I decided to treat myself to a new, fancy, digital scale. I brought it home, stepped on it, and watched the large, bright digital numbers read...210 lbs. Wait, thatís where I started 15 lbs ago. I pulled out my old, rotary scale and stepped on it. The dial spun and landed on 195 lbs. I stepped back on the digital scale, 200 lbs. What!? I stepped off and back on to see 204.5 lbs. Come on!!!! Every time I stepped on the digital scale it gave me a completely different reading.
I decided to run a controlled test. I pulled out two of my 5 lbs weights. I put them on my old scale. The rusting dial, behind the slightly fogged plastic window, spun to 10 lbs. I then placed the weights on the digital scale, nothing, just 0.0 lbs. Apparently, it doesnít read 10 lbs weight.
Iím completely frustrated. I just want a solid, truthful answer.
