    Question What kind of scale do you use?

    I recently purchased an Omron Full Body Sensor Body Composition Monitor and Scale HBF-510. It had good reviews and was reasonably priced. I was excited to monitor not just my weight, but my muscle and fat as well. Some mornings when I weigh in I forget to select the user first and it just gives me a weight, not the other measurements. Although I'm in P3 (just starting P4 today) and maintaining well, I have higher days and lower days. I've found that I see my weight and get excited at a slight drop (I've been at the higher end of my +2 LIW lately) and it doesn't move on to take other measurements. Then I remember to select the user and weigh again. It's always higher on the weight! Usually about .8 higher! My old scale (a Taylor) was very stable on weight and this one seems to fluctuate quite a bit. That makes me wonder if the other measurements are accurate. When I compared my initial results from this scale to my last In Body results from the clinic, they were pretty close, so I thought the scale was pretty accurate. The .8 higher when I select the use is also .8 higher than my old scale.

    Just wondering what scale others on here are using and what your results are. After purchasing the Omron (and manually entering the data every morning on a spreadsheet), I began to wish I had instead purchased a Withings Smart Body Analyzer (almost 3 times the price) which would automatically upload my info using WiFi. I'm within the window where I could return the Omron, or I could always sell it on Ebay. Just trying to decide what to do.

    Round 2 Pre-load weight 238.6 - ended early due to thyroid treatment and ongoing labs - Working on stabilizing at 235 or below.

    I am pretty low tech. I still have an old spring style scale that I keep in my dressing room

    But! I have moved up to a digital talking scale, who loudly (and rather snottily, I think) announces my pounds and tenths of a pound once stepped upon.

    Once she gives you a number, you don't seem to be able to make her change her mind. Although I have discovered that there is a sweet spot on the old hardwood floor that seems to give a more favorable reading than other placements. Guess where I put the scale?! haha!

    I always check it with the the old one to make sure they are in sync. The decades-old scale is just as accurate as the new one.

    I don't know about the ones that measure fat and water. I suppose that might be helpful if you could pinpoint that your gain was all water rather than a fat gain. Sometimes too much information just drives you crazier, though.

    I use this one: http://smile.amazon.com/EatSmart-Pre...bathroom+scale

    Those body fat things don't work as well for women as they do for men.

    I use a Tanita scale that also has a body fat monitor. It has "pads" where you step to calculate your body fat. You select your gender and enter your height then step on the scale and it shows you your weight and body fat percentage. Not sure how accurate it is but it works for me.

    I use a weight watchers scale. It has a body fat % thing on it, but honestly I never learned how to use that part of it- I just use it for the weight.

    I have this Tanita brand. It's been with me for 5 years now. I love it!

    I got a $10 digital scale from Walgreens. Weighs in 0.1 lb increments - love that!! I like it better than my $40 digitial scale I got more than 5 years ago, and weighs just as accurately.

    I have one as well and I'm sharing it with my friends. They all love it!

    I have a couple of Escali LCD scales which i really like. I also have a mini travel scale that's about the size of an iPad, which works very well.
