Yesterday I received my EatSmart Precision GetFit Digital Body Fat Scale w/ 400 lb. Capacity & Auto Recognition Technology that I bought from Amazon.
It weighs you, measures body fat percentage, body water percentage, bone mass and muscle mass. What I learned last night was: I have a LOT of body fat, I was dehydrated after my run and my muscle mass was better than expected. The bone mass weight doesn't really mean anything - but I am going to figure out what it means with the magical thing I like to call "google" lol
I weighed in this morning and it said 215.8 which is up from the 213 I weighed on my old "rotary" scale on Friday. Since Friday is my official weigh in day, I am going to wait until then to record whatever it says. I could have gained from my binge on Saturday (and will lose some or all of it by Friday), or it could just be a more accurate reading than my old scale. Either way - whatever it says on Friday I will update my Spark ticker to reflect and go from there.
It's very sleek and pretty. I am not really sure if all the bells and whistles will be helpful or not. But I took my measurements last night and wrote down all the scale information - so I think I will record all of that monthly.
So we will see! I hope to gain muscle and lose fat (along with pounds) as I continue this journey!
