Digital Scale That "Gets Stuck" On A Certain Weight....


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I saw a Sparker's comment about her scale being possessed by the devil...I always thought my digital scale was would stay the same reading for days when I knew I had lost...

I finally figured out how to get it to stop has to be "reset" and so I picked up an object that weighed 10 lbs and weighed myself and then the weight it was "stuck on" would go away and I then get an accurate reading.

I actually threw away my previous scale cause I thought it was "broken." emoticon

    My scale would do this to me also and then I would get frustrated;quit weighing myself;and give up until my conscience and going to Spark people secrets would give me the confidence to start again. I will try this. Thank you so much.

    I finally figured this out too! After a week of my weight not changing at all and me trying everything I could to lose weight (I even crash dieted for a couple days because I was so frustrated). I stepped on this morning and it showed the same number and I got mad so for some reason I put my dumbbell on it and then weighed myself again. I've lost 4lbs after all...stupid scale!

    my scale does this! I just have to pick up something, weigh myself, then drop it and weigh myself again - then i have an accurate weight!

    I have to try that! I worked my butt off with my trainer for 6 weeks and only lost 4 pounds. Here I am 8 weeks in and 5 pounds just doesn't feel right. Thank you!
