I have this scale! I really love it. Granted, I know that no matter what, no scale is going to be 100% accurate, but I like that it is more than just ONE number.

Mine was on sale for $35 at Target, and I think they're about the same online at Amazon etc.

I measure progress by fit of clothes and by how well I meet the "Change Your Habits" challenge goals, so I can't advise you on scales, but I do want to wish you the best of success on your journey.

Go for it!

Thank you. I currently use my Wii and like the fact of getting my BMI. I know not all scales are I think I will bite the bullet and get this one. The price is right and will do what I need it to.

I don't know about the ww scales, but I'm assuming you are talking about the body fat composition scales.

I found this on another website on how they work:

How a Body Fat/Water Scale Works

Using a technique called Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis, these scales send a small, harmless electrical current through your body when you step on the scale. This current passes more slowly through fat than muscle, giving you a measurement of how much fat is in your body compared to the muscle, or your body fat percentage.

I've personally never had any problems, and never heard of any problems. I do know they are not 100% accurate but give you a decent picture of your progress instead of just a number.

I am trying to find a decently priced scale that will do my BMI/Weight. I was looking at the WW ones, but are they safe, says not to use if preggers or medical implants anything like that. Not that I have them, but just reading that makes me nervous. Any ideas or suggestions on a good scale?
