I need to buy a scale, preferrably a digital one. I know this has been discussed before and I was unable to find the posts.

Which digital scale is the best? Which one doesnt go haywire and change all the time? Help!

I wish I knew. I have 2 scales, and both of them are making me want to pull my hair out.:mad:

The Rowenta Professional scale goes up to 340lbs. I found that to be the only accurate scale and it's digital which is a plus. Its a little pricey but worth it in the long run.

I bought a scale from walmart for 30 bucks. I love it. It is a health-o-meter you can put your goal in there and you can save your weigh ins. It counts down how many pounds until your goal. you set in your height and current weight and it measures you bmi. I think that it goes up to 350lbs.

Can you give me more info on the name? I looked online at walmart.com and they have several digital health ometers. Help!:?:

A while ago I bought a WW scale (the $40 digital version) and it works pretty well -- if I weigh myself 1st thing in the morning on weigh-in day, it usually matches with my weigh-in weight at noon.

Thing to remember with a scale -- it may seem like it's going haywire when really the problem is your weight can fluctuate up to 5 lbs in a day. That's why weighing yourself once a week at the same time works best to assess your weight loss. Otherwise you can go crazy watching the numbers! :)

I bought the Tanita Large Capacity scale. http://www.scalesgalore.com/pbath.htm#hd351
It's a little pricey at $75.00, but it is hands down the very best scale I have ever owned. It stores the reading of your last weigh in and shows it. It will store readings for up to five people. I never get a different reading, at all. For me it was also important that it accuratley weigh over 300 lbs. It has a 440 capacity.

Well I guess I will go with the Tanita Large Capacity Scale. I will have to wait till Christmas though....I think my hubby would crap if I bought this now. But if you say it has never given you different readings, that is important enough for me to spend the extra dollars. Because like someone already said, you get what you pay for, right? Thanks

I too have a Tanita scale. I love it. I get the same reading over and over again. Occasionally it will tell me a .02 of a lb difference. It measures body fat % and water % as well and has memory for up to 4 people. I love that feature. It weighs up to 330 lbs. It was $45.00.

I spent like $150 on a Tanita that does everything. It's amazing but most importantly it is the same reading each time I step on the scale. No 2 lb. fluctuations, no different readings if I look at it funny like my old scale. Always within .2 of the previous reading. And it doesn't keep changing while you're standing on it; once it beeps, it's done. My old digital one moved constantly and I had figured out the sweet spot where I weighted the least. Although I didn't really need all the do-dads on the expensive model, I really enjoy it and it takes a lot of the stress out of weighing in.

I got a Curves scale from Avon. It can store stuff but I really don't know how to access all that. I'm just plan and simple like that.

I have a Healthometer from Target that was about $80. I liked it because it has footprints on it to show you where to stand so you can't cheat and find the "skinny spot". It does the hydration thing and the fat percentage thing too, but the fat percentage is SOOOOO not accurate. It must just go by your weight and height because it's about 10% off the measurement I got in the water immersion tank. I just started using it today but I like it so far.
