I think modern scales are pretty much all the same and for the most part accurate as far as weighing, which is all I am interested in. I like the lower price range Weight Watchers ones.

Moving in new directions.

I have a Fitbit Aria scale. I love it. It's accurate--the weights on it match the weights I get on the scale at my doctor's offices--and I like that it automatically uploads my weight to Fitbit and SP.

Taylor makes really good scales. I have a digital one and it has always been very consistent, without all the questionable number fluctuations.

Thanks for the great suggestions.
Although I do get mad at the number quite often, ha! I really do want a scale that is accurate so I know what # I'm starting with.
Thanks again,
Jayne

I have an EatSmart scale with an extra large, digital, lighted display. I got it from Amazon for less than $30, if I remember correctly. It doesn't give me any problems with different readings if I step on it a couple of times.

Look on the Consumer Reports web site, or Good Housekeeping web site. Don't get too expensive or too cheap, either. Realize, though, that it's the scale you are mad at, but sometimes not the scales fault, lol. We bought a new scale every year for awhile, before we had to admit it was just us, weighing too often and too soon before it had a chance to reset itself, that is why it's different each time.

Plan for tomorrow, but enjoy the heck out of today.

What kind of scale are you currently using? That might help people give recommendations.

My scale is frustrating me emoticon I weigh on a flat floor but it will give me different readings if I step on more than once. Yes I know I should go with the first reading, ha, but I just don't trust it.
So I am looking for some recommendations for a new one.
Thanks,
