I replaced my scale today. I've had it for about 3 years.
But, I had had the one before that for about 5 years. And one Sunday morning about 3 years ago, I stepped on the scale - just knowing that I was going to see progress after weeks of stalling - I was doing all I could and them some - but the scale hadn't budged.
I was so frustrated I stomped on the scale - really hard. And, the scale broke.
So...I went out to get a new one and I found a taylor scale that also measured body fat. Which I would now recommend to anyone...I really could see my progress as I got more toned in terms of body fat although the pounds may not always reflect a change. I could also better see how fluctuations happened with my hydration levels.
The body fat and water percentage functions on my old scale stopped working - and the height/age function started showing the wrong numbers. I began to worry that the weight would also be inaccurate too. I also replaced it with a new taylor scale that measures body fat. My new scale shows me 2 pounds heavier... :( Come on new scale...Couldn't you do make me lighter? ;)
Do you weigh yourself at home? Do you use a certain type of scale? Does it have a body fat function?
