Sarah Hemphills thoughts on the Shapa Scale
Do you ever get anxiety stepping on the scale? Before it even shows a number or before you even step on?
What does that number represent?
For some it’s a daily reminder of our progress, for others it’s a reminder that they aren’t succeeding the way they want to
It can be really disheartening to see numbers fluctuate and for some people this can be a very triggering event
Sometimes causing disordered eating or even mental health problems they can’t seem to shake.
I have been there. I am sad to say it, but I used to step on a scale every single morning first thing. I would look at that number, and it set the tone for the rest of my day.
Being someone with body dysmorphia, I would take that 2-3lbs fluctuation, and it would escalate in my head to much more than that.
Even though I know 3-5lbs fluctuation is 100% natural and normal, it wouldn’t matter
It got to the point I swore I would never step on a scale again. It was better for my mental health..
THEN!! I found this company. I resonated so much with their messaging and how they help people, I just had to see for myself.
I present to you. Shapa. A unique scale where there are no numbers involved. Developed by a professor of psychology and behavioral economics, this scale uses your bodies natural weight fluctuations to give you a color instead of a number.
With these colors you can use their app that will personalized missions, badges, and even help you eat more mindfully.
You get daily reminders to keep you on track. You will weigh in each day, but be met with a color that will tell you if you’re moving in the right direction for your goals. This helps you be more aware and keep progressing rather than focused on a number.
This is a totally new way of keeping yourself on track with your health, fitness, and weight goals. A tool that can integrate into your life that is cheaper than a gym membership!
I look forward to giving a scale to every one of my new clients moving forward!
