I need better scales for weighing myself!

  1. I need better scales for weighing myself!


    The scales I've been using are nothing fancy - Health-o-Meter, digital, my feet barely fit on the thing, and it's extremely difficult to get the bloody thing to settle & give me an actual number - how *accurate* it might be is another question altogether.

    What scales y'all using, and how do you like them? If you're thinking of upgrading, what brands/styles are you considering?


  2. scales are full of lies!!! what's wrong with the mirror?

  3. because eyes are full of lies, too - and harder to compensate for than numbers. numbers aren't everything, but without any numbers at all, we're just guessing, and that's not good enough for me.

    therefore, scales.

  5. get a 5 lbs dumbbell and see how much it is off, then add/subtract the amount its off by

  6. I'm getting the impression there's no reason to prefer one make or type of scale over another.

    My complaint w/ the one I have (again) is that it takes some careful positioning (and careful standing) to get a reading - and that's complicated, as just a few minutes ago, I could stabilise the reading @ 194#...and @ 179#...and 183#...(it weighed a 15# dumbbell @ 15#).

    If there's no better solution, I'll skip searching for another & continue as I have been.

    (Adams: you said it better than I did - thanks!)
