"You know this means I have to go out and actually purchase a scale, don't you."Guess what? I need a new scale too. I've purchased many in my lifetime and never found one I liked all that much. I guess it would be easy to blame the scale for telling me things I don't want to know, like I weigh more than I thought I did. Damn scale. Truth teller. Condemning me for my love triangle with these guys.
I've had both digital and the kind with the needle that goes around. (Is that called analogue? My husband and I just had about a 5 minute debate about it. Still no answer.) The problem I've had with digital scales is they tend to record my weight differently each time I hop on. This causes me to step off and on the scale a few times and attempt to average my weight after three attempts. The hopping on and off does not raise my heart rate and I can't count it as cardio, plus it makes me do math. I hate both. Math and Cardio.
The scale with the watch face (what the hell do you call it?) I'm never sure if I get the cheap-o one if that one will be accurate. I'm not sure I even know why I feel as if the mechanical (that's still not the correct term Is it?) one has to be expensive for it to be accurate. Do the less expensive ones do the job and last? I have no idea. The expensive scales seem really big and might take up the entire square footage of my bathroom.
For those of you who have a scale, or purchased one recently:
What kind did you get? Digital or the manual? (that just sounds wrong. Is it?)
- Do you like it?
- Where did you purchase it?
- How much did it cost?
