I'd return the scale for being inaccurate and stay with the first one unless it doesn't work at all then I'd google for the best reviews on a scale and buy that one... (but hey that's me...lol)
Personally, the only scale that's accurate, is the one at the doc's office but they'll probably arrest me if I strip down bare butt to weigh myself so I wear the lightest clothes possible and remove my slippers and anything else that's legally allowed. The nurse always laughs at my eccentricities (a pound is a pound right?), but at least she 'get's me.
I use one scale at home to gauge if I'm on the right path (downwards) or if I need to tweak things up a bit... and just in case you're wondering.. my scale is two pounds lighter than the doc's, but that's understandable with the clothes and all. 1394 days ago
Remember always that the number on the scale is just that: a number. It really doesn't matter that this one reads higher than your last.... What is far more important is that over the next few weeks, you see this number start to drop...it is the Trend which is important!! By following your plan, you will know that is going to happen. Be patient with the process, and don't let the "number" define your progress or your feelings. Have confidence in yourself!! 1396 days ago
I feel like my scale lies all the time, lol. I go by how my clothes fit and the scale at the YMCA, there scale is alot more accurate. Keep going, all scales are different or they lie to make us crazy ;) 1396 days ago
