Seriously, my scale is not right.

Saturday, February 02, 2013

For weeks now, my scale has been "acting up."

I can step on it after 4 or 5 days of being on target, and it will remain the same as the last weigh-in. I decided to experiment. It will show that exact number morning, noon and night. Before any meals in the day...and following my heaviest meal. Before my walks or doesn't budge.

BUT....I'll have my husband step on the scale (he weighs MUCH less than me), then I will step on it and I'll get my true weight. (i.e., I may have lost 1.2 lbs in the last 4 days, which did not show up no matter how many times I stepped on it). THEN it will not budge from THAT number until he steps on it again!

I put new batteries in (digital)...but the number will not move until I have somebody else step on it. It seems to "lock in" on a number until a very different number shows up.

Has this happened to anyone else who owns a digital scale? Admittedly I hadn't used the scale for about a year, and it didn't do this before. Very frustrating.
