I've been thinking my scale is goin crazy the past month or so. It's been stuck at 160 for a couple weeks and it's just not moving. I've wored my butt off too. I lost 2 pounds at my last biggest loser weigh in at work and I lost 3 more today but my scale isn't budging.

Anyway, I got on it before work this morning and it was 238! :rollpin: So, I obviously know that's not right cause I've NEVER weighed that ever and I can't gain almost 100 pounds over night but I still tried it again. LOL! Then it just said LO. So, should I just get a new battery and that will fix the issue or should I get a new scale? Would it be acting funny for over a month as it slowly died?

I'm down to 162 on the work scale and it's always been 5-9 pounds higher than my home one. Since I started on my home one I'd like to continue on it but not if it's going to act nuts!

Put in a new battery and see what it says! Hopefully it will show all your weight loss!

I'm pretty sure that the Lo means you need a new battery. I would definitely give it a shot. You need that scale to show you all that progress!

Oh heck--- are you really asking whether to spend $5 on a battery and just SEE if that helps... or if you should just go ahead and buy an all new $40+ scale?

You silly head. :)

Get a new battery, they last a long time.

Well, I couldn't find a new one....I live in a small town. I took it out and put it back in and it read 158. That was pretty good for an afternoon weight I guess. We'll have to see if it works in the morning and then I will get a new one next time I'm at Target or something.
