Ugh! I hate digital scales.
A couple years ago we bought one and it seemed to do ok, until it started giving us wonky numbers (we'd step on, step off and back on again, and the weight would be like 4 or 6 pounds different) so we changed the batteries
the problem still kept happening.
I bought a new scale a few months ago. It was working fantastically. Until today. I stepped on it anticipating a slightly higher number due to the halloween party last night, but I was shocked to see a lower number.
I got off and got back on again, only to see a number 8 pounds higher! (even higher than my starting weight of a month ago) Stepped back on it again, being careful each time to step on it in the same manner, and I got a third number that fell between the other two. So WTF is wrong with my scale?
How am I supposed to keep track of my weight if this keeps happening?
Does any place still sell the old style of scales where the arrow points to your weight?
Do any of you have a tried and true digital scale you'd recommend?
FWIW the first scale we had was from walmart and I forget what brand it was. The one we have now was from target, it was about $30. I also can't recall the brand at the moment.
Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.
