Excited by a scale

I am anxiously waiting for a scale I ordered to come in the mail today. Can't say that's not surprising to me! I've been using a scale we have at work when I can sneak a weigh in when someone leaves the office! I'm actually looking forward to weighing more consistently and same time of the day!

I haven't posted much here yet, but do read when I get a chance. I have felt a lot of positive changes since re-starting Atkins in May and feels like I'm going full steam ahead with this.

my scale is packed away somewhere because we are remodeling our kitchen. I can't wait to get it back. I know just how you feel.

I need to get a good scale..... I weight everyday at my health club... but that scale will not calibrate right - they have told me that... and in august when I was in my Dr office I weighted 10 less on their scale...

but since I way at my HC I have been going by their scale.... but really I am 10 less.......

what kind of scale did you order.... really need a scale that talks to me for my eyesight is not the best now......

I know what you mean Kath. Although I am trying to weigh less often. It messes with my head if I do it every day! I ordered a 'pro doc' scale and I love it. Wasn't cheap though but it seems accurate and the numbers are big enough I can actually see them!

Diana, I didn't spend much ($25). It's a balancefrom. The reviews on amazon were decent. I had a scale but the weight limit was 300, so it hasn't been of much use to me for a long time. I can't wait until tomorrow to not have to sneak to weigh myself.

I bit the bullet years ago and bought a weighted doctors type scale that you slide the weights on. It is always accurate. However, it doesn't talk!!

did not find a scale at Costco.... they said that they would have some in next month... so went to Kmart... and found one........ I purchased a new scale (funny thing it is a WW scale) it is a glass body analysis scale - for bone mass . body fat. body water. BMI....

I knew that the scale at my HC was way off....... but was really surprise how much off.......

so today I weighted 280.9 a far cry from being in the 290's... was way happy when I saw that........

good news I had weighed 284.8 on Friday when I got the scale... and today 280.9 so I had a good whoosh....... have been eating really clean.... I think I got my mind-set again.... the past two weeks... was not eating all that clean...but now with this scale... it has made me want to work hard... so it is a good thing....

I Like my Tanita scale. I got it maybe 6 years and it is still accurate.

I have a Tanita and an EatSmart scale. Both scales are within ounces of my doctor's scale, which is cool My Tanita is over 10 years old, too, so I'm happy the weight portion is still on point, but it is way off on my BF% (like more than 15 percentage points!), even when I make sure I'm properly hydrated and so on.

So I use the scales for weight, and go get a dunk test every four months to check my body fat analysis. It's cheap enough, and very accurate, so I feel better doing things this way.

I got a dunk test once. I thought I was huge and according to the test I only had to lose 4 lbs. I wonder what it would say now. Scary thought. How much does it cost, Ntombi?
