hi everyone, i was wondering what bathroom scales you all use as a little while ago i bought the glass WW ones which seemed ok when i first got them but over the last couple of weeks they have been really random, i get on em, get off, get back on and ive either lost 2lb or gained a lb lol i weigh daily but my weekly weigh in on a thursday i only weigh first thing in the morning and only ONCE otherwise i would really be disheartened if they told me id lost then 2 seconds later id had a 2lb gain..lol so which scales do you all use? thanks in advance xxx

I had ww ones and they were rubbish, changed weight everytime.. my work also bought a pair for a slimming club and they ended up replacing them. But u never know... Could be your balance. Have read good reviews on websites about ww ones perhaps its a certain model.

Iv got glass ones from tesco. I know scales can b temperamental at times so i always weigh 2/3 times in a row to make sure its right

I have the Salter glass electronic ones. They don't record a weight until you've been still for enough seconds, they weigh in fractions of pounds which is important if you are on a slow loss week as every little helps :), and they weigh the same each time even if I move them. I checked this when I first bought them but I don't bother now as they weighed the same so consistently so I only weigh once as I know it won't change if I get on again. My old ones (forget the make) used to weigh me differently almost every time and it used to pee me off. Would much rather be given 1 weight and stick with it, even if the weight you're given is not that pleasing ;)

I have got some Tanita Scales that do/measure everything!

A bit over the top as they cost £120 but I did get them at half price :) and they are reliable unlike my previous purchases.

Hope you find a decent set

hi all, thanks for replying ive been googling all afternoon and been looking on the amazon site and the tanita scales seem to come out the best, i dont think its my balance as i use the wii and theres a balance setting on there and ive never had a problem although not sure if thats reliable either..lol the WW ones show the weight once ive been still for a while but then as soon as i get off and back on the reading is totally different so i think its def the scales, thanks again everyone i think ill look into the tanita ones x
