Default Speaking of scales that don't work.

This seems to be a recurring issue, even my scale is terrible and I can get on it a bunch of times in succession and have an 8lb difference. So does anyone here love their scale? I would be so grateful if you guys could share what scales you use, that you love! Thanks in advance, Dancing.

I have a Health-O-Meter Body Fat Monitoring Scale that I have used for the past 5 years now. Love it! I got it at Walmart for around $20.

Being fat is hard. Losing weight is hard. Maintaining your weight is hard. Pick your hard.

Emme, that looks nice! Much easier to stand in the exact same spot everytime. I might need to see if I can find one next time I go to walmart.

I have the Thinner Scale. There is some fluctuation if I get on repeatedly within a couple of minutes, but it varies less than 0.5 lbs from the first reading. I'm shocked at the idea of my scale being off more than two pounds!

I'm 1/4 closer to my weight loss goal of losing 141 lbs. Next Mini Goal: 210 lbs
