I too have had this problem and went through several scales trying to find both reliability and consistency, plus a scale that could tolerate my neuropathy/rocking when I step on it. I found a real winner--made by Tanita. It is sold from a sister site, which I can't recall, but if you Google Tanita it will come up. I got a model being closed out and saved a considerable amount. This scale is a real winner and couldn't live without it now. I do trust it very much and have had remarkably consistent results--like weighing 3 times in the morning before food--and everytime being the same or very close to the same. Good luck!

I bought a digital scales from Avon several years ago that weighs in pounds and kgs, and I think it was part of a Curves promo. You might check eBay for it. I've hauled it to school and let my kids use it, I've used it almost daily, and it has really stood up. It's within an ounce or two of the one in the doctor's office, so very accurate.
Anyone got a good recommendation for a scale? I had been using my wii fit, but it conked out on me recently. I bought a replacement scale at target, but the range seems to vary widely, and i can't get it to read the weight on anything that i KNOW the weight of to confirm if it's accurate. I hope it's not cause that means I gained 25 lbs in 4 weeks, which I KNOW can't be the case since my clothes still fit.
Anyway, any scales you guys might recommend would be great to know! Thanks!!
