Bathroom Scale Madness

Yesterday I ran small errands. I had determined I would drink my coffee and then allow myself two ketone shakes during the day. I used it as a fasting day to help recover from my setback the day before. I did not get hungry. It went well. 

When I stepped on my scale yesterday during the day, I knew something was not right. It gave me a number too low to believe. I think it was 161.4. or something like that. 

I hadn’t been active or sweaty enough to account for going from 162.6 to 161.4 in a few hours time, especially after drinking a lot of fluids. I recently changed the battery in my scale so I know that wasn’t the problem. 

It got me thinking about accuracy in scales and wondering if there was a better scale. I want a scale that weighs accurately and does so every time. I also care about the integrity of my blog. So I went shopping.

I went to Target and Walmart and selected these scales. I took them, along with my scale, to my neighbor Lisa’s house. We unpackaged them and started testing each one. 

Lisa stepped on my scale 3 times in a row. It gave her a different weight each time. My scale weighed Lisa at 126.8, 127 and 127.2, all within a few minutes of each other.

Lisa and I tested each of the new scales also. We tested each one several times. Then I took everything home and tested each one again, including mine, several times.  

I plan to test each one again tomorrow. I also asked my family and friends for their suggestions on a highly accurate scale. I may purchase even more scales to test.

All I can reveal right now is…Wow! There are differences in quality when it comes to scales. 

I will let you know what happens. In the meantime, I will be stepping on lots of scales and reporting weights from scales that seem to be reliable, but please know the process is still in the testing phase. 

I put pictures below of what my scale has read over the past day. Stay tuned for more reporting on bathroom scale reviews. Until then, be well and happy!

Sincerely,

Dawn Green
