What scale do you reccomend?



Recommended Posts

Does anyone have this scale? I found it on Amazon. I need a good scale that goes to 400#. What kind do you have?

AVANTEK Digital Bathroom Body Fat Scale (Measures Water, Fat, Muscle & Bone Mass) with 400 lb / 180 kg Capacity & Step-On Technology

I bought this one on Amazon. Seems to be a real good product. Been happy with it. post-217811-14209821077789_thumb.jpg

The Tanita brand is consistently the highest rated by Consumer Reports. I have one and I like it.

I recommend you don't have one at all. I use the one at my dr's office. Seriously. I also use the electronic one at the gym. Dr's office is once a month. I'm just now coming up on 4 months post op from banding. I use the one at the gym if I think about it. It's so easy to become obsessed with your scale just like before WLS. It becomes another way to "scale" your success or failure. I personally prefer use of a scale in a "safe" place where I have support if it's not what I had hoped to see or even when it's better than what I hoped to see.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
