I have lost weight in the past three weeks. I thought I knew how much, but apparently, I'm wrong. About six months ago, I bought a Sunbeam scale from Wal-Mart with the idea that knowing my weight would help. Well, this scale is hampering my weight loss. I'd wake up, visit the bathroom, then weigh myself every morning of the last three weeks.
Funny thing though. I gained five pounds in one day. The next day, I'd lost one pound. I noticed the zero was off on the scale, so I fiddled with that, and got my five pounds of loss back. I then proceeded to weigh myself several times, each time stepping on and off the scale completely. It seems that I was randomly gaining and losing three to four pounds by the second.
I've gotta get a new scale. If it means I discover that I weigh more, it's fine. I just need to take that hit to my progress and move on.
I could really use a suggestion for a bathroom scale that has some degree of repeatability and will maintain accuracy with my unknown but probably 240-260ish weight range. I know that I can spend a fortune and get something awesome, that would detect me wearing a large band-aid, but honestly, I want to keep it under $50.
