Luuze’s dashboard helps you understand if you are making progress on your weight loss journey, or if you need to make adjustments. If you don’t fully understand how trend weight works, however, the numbers may not align with your expectations of what they should be. Here’s an explanation of what all the lines on the chart mean.
- The first number (Trend Weight) is the trend weight, which is Luuze’s representation of what your weight truly is. It can often be a number that is higher than your scale weight, but because of this, it is also a number that does not jump up when you retain a lot of water and your weight spikes up. The fact that it goes up and down far less than the scale weight is how Luuze helps you stick with the journey. Read more about trend weight and how the scale lies. On the chart, this number corresponds with point A on the diagram.
- The Trend Change is the difference in trend weight between the current measurement and the previous measurement. Generally, if this number is negative, you are losing weight. If the number is positive, you may be gaining weight. On the chart, this number corresponds to B minus A on the diagram.
- Today’s goal is how much you should weigh today if you want to reach your goal by the date that you put into Luuze, assuming your weight loss was constant. Comparing this number to the trend weight can be extremely powerful, allowing you to use simple rules to manage your weight. On the chart, this number corresponds to C on the diagram.
- lb (or kg) Ahead of Goal is how many lb (or kg) you are ahead, or behind your goal. This number corresponds with C minus A on the diagram. Note that this is a comparison of your current trend weight to today’s goal, not a comparison of your scale weight.
- The Scale 2-Week Best is the lowest scale weight you have weighed in the past 14 days. On the chart, this number corresponds to the gray dot D on the diagram.
- Scale Lost Past 30 days is how much weight you have lost, in scale weight.
- Lost All Time is how much weight you have lost, in scale weight.
Note that all of these numbers, if tapped, will provide an explanation of the dashboard item, and will also allow you to customize the item to something else if needed.
