I give up on the digital scale

that bloody thing is no good for my mental health. seriously. It hasn't really budged in the last few weeks (well, it sometimes goes UP quite a few pounds) but it keeps weighing me at 141.4. My old scale shows me at 136 today. I tried two 10lbs weights on them each today. Old scale - 20lbs New scale - 20.3lbs Lord love a duck... I think I will split the difference today and move on...back to my old scale. What a waste.

ugh, i hate to say it but what if you tried another digital scale? i got mine at bed & bath, paid something like $30 - haven't looked back since... my boyfriend has a fancy-schmancy one from sharper image and its always much higher than mine - crazy how they can be so different... :-o

p.s. congrats on the run!

if it helps at all, i had a $20 digital scale, and i got a new fancy schmancy one in january, which weighed me about 2-3lbs lighter.

the sick thing is, i didn't believe that the new scale was right, so I played around with the weights and stuff on mine too. they both usually weight me the same (on each respective scale).

I still don't know which one is right. I know that I am at least less than 135 since my WW meeting scale weighed me at 137 after lunch.

le sigh.

conclusion: scales suck.

That digital scale sure gives you a rough time. Say goodbye to it - forever!
