I am doing SW at home and need to buy a new pair of bathroom scales. I am housebound due to long term illness at the mo so can't go out to weigh at Boots etc. I would have to have the scales delivered. Any recommendations? TIA!
Hiya hun! I bought these scales when I started SW as I follow the plan from home:
Buy Weight Watchers Precision Electronic Scale. at Argos.co.uk - Your Online Shop for .
They're accurate to within about 0.5lb of what my doctor's scales say, so I don't think they're too bad. You can weigh on carpet as well because they have a set of feet to use to make them level. In fact, I've bought two sets of these as my housemate lost one of the feet off the first set!
Goal 1: Lose 0.5 stone
Goal 2: Lose 1 stone
Goal 3: Lose 1.5 stone
Goal 4: Lose 2 stone
Goal 5: Lose 2.5 stone
Goal 6: Lose 3 stone
Restart weight (07/03/2014): 16 stone 1lb (225lb)
I got the 4 in 1 precision body scale. Also weightwatchers. Currently 14.99 at Argos. Extremely accurate. Within half a pound of my class ones-even on carpet. Used to have an expensive glass set (salter I think) but they used to stop working all the time. So frustrating.
I just bought a set of half price digital ones in Morrisons. They were £4.99 but I'm happy with them as long as I stick by them, I weigh on the exact same tile in the kitchen every week lol
The reason I bought a cheap set was because I've a 2 year old & no doubt he'll break them (if he gets his hands on them) so didn't want to risk paying out for a more expensive set.
They don't deliver though could someone pop out for you to get the scales?

Team '6 months to sexy' 3 stone to lose - that's only 7lb per month
i bought some digital glass weight watchers ones about 5 years ago - they were originally £50 and they're pretty rubbish. you can weigh on carpet with them too as the feet adjust to surfaces, but if i move them half a cm the weight can shift by up to 5lbs!!! obviously something to be aware of even with relatively expensive scales.
i guess if you're going to get some have them lying in a permanent place where you're not going to move them.
keep on keepin' on!

I purchased the INVENTUM PW720BG directly from their UK shop - highly recommend this scale, stylish and very accurate. Can switch to lb, Stones, Kg etc. and can even analyse moisture % , fat % , muscle % and estimate bone density which I find to be very useful.
I hope this helps.
