After not owning a scale for years, and trying out a digital scale that turned out to be useless, I finally bought a Weight Watchers digital scale that works great. It gives consistent readings, makes efficient use of batteries, and was on sale at Target. Very pleased.
I'm happy with my cheap spring scale. I like that I can make sure it is actually zeroed out before I step on it. I had a nice body fat scale before but over time it became inaccurate and there was no way to adjust it. I think for me it is also good that I can't see the 0.2 0.3 readings...the dial on mine is just big enough that I can see a trend down but not be annoyed by small variations. But since the dial is small I don't end up recording that I lost a lb until I am certain it has past that mark.

I just bought today from Bed Bath and Beyond a scale from Beurer that another Spark user suggested. It is digital. It stores up to 10 profiles. So next week when I step on it, it will tell me my weight change. (Which will hopefully be down!). It also calculate your bodyfat %, muscle %, water %
It was $29 I believe, and BBB always has coupons so I used the 20% off coupon.

I would never talk to my BFF the way I talk to myself about my body.

I'm not crazy about the ones with all the bells and whistles...they're confusing. But I do like my simple digital scale - I feel like it gives me a more accurate idea of where I'm at than an analog scale would.
Every day is another chance to turn it all around.

I love my glass digital scale! It has a memory function so it tells me how much up or down I am, to the 10th of a Lb. So when I feel like I am having a crappy week, I can look at it and say well it isnt much, but down a 10th of a Lb is still DOWN!

I like the old ones with the needle. I had a digital, but got too consumed with the decimals. I let 0.2 of a lb, plus or minus, rule my day. How silly. I just track weight around 1-5 lbs. I try to feel my clothes more.

I like my digital scale. It has all kind of functions how to check BMI etc, but those are not very reliable, so I just check my weight.

I prefer an accurate one... style doesn't matter.

I think I've finally come to the point in my life where I'm happy with myself and know that I don't have to change or be a certain way for people to like me anymore. I'm just fine and if someone doesnt think I am, screw them. - Anon -
