4 Months and 3 Months Down and the Weight Gurus Smartphone Connected Scale Motivating Me

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.


Weigh In: I gained 3.8 pounds bringing my total down to 45 pounds. I had another bad week and really don't have any excuse for it. I just got through a super busy blogging month and my daughter's birthday and just wanted to relax. I am actually surprised I didn't gain more in the past two weeks with the way I have been eating and the lack of formal exercise. 

Nutrition: I really wanted to complete the Skinny Jane diet but really wasn't motivated. It first started with the left over cupcakes and food from my daughter's birthday party. Then I went out a lot and had food outside. I also went to my best friend's birthday party on Saturday and her birthday dinner on Sunday. I ate a lot and very badly.

Exercise: I didn't go out to the gym or get any strength training in.


I really need to get that motivation back that I had early on. Weight Gurus Smartphone Digital Connected Bathroom Scale seems to be getting me back there. I have been using it for a week now and had to write my review early because I think it is so cool! During past weight loss journey's I just wouldn't weigh myself after a bad week because I didn't want to see the number. I actually wanted to weigh myself this week because I wanted to see how much I gained. I wanted to see it so that I could stop that weight gain from getting bigger. I want to see a minus number on the weightless scale so bad that it is motivating me to want to do good this week.


The Weight Gurus scale is a cool, thin, sleek glass scale with a huge back lit display. I love that it gives you the option of seeing weight change or weight number. The coolest  feature is that after you weigh yourself the display shows a code that your smartphone can scan. After your smartphone scans the code it saves your weight and makes all kinds of graphs that you use to track your progress.


Before the Weight Gurus Scale I was getting the weight from my old scale, entering the number on the notes app of my smartphone and then calculating the weight change. This is so much easier because it does all the work for you.
