What kind of scale do you use?

I want/need a new one and I would like one that is accurate. The one I have now weighs in about fifteen pounds under the one at my Doctor's office.

Maybe I should buy my Doctor a new scale or give him my old one!

Great idea. My Dr's scale also weighs heavy, I prefer my home scale.

I have a Taylor Digital scale, I got it at Costco for about $20. It is within 2 pounds of the doctor's scale.

Funny, I was talking to the nurse, women walk up to to the scale and remove everything they can without being starkers, men walk up and just stand on the scale, keys, change, shoes, etc.

I told the nurse last time that I had to take my phone out of my pocket because I just took it off the charger and it had a full battery...

Interesting. My oldest did not eat the chocolate till he was 8 or so. First we would not give it him when he was really little, we lied told him it doesn't taste good. Then he simply did not ask for, until I almost forced him to try a chocolate candy. It was love at first Bite, so to speak.

I don't own a scale. When I go to see my doctor and I have to be weighed, I stand backwards on the scale so I can't see my weight and forbid the nurse to tell me what I weigh. I go by how my clothes fit and how I feel. I think weighing oneself gets one more focused on how much weight one has lost vs. how well one is doing on changing one's eating habits (which will last a lifetime, vs. a diet which often means one gains the weight back). I have kept the weight off for 18 months thanks to changing how I eat. If I had gone on a diet, I probably would've gained the weight back by now. Instead, I focused on changing my eating habits. I was not overweight, I just didn't like being a size 14. I really like being a size 8.
