Default Help me find the most accurate scale

What is the most accurate scale? Also, is anyone using an activity tracker? What forum is best for asking these questions?

Diabetes Type 2, controlled by LCHF diet and exercise and not taking any meds.

As per your scale question, I would look at reviews on amazon, but I will say that you can make sure your scale stays accurate by keeping it only in one place and not moving it as well as making sure it's calibrated.

For an activity (as well as calorie) tracker, I use my fitness pal. It works for me and I like that I can see my activity and food in one place.

I have a Health O Meter scale which has remained quite accurate for a couple of years; last time I weighed myself at work (on a balance scale) it was pretty much dead on.

I use Runkeeper for my activity tracker because it uses the GPS on my phone to also track when I'm walking, and I like that when I enter my elliptical workouts it takes the distance into account. It is synched with MyFitnessPal so I still have everything together in MFP if I care to compare, but I don't eat back all of my exercise calories.
Mini goals keep me sane...But I never forget the bigger picture!
