Default Scales?

My scale is so old and unreliable. It has me 10 pounds under my actual weight ! I really need to repalce it with a new one. Any suggestions on a more reliable scale. Nothing fancy, just Walmart or Target or something. I haven't even shopped for scales in years so I'm not sure if they're all digital these days or not. Thanks!

I bought my Denise Austin health-o-meter digital scale from Wallyworld for about $25. It seems to be pretty accurate. Google "Denise Austin scales" for more info. Hope this helps!

Apparently digital is more accurate and does not tend to wear out like spring scales do. I have a Tanita scale that also measures body fat and I am happy with it. (Just not the numbers that come up!)
