My dd wants some bathroom scales. I was wondering what is the best kind/brand to buy and what is the worst? I have never bought any before. She likes to weigh herself everyday. Thanks for your input!

I have one that measures body fat percentage. If mine dips below a certain percentage my scale refuses to weigh me! :angry:

I have the Tanita body fat scale. It measures to the nearest 1/2 pound. I don't use the body fat part, it just depresses me! :rolleyes:

Consider going to your library & checking the consumer reports index - they generally have good advice.

Last time I bought a scale was many years ago (10? 12?), and at the time some popular brands were accurate to within 10%, others within 1lb.

10% is almost 20 lbs for my husband's weight, so how is that helpful!?!

I chose one of the 1lb variance ones. The prices weren't even that different!

Mine says that I'm 151.4 lbs. It's a digital I bought at Walmart. Scales are like horoscopes, fun to read but not to be taken to seriously!
