Weight Loss Support - No more "ERR" on my scale :)

View Full Version : No more "ERR" on my scale :)

I have a nice omron scale with body fat and all that stuff, it goes up to 330 lbs. However that means, for the last year (350 lbs and losing) every time I weighed myself it would flash around to my weight... but before deciding... would go "ERR". It was depressing. But today I weighed in at 330 lbs EXACTLY and didn't get an ERR message.

WoooooO!!! I have a scale that I can weigh myself on!!!

300 lbs+ problems. :carrot:

That is an amazing victory!

I'm sure it makes you feel great. Congratulations.

Congrats!!! That is wonderful and I'm sure brought a smile to your face!

Did you cry when you saw the number settle? I would have been waking a foot off the ground for days! Congratulations!!!!!

I have about 8 lbs to go until I can move the large weight on my scale down. I can't wait.

There are lots of great posts about NSV (non scale victories), but I think this might be one of the best SCALE VICTORIES -- literally -- that I've seen. Congratulations!

Awesome!! So happy for you! It's all down from here so enjoy the numbers getting lower and lower! Congrats on your hard work in getting rid of that ERR, we all know it's not easy.

Moving Forward

Thanks everyone! I was very encouraged this morning. The number settling on my weight instead of flashing the error code was such a great feeling. It's been a big frustration for me over the last year that I've weighed over 330 lbs. :)

worst message ever to see :(

IT IS!!! I have to say BJ84 - as much as I VOW to never go over 300 again once I'm under, I even doubly vow to never see that ERR again!!!! It's so freaking depressing. Please don't take me in with the farm equipment to get a weight. I can do better :(

Congrats! BTW, I wouldn't have believed you weigh over 300 going by your avatar. That's a beautiful picture of you.

Thanks! That's so sweet of you. That was a photo of me at my wedding, circa 300 lbs I think.

Congrats to you! As someone who has been 325+ (I straight up stopped weighing myself at 325-- denial much? lol) I do understand how you feel.

IT IS AWESOME!!! It's a big deal and you should be celebrating!! I'm rooting for you to get into the '200s' and will be looking for the post when you do :)

Congrats again!
