    I want to invest in some decent scales that can be relied upon. I was wondering what scales CD counsellors use? Do CD reccomend any brand/type of scales? I am willing to shell out for something a bit better than bathroom scales but I don't know who makes them.

    I got some weightwatchers digital scales from argos. I found mechanical scales very unreliable.

    I got my scales recently for Lloyds Chemists, they are digital and also give you your BMI etc and you can store stuff on there etc! far to complicated for me but I like that I can weigh myself in stones and lbs.

    I think mine is Tanita, very reliable, it gives me the same reading as my CDC.
    I think the are around £40-£60. They are really pretty too. They tell u ur body fat %, muscle %, how much water u r retaining, BMI its cool

    Thanks for this Susan, this was the kind of thing I was thinking of. Ones that can be moved and reset, and can be calibrated for carpet. I have had so many digital ones that never give the same reading if you stand on them 3 times in a row. Hate that!
