    As I am going it alone this time (as my meeting helpfully moved from 6.00pm to 10.30am - when I am at work!) I was wondering if anyone could recommend some good quality accurate bathroom scales as I would like to track my progress.

    Thanks,

    I'm going to Boots to have a little look around at lunchtime so will let you know if anything good there.

    I had a WW set a few years ago but now it seems to have gone haywire, so need to replace them as want to do this accurately rather than getting angry with the ww ones that didn't recognise any change in weight, then would go to meeting and have lost 3lbs - GRR!!!

    I second that, I had the all singing all dancing body fat monitor ones and they weigh 2lbs heavier than the official WW weigh in ones. I now have some Salter digital ones that are pretty accurate and usually reflect what official WI says.

    I third that!!,i treated myself to the same ones as lydia and mine where way way out too...i think the secret to them is finding a solid+even surface to place them on..
    Does your Boots have scales as i find there's pretty accurate...Good luck

    weight watchers
    salter are definitely the best, when i was living between two houses, i had salter ones at my parents home and they always said exactly the same as the weight watchers meeting, whereas the other ones at the 2nd house ( a brand ive never heard of) were just ridiculous and would be either majorly over or under. so i went and bought salter ones for that house too and my housemates definitely saw a difference. salter for me everytime and they tend to have a long guarantee too.
    I also find the ones in boots (that you pay for in the shop) to be terribly inaccurate!
