OK, so my scale makes me so mad. The weights I get from it can vary 3 pounds within 5 minutes. It is not consistent at all. I am wanting to buy a new scale. Please give me your recommendations for brands and models on good consistent scales! What are you using? Do you like it?

I to have a health o meter. it's digital and i can program up to 2 ppl on it. It only tells you your weight and it cost $20. It is pretty accurate.

I have one of these:

Mine is about 12 or 13 years old but still measures exactly to what my DRs (or my kids DRs since I weigh them on it too) says.

Not sure if the fat calculation is all that accurate but the lbs are.

Tanita is the best, but they can be pricy. Personally, I have a Health O Meter for at home and use the Tanita when I'm at a gym that has one. Both work accurately. I don't rely on weight because it isn't a true indicator of health, so it doesn't matter to me if it isn't exactly a perfect reading. As long as my calipers don't break I'm okay if I don't have a scale! LOL

I have a healthometer too. Its pretty accurate. Your weight of course changes from time to time during the day but I can get on that scale 3x in a row and have it say the same thing.

This is my probelm. I can weigh 5 times in a row and have the weights be off by as much as 3 pounds.
