I bought some great Salter electronic scales in Sainsburys a couple of months ago for £20 and they are great, very precise readings in 1/4 pound increments.

I really need to start calculating so Im going to pop to big Tesco in a min and see what they got!

I managed to get a good looking set of Salter Body Analysing scales from Argos for £15, worth a look if anyone else is buying soon.

I got fed up with my old analog scales making me 10lb different every time I got on them - only minutes apart. I finally got an Omron set with body fat analysis. These are totally digital and tell me the SAME number every time I get on (a different number on a different day of course) so at least they agree with themselves!

I bought the black Salter scales from Tesco for around £18, a few months ago. They've done the job fine.

Salter digital scales for me too, picked them up when I first started the diet - they give weight up to 2 decimal places, which I quite like. I try not to use any others just in case!!

I've got weight watchers scales, they seem to be accurate as when I weigh in at slimming world its the same figure!

However when I put the scales in the middle of the bathroom floor I suddenly weigh half a stone more lol

I have salter digital scales, anyone using scales on a carpet need to use the special carpet feet that come with new scales. Or place them on a board that will act as a hard surface. If I use my scales without the special feet on a carpeted floor i'm about 9 pounds lighter than I am on the hard floor kitchen/bathroom. My scales are now set up in my bedroom with carpet feet attached.

Are we supposed to take the 'feet' off the scales if we are weighing ourselves on a flat surface like in the bathroom, or doesn't it make a difference?

really not sure, i think the best thing would be to weigh yourself then move scales to a hard floor and see if there is much difference. My back room carpet is old, worn and had very little pile to start with, that gives pretty much the same weight as my hard floors do but my bedroom carpet still has a lot of spring in it so I weighed far less up there without the feet on. I tried several places in my room til I found one that measures me the same as on my hard floor (my hard floor weighed me as the same as my Dr's and the hospital scales so should be pretty accurate)
