    weight scales

    hey all i could use some a little advise...i really want to get a new scale cause the one i have now sucks...its so inaccurate that if i weigh my self 5 times ill get 6 different readings...so when purchasing a new scale what kind would say is better good old analog scales, or ones with digital readings?

    I've heard digital is always better.

    I prefer the analog ones because with the digital ones, depending where you stand on the scale, you'll get a different reading.

    I have the same problem with my analog scale. My weight can vary by 5 pounds at one time. You know, step on, step off, step on, step off. I've heard that no matter what scale you get. You should always weigh yourself three times and take the average.
    To clear up some confusion:
    Blanche = slut on the Golden Girls
    Soprano = The Sopranos
    And no, my life does not revolve around the tv.

    My friend has a digital one at his house I weighed myself about 3 different times and they were only off by like .3. So it also might depend on the quality of the scale.

    i have a weight watchers digital scale, you can get it from bed bath and beyond.

    pretty accurate overall though my weight is different in the masterbath than the laundry room.

    i just put a 10lb plate on it, see what it reads and adjust bodyweight readout accordingly.
