Here is a dumb question, but where the heck does one get a scale that goes up past 300lbs, most scales I have seen only go to about 250.....
If you live near a hospital, most physical therapy units have a scale for wheelchair users and those generally go to 600 pounds because of powered wheelchairs, etc. If you call ahead, they'll generally let you use them.Originally Posted by Wogsterca

Health O Meter makes some quality scales. They have a few units that go to 300lbs:
I'm lucky enough to work in healthcare, and my company gave me a nice Health-O-Meter scale recently. It's a digital display unit like found in doctor's offices, and goes up to 400lbs. Has a lead-acid battery that will last forever, I think
Anyway, Health-o-Meter makes nice stuff, as does Seca.
My company actually sells their professional line. Not cheap, but they are available. Most "home health" shops will also be able to help you out.
Maybe this is a dumb idea, but couldn't you just use two standard scales with one foot on each scale? Then you just add the two weights together to get the total. What I wonder though is would putting all of one's weight on one scale momentarily (while getting on or off), temporarily overloading the scale, do damage to the scale?
I have this one. Lots of features and goes up to 350. I have had it for about six months and I love it. Got it at Wal-Mart for $40.
