New Scales!

Saturday, October 10, 2009

So I went and bought some new digital scales since the old ones were giving me different numbers depending on how I stood on them. I was wanting them to be reliable and accurate - I wasn't expecting them to read differently! So thank-you Mr New Scales, you've given me an extra 1.2kgs - I jumped on the old ones to compare, no I hadn't astonishingly gained 1.2kg overnight the new scales just read heavier (or maybe it was the old ones reading lighter...)

In any case, I'm using the new scales, since they are more accurate and have better granularity (and a large readout!) - it really brought home just how silly the numbers are - scales are a good tool to gauge weight loss, but I won' t be held hostage to the numbers - just the trend (downwards!) to check my tape measures all measure the same (just kidding)

    I understand completely. I just a bought a new digital scale with fat/water measurements, and I lost a pound depending on my weight shift, then my fiance hopped on and got readings within a six pound range. So, it was returned today for a standard digital scale. Problem solved!
