I just bought a new digital scale that is about a foot square and made of glass - you really have to stomp on it to turn it on and I'm always afraid I'll break it...lol But I like that it measures in 10ths of a pound. I got it from Walgreens and it was only about $20 or so. I wrote on it to remind myself not to take that number so seriously. There's a pic of it on my Sparkpage.

I just use my Wii Fit. It takes forever to weigh, though. But it keeps me from doing it too often!
It will hurt. It will take time. It will require dedication.It will require willpower. You will need to make healthy decisions. It requires sacrifice.You will need to push your body to its max. There will be temptation. But, I promise you, when you reach your goal, IT'S WORTH IT.
My boyfriend insists that analog scales are the best because you can recalibrate them easily, and make sure they are always weighing accurately. My problem is I can't read the little lines when I weigh myself early in the morning. I have to have him read the scale for me if I want to make sure it's accurate. I think I'd like to get an analog scale with a bigger display. That might help.
Or new glasses....
