    Can anyone reccomend a decent set of digital scales?

    Wana spend max £20 - but if they are really good i may go over a little!

    Fed up of my old style set as i cant tell where the needle is without moving and then the blasted needle moves and then grrrrrr!! lol

    don't go digital - get the regular scales cause u can mess with these put the dial about 2lbs lower than O and when ever you get on you will be amazed - a friend of mine put hers at 12 stone - so she would never go over 20 ! must be a thin persons thingy - never got it!!!!
    unless she was comparing herself to me - fat v skinny friends never work out
    love munchies xo

    Now, I am going to be really awkward and say dont buy any!!! You may start to get really paranoid about keep weighing yourself:rolleyes::confused:.

    Could you not maybe go to Boots once a week and get weight on their big scales? These are usually calibrated regularly so should be fairly accurate..OR, what I have done...is go to wellwoman clinic at your doctors surgery once a week...they will weigh you no problem.

    I have digi scales, with the height, BMI, etc..but I shove them under the bed as I dont want to get to wrapped up and I will keep jumping on them every day if they are out in my view. I think the one's I bought were about £50, but I still dont really rate them...

    Hope this helps!

    We got ours from the local chemist, about £18 I think, but to be honest I tend to use the scales on the Wii Fit most.

    Have a scout about on t'internet at places like Amazon, Tesco Direct, Argos and Boots as there might be some good offers, and have free delivery.

    I got mine from B and Q. They weigh different all over the house. Make sure they are on a hard surface and don't move them. They say my bmi is at least 10 points different to the chart at the chemist. so be careful what you buy : )
