Hey you guys,

Someone have any suggestions or able to point me to a thread?

I've decided that I'm going to break down and buy a scale. Tired of trying to guess how much my clothes weigh and subtract that from what the scale says. I wanna be able to get on my scale naked! Haha

Any suggestions on types or brands?

I got a digital Weight Watcher scale from Walmart. It was about $30. I had read some other people that were pleased with it. I like it.

I also have a digital WW scale and I do like mine as well. I have also heard that other people like their WW scales too.

I just have a cheap one from Walmart. The big thing to look for, IMHO, is how big the numbers are. My next set is going to have a bigger dial so I can figure out how many pounds I've lost. Maybe it's my middle age eyes or something but dang they have gotten so hard to see.

I have two scales -- one is a cheapie digital made by Tyler or Taylor Electronics (or something) that I never trusted completely. The other is a Sunbeam traditional non-digital scale that I feel is more accurate. I still check both for my Monday weigh-in.

I have a Homedics scale that DH bought for me a couple of years ago. It's a digital scale that measures to 1/2 lb. I've been very happy with it. It's a lithium scale - which I think has something to do with the battery. I have also heard great things about the WW scale!
