This study tested a newly developed weight-loss intervention that aims to help individuals with obesity, who wish to lose weight, to make daily self-weighing a more effective tool for weight loss

The intervention guides participants through a self-regulation process after self-weighing: participants were asked to track their weight measurements using a weight loss tracker and received daily questionnaires asking them to plan a weight loss action for each day. On a weekly basis they were asked to reflect on how their behaviours might explain their weight change and to evaluate the weight loss actions they used throughout the week.
