I use a Tanita digital scale. It was a little pricier because it also has the body fat% and water% (which is terribly inaccurate for me, but seems pretty close for my husband), but they also had cheaper models which were just scale.

Very accurate, if I measure myself multiple times in a row (when I'm going "that can't be right", LOL), I get the same number within 0.2 lbs.

Do something everyday that your future self will thank you for.

I don't remember what kind of scale I have in my bathroom. I bought it at KMart and it's a digital scale. I know that when I bought it, the little manual with it said to put it on a flat surface and not to move it. It went on to say that if it did get moved, to get on and off of it 3 times, then after that it should give a more regular reading. I weigh myself first thing in the morning and sometimes, I'll do it a couple of times to just to double check.

I have changed the batteries twice (to make sure the first change wasn't weak), no difference. I keep the scale in my dining room so it doesn't get moved and is on a hard surface. The scale is plastic though. I like the looks of a new glass one and the few that I have tried in the store feel more sturdy.

I just have a glass CVS brand digital scale. Looks nice, and has always been accurate. Have you changed the batteries in the other one recently? Before you chunk it, try changing the batteries. THey get inaccurate when their power is low.

I am looking to buy a new scale to weigh myself. My current digital scale is very inaccurate - one morning I stepped on and the number was way too low or high (I forget now). So, I have been weighing several times in a row until I get the same number twice. Quite a pain in the butt!

Before anyone starts lecturing me, I am NOT obsessing about the number; I notice a difference in my clothes and how I feel. I am using the scale as a TOOL to keep me on track and to see how far I have come.

I am looking for a digital scale without all the "bells and whistles" such as hydration, fat %, etc. I am most interested in what models you have found to be accurate. Thanks!
