    they are the pits. When you stand on them they give you a ridiculous reading ...then you stand on them again, then again till finally 3rd time they settle and decide what weight they are going to tell you. The third weight seems accurate enough, they weighed 1lb more than my CDC so I cant really complain.

    Anyways - just been on to argos and reserved a set od mechanical scales, as this jumping on and off feels a bit much like excercise to me. :8855:

    My fat analysis scales are pants - they can vary by a great deal so I do use digital as I got a pair of Salter ones from the local car boot and they've been OK (they are 1lb under my CDC but it's all realtive)

    lol my cdc has digital scales, last time i was weighed she had to get me to stand on the scales on top of a table and they still fluctuated by 5 stone, had a gammy leg that week too so getting on and off the table was interesting

    I got a new set, mechanical ones this time. Those one I had measured your fat and all that jazz too - they cost a lot ...and they are now headed out the door.
