«Losing weight is more enjoyable when you don’t feel like you’re going it alone,» says Emalfarb. «Adding in some friendly competition ramps up the motivation even further. It’s a fact that people are more successful when they know others are striving for the same goal right alongside them. That’s why we have put so much effort into building a sense of community at» 

With or without the patented scale, provides a simple, powerful platform for managing any kind of weight-loss contest. Anyone can join an open contest in the open lobby, or use the site’s simple tools to create their own contest and invite others to join up. Players can design contests around any goal, large or small. The site’s interactive dashboard allows players to effortlessly manage weigh-ins and contests, and to issue challenges to friends.

In addition to its intriguing community features, The Weigh Off is destined to make waves by adding a new wrinkle to weight loss competitions in the form of its patented Bluetooth scale. The scale connects to The Weigh Off’s smartphone app, enabling automatic weight entry and video verification.

As most people know, it’s easy to fudge the numbers during a weight-loss contest when there’s no accountability — but nobody wins when the competition isn’t honest. The Weigh Off levels the playing field and strips away the excuses that keep people from maximizing their potential. Scale owners are also eligible to join premium contests and compete for cash and prizes.  

«Motivation is key to losing weight successfully and keeping it off long term,» adds Emalfarb. «Anyone who has lost substantial weight knows that maintenance can be just as challenging as the process of losing pounds. The Weigh Off platform, app and connected scale have been designed so that even ‘maintainers’ can participate and have fun.»

Everyone who pre-orders The Weigh Off will enjoy discounted pricing, along with a branded shirt and phone stand. The scale is expected to ship in January 2018.
