    And another digital weighing scales.

    But i'm not too sure about the digital ones

    Hi Vicky, are you talking about bathroom scales or kitchen scales? I am buying a new bathroom scales this week, a digital one as I think they are more accurate than the traditional ones. I was just wondering if anyone can tell me if the digital ones give you results in half pounds as well as full pounds or just in full pounds? I mean would they tell you that you weight 12st2.5lbs or would they just read 12.2?
    Sorry I can't be of more help to you Vicky.

    Buy Weight Watchers Precision Electronic Scale- Silver at Argos.co.uk - Your Online Shop for Bathroom scales.

    I have these ones and they give me the 11st 13lbs and 1/4 .. 1/2 .. 3/4 etc so i helps to see how close you are to losing the next lb etc most WW ones do i think :)

    I bought the scales at Argos today. I wanted the WW precision one but it was out of stock so I bought an ordinary scales (it is fushcia!) that gives the result just in stones and pounds, no parts of pounds. I prefer that as I don't want to get bogged down about half and quarter pounds. I weight 12st1lb on the new scales. I weighed in at 12st2.5lbs at the WW meeting last Thursday so I don't know if the new scales are making me a pound and a half lighter or whether I lost the weight since Thursday. I hope it is the latter!
