I used to have a great set of scales that were really accurate. But one of the feet fell off the bottom and I got fed up having to wedge a bottle top under one corner to level it up. So I bought a new set of scales. They weren't very accurate, and could vary by up to 5lbs just by getting off and on again. So I took them back and bought some other ones. They were also shit.... and I went round this loop several times, until I got fed up and accepted that accurate scales were not available.
I'm dieting now, and would really love some accurate ones as it's so demotivating to see large weight swings that I know are nonsense. I want my old ones back! Any recommendations?
I have these Salter ones:
There great. Very consistent. I very, very rarely get any variation. I've been doing Slimming World for ten months and every week these scales weigh me as 0.5lb heavier than SW scales, without fail. They've been carted around in a suitcase a few times and still not lost any feet or accuracy.
