Scale, dont fail me now !

I want to scream !
I am starting with the full course of suggested changes to make for my body this week in order to help me overcome some of the challenges presented with PCOS and perimenopause, so it is really important to watch the scale to see if these are indeed the right moves. So I stepped on the scale this morning to see how things are doing and it is up 20 pounds.

What ????

So I get off and step on again and it says that I weight 19.5 pounds. Hmmm- so off and on again, and it says I weigh 378 pounds- a 120 pound gain from Saturday. Otay panky, the scale is definately not working right. Bad news is we have no money to replace it at the moment, and the car needs a brake job and tires. Perhaps simply changing the batteries will fix it- I sure hope so !

I know the feeling! I had the same issues with my digital scale, too. Thankfully, it was only the battery.

I was lucky enough to find a non-digital scale at a garage sale a while back for $5.00. It was still in the box! I couldn't believe my eyes!

I much prefer my digital one, but at least now I have a back.

I think the batteries might be the problem with my scale... I get on it, it says one weight I get on again a few seconds later I'll do this several times each time it gives me different numbers with in 5 pounds of each other... not good when you're counting every .1 of a pound... lol.

The digital scales are wonderful, but the battery thing can make you nuts ! I pull;ed them out, switched them around and things are fine. For now- I will get fresh ones this weeksnd.

We have not been able to find an old fashioned one that goes high enough to weigh my son, and really had to hunt to find one that goes up to 400 pounds. He is currently at 355, so it will be a while still before we can use one of the lo tec models.

That was our problem, too. My husband weighs about 360 at this point.
