Weighing My Options

I am in the process of attempting to shed what I believe is a final 20-30 lbs. of weight off of my frame.  It's tough, because I love butter.  But I am reminding myself I can still eat everything I already do, just nipping in a bit here and there.  Perhaps one pat of butter instead of three sort of thing.  I'm hoping to welcome G back home next summer looking a bit different, and my figure would be the main part of that.  

Back in September I mentioned that I threw out my scale.  And honestly, I haven't missed it.  I haven't even weighed myself at the gym.  Which leads to the problem that while I know my body is different....I have no idea my weight, and so can't really set goals for myself based on pounds (and let's just say it's gonna be a lot easier to lose 5 lbs. for a goal than a whole size).  So G and I have been discussing the possibility of buying a digital scale to weigh in on.  It would be kept in the guest bathroom for the whole "out of sight out of mind aspect" that I need.  The only other option is to weight myself at the gym on their scales and honestly, hope it's not TMI, but I'd rather weigh myself naked than in my sweat drenched workout clothes. 

The problem is now that I've decided I want and can handle a scale that there seems to be a million choices for which one.  I don't need anything fancy.  I really don't feel the need to know my body fat percentage or whatever.  Just a simple digital scale that will give me my weight accurately.  A lot of reviews seem to have issues with accuracy (such as stepping on the scale twice within a minute or so and having it be 5+ lbs difference).  And so I thought I would ask my readers if anyone has a digital scale they've found to be a good purchase?  I'm definitely looking for recommendations, and would love to hear your opinions!


  1. Kalee,

    I have two digital is a Weight Watchers scale, and the other one is made by Health-o-Meter. I have had both for about 7 - 10 years and I like them equally.
    I have to weigh myself two or three times to get an accurate number. They both register 5 pounds heavier on the first try. Maybe that's just a digital scale thing. I've gotten used to it over the years.


  2. I too have the WW scale. It is good but I have to be careful about weighing myself without moving the scale. I have to keep it in exactly the same place.
