I hear ya there! I have a digital scale as well and honestly you should stick with your scale. No need to waste money on another. Just keep in mind that you should weigh yourself once a week, same day, same time of day, and under the same conditions. Your weight can fluctuate withing a 2-3 pound range for any number of reasons including water retention, having to go the bathroom, whether you've just eaten or not, etc. Don't let 2-3 lbs discourage you. It'll drop slowly but surely

So to meet my goal I bought a digital scale because I heard it is more encourgaing when you see small incremental changes but everytime I stand on it it gives me a different figure. I have no idea if I am gaining or losing.

Does anyone have suggestions on a good scale to buy that isn't too expensive?

Should I just stick to the scale I have and weigh myself after long periods of time e.g. three weeks, two weeks?....

Help! :( It's really discouraging according to my scale yesterday I had lost 3 pounds..today I had gained two.....its driving me nuts!
