Just in time for all those New Year resolutions! Choose your scale:)
First, a product review. And the disclaimer. The kind folks at Eat Smart Products provided me with a bathroom scale to review. I was not otherwise compensated for this review nor was my opinion in any way influenced. Yada, yada, yada.
Now, about the scale.
Loved it. Let me tell you why.
It measures in tenths of pounds. My trusty old (and I mean OLD) digital scale doesn’t do that. It was a little thrill to step on and see those decimal places flashing up at me. (More thrilling when the numbers were heading down, of course.) And the display is bright and very easy to read with a blue back-light. I also like that you just step on and, voila, it shows your weight. With my old scale (did I tell you it’s old?), I had to push a button with my foot, then wait for the scale to be ready, then hop on. And this scale is “pretty”: modern and sleek looking. And it even came with its own batteries!
Actually, there is nothing I don’t like about it. (Double negative, I know.)
Now what I found most interesting about this whole scale thing is that every morning (after I peed, before I ate or drank, and without my ratty old nightshirt) I stepped on both scales – first my old (yes, very old) one and then the new one. And I compared the readings. And for the first week, darned if they didn’t match up every single day! Except, of course, for that little difference that my old (ancient) one rounded my weight to .5 or .0. But then, they starting being off by a few ounces here and there, with the greatest difference being the day I weighed seven-tenths of a pound less on the new scale. Coincidentally, later that same afternoon, my husband, who has been double-weighing along with me, shared that his weight was a pound higher on the new scale. When I stepped on (shuddering at the added weight from clothes and food since it was afternoon), my weight on both scales was exactly the same. Hmm. You know that saying that if you have two clocks you’ll never know what time it is? I have two scales and now I only sorta know what I weigh. But close enough, in my opinion. Hubby is ready to commit to the new one, loving the decimals and envisioning how nice they’ll look when he makes his chart of our daily weigh ins. (If you missed reading about how he tracks our daily weights, you can read about it here.)
So, lucky you – those very kind folks at Eat Smart Products are giving away (oh – almost a pun there) a scale to one of my readers. And, just in case you already have a bathroom scale, you can choose a kitchen scale instead! So, weigh what you want – you, or your food.
