I need a new scale, do you like yours?
Wednesday, August 29, 2012
My scale is broken (and no I don't mean I think it's lying and I'm really only 150). Today I got on and it said 229. I started at 250 so I was elated! But I wanted to double check since I didn't really believe it. The next time it said 230, so I tried again. Then 233. And lucky try #4 was 236. Since I'm pretty sure I didn't gain 7 lbs in 2 minutes, I'm thinking I need a new scale. This has happened a few times, so it has now fallen outside of the "reliable" category. I really need a little more accuracy, make that consistent accuracy, since I'm having a fabulous time losing weight and the numerical encouragement is huge for me.
Do you like your scale? I'm not asking if you like what it says, so stay focused please. Do you like how it works? Does it seem accurate? Is it useful yet easy to use? Does it give you lots of data? I like the body fat % feature, even though they are usually more like estimates. Sorry SparkPeople, I can't spend $150 on your scale. I'm thinking under $50 is more in line with my budget.
Thanks for your suggestions!
