    So im moving out on my own in July, and am looking for a scale thats fairly accurate but not super pricey. Should I just stick to the department store specials or is there something out there that I need to look into :dunno:

    I knew someone was gonna say it :hsd:

    I do base the majority of my losses on how I look and how my clothes are fitting, but like most people I like having a number :sad2:

    if it's within 5-7 pounds and you don't need to make weight for something, it's good enough... what good does knowing your weight do?

    As for what good does knowing my weight do, in reality it does no good, its just something I want to have an idea of :dunno:

    The Taylor ones that you can find at Target are sufficient. Depending on what you want, you can get a decent digital for around $20. But, like some have said, your goal should be to not need the scale.

    amazon is just a lot of independent stores so im not sure how trustworthy they are. The guy on ebay i'm talking about has 100% feedback score with 250 feedbacks. Getting that kind of score means you have to go out of your way to keep the unreasonable idiots happy.

    yeah i dont even step on my scale, because numbers always bring me down.

    i dont think it matter as long as you use the same one everytime

    edit: or just use the one at your gym
