this new functionality makes Openfit an every-app for everyone—whether you’re a long-time fitness fanatic or just starting to get active. Now you can better measure and understand your progress, placing all of the tools you need in one place.
How to Use Openfit’s New Weight Tracker
To get started using this feature, you’ll need to be signed up for an Openfit trial or subscription and have the Openfit app downloaded to your mobile device. From there you’ll be prompted to set a goal weight and asked if you want to set weight reminders.
Stay tuned, as we will soon be adding in Apple Health compatibility within the weight tracking feature to make it one step easier to keep up with your progress.
What are the reminders about?
If you choose to receive reminders, you’ll be reminded on certain days to weigh yourself.
What are the Benefits of Tracking My Weight?
Logging your weight consistently will help the app track your progress. It will also help you maintain your motivation to stay consistent with healthy eating and regular exercise.
Is It a Good Idea to Regularly Check My Weight?
The short answer is yes, but how often you should do so depend entirely on you. Studies show that individuals who weigh themselves every day can be successful in losing weight. But daily weigh ins aren’t for everyone—some people benefit more from weighing themselves less frequently (but still regularly). The key is to find a schedule that works best for you.
And don’t fret if you’ve gained a little weight despite working out. There are a handful of reasons why the scale might tick upward (e.g., muscle growth, temporary increase in water weight) that have nothing to do with gaining fat.
Losing weight is an uphill battle (sometimes literally if you’re into hill workouts!), so make sure you’re setting goals that are realistic for you. To that end, keep in mind that healthy, sustainable weight loss amounts to no more than one to two pounds per week.
Whichever way you decide to go about losing weight, track your success and stay positive with Openfit!
