This is just my two-pennyworth but....
I threw my scales out a few months ago and I've found it's better to focus on my shape and size rather than my weight. Some weeks I would have lost no weight at all and yet I could feel that my clothes were fitting better and I felt stronger. I posted about it and some people here on SP gave me that advice so I'm passing it on for what it's worth. emoticon

I think I was focusing too much on a single measurement whereas my purpose in changing my eating habits (I refuse to call it a diet!!) is to be healthier, happier, stronger, have more energy and get more out of life generally. So actually even if I stayed exactly the same weight I wouldn't care as long as I achieved those things.

Anyway, whatever you decide, good luck! emoticon

I bought a digtial for the simple reason, I can see the numbers! If you go that route read the directions. I bought one without all the bells and whistles and all I had to do is reset it so it gives you the correct weight which was easy. Good Luck.

Hi - Just go to Wal Mart or Target and buy a simple digital scale for $20-30. I bought one at Wally World several years ago to replace a complicated digital scale I paid a fortune for that showed your BMI and did everything but wash the dishes and make the bed for you! I never could figure out how to use that one either - and, besides, sometimes it's just too much information emoticon

I recently purchased a digital food scale and am in love with it!
The low price was a real surprise and it works like a charm.
It was only $20.00 at Walmart.

Bathroom scales or kitchen scales?

I bought the simplest I could find. That is, turn on, weigh, turn off. However, my bathroom scales had me puzzled for a while as there is no on/off button. You 'tap' the scales then hop on to be weighed. I haven't had to change the battery in either - yet. That will be a drag out the instructions moment.
