So my scale has lost it. I stepped on and it showed me back up almost to my starting weight. I stepped off and back on. It said 283 also not right. At one point it said 291 so that is what I went with as it was the most reasonable. It went all the way down to 244. So what kind of scale do you have and so you recommend it ? Mine at almost 2 months old and $45 is going back!

I have this one---it matches my old ugly scale exactly but it's much prettier to look at it!

The EatSmart one on Amazon is the best one.

I have the same problem! When I did my weigh in last night I had a range of everything from 278 to 271 so I did the average. I don't think it's my scale though, I think it's because I have a tiled bathroom and if the scale isn't on a completely level surface it's not going to be accurate. I was thinking about moving it to the kitchen which has lamenate flooring and maybe I'll get a more accurate reading.

another vote for the eat smart! I have tried both the Taylor and the Eat Smart and the Eat Smart is more accurate! The Taylor depends too much on it's memory for consistency and it shows.
