Results Without The Weight: The ZERO Scale {Review}

ZERO Scale logoWhen it comes to weight loss, I think everyone would agree that it's pretty much a roller coaster ride. There are ups, there are downs, and hopefully by the time you reach your destination, the results are positive.

So what can you do to help increase your chances of success? As well as diet, exercise, information, support and more, staying confident is a major factor. Personally, as soon as I see that number on the scale, my mind starts to play tricks on me, taunting me that it's never going to go down.

But you can't focus on losing weight if you don't keep track of what you weigh, right? So how do you avoid seeing that glaring number on the screen? The answer is The ZERO Scale from Great Valley Innovations, an incredibly innovative new way to track your progress. Being proud of your weight loss accomplishments has never been easier!

The Zero ScaleDedicated to the invention and innovation of products and services to help you transform your life in the easiest and fastest ways possible, Great Valley Innovations knows what it takes to get healthy. As the creators of The ZERO Scale and The ZERO Excuses Fitness Network, they have helped solve the issues that we all face in the battle with weight loss.

After constantly seeing their family members', fitness clients' and friends' best intentions for a healthier lifestyle falling short time and time again, Great Valley Innovations set out to understand why. What they discovered was that those intentions were being undermined by frustration from the total number they were seeing when they stepped on a traditional bathroom scale. Although the goal of getting in shape was there, it was seeing the total weight that emotionally overshadowed the small changes, even when things were actually going well.

So how is The ZERO Scale different? This revolutionary new concept changes the entire dynamic of how we see ourselves by disconnecting from 'total weight', and connecting to the immediate achievements and improvements instead. Instead of seeing your actual weight flash before your eyes every morning, you're able to track your progress with small increments of loss or gain instead.

Is that helpful? I was ready to find out!

The Zero Scale reviewRight away I was impressed with the thin, sleek design of The ZERO Scale and the way that the 12.5" x 12.5" modern, glass surface would fit beautifully in any decor. After glancing at the step-by-step user guide, I was glad to see that set up was easy and there was nearly no programming to be completed.

The Zero Scale reviewWith a smart memory feature that can store information for four different users (plus a guest mode marked with an * in case you want to take a peek at your actual weight or use this as a traditional scale), once you have stepped on The ZERO Scale for an initial setting, you're ready to track your progress each time you step on again with the tap of your toe and the selection of your individual profile.

The Zero Scale reviewWhether you are trying to lose weight, gain muscle mass, or maintain your current fitness level, each time you use The ZERO Scale, it will conveniently show you your loss/gain along with "days since last check" and "total days since you started." This is not only convenient, but extremely motivating!

Instead of focusing on your weight and that number (and seeing just how far away it is from the number that you'd rather be seeing), I love that The ZERO Scale instead turns your interest to how you look and feel. Whether you step on each day or once a week, the large and bright 1.3" digital LCD display makes it easy to see your progress.

The Zero Scale review
I didn't actually lose 46 pounds, I just wanted to show a change right away. I can dream though, right?

In my time using The ZERO Scale, I've been yet to be disappointed in its performance, ease of use, or simply the way that it can remember my weight without actually revealing it. Although it hasn't made me forget my desire to lose the extra pounds, the unique "results without the weight" aspect has allowed me to focus on how far I've come and not so much of how far I still have to go (which can often seem unattainable).

I appreciate that it has an easy-to-reach reset button right on the top in case you need to change users or start from scratch...

The Zero Scale review...and the addition of The Zero Scale Pedometer is a great way to give you an extra push to help get you moving throughout the day.

The Zero Scale reviewIf you're looking for a way to keep your motivation and intentions to get in shape going strong, this just might be the thing for you. The ZERO Scale's high quality design and construction (and 397 pound weight capacity) can provide lasting value and its innovative ability to let you track your progress can keep you on-track and feeling great.
