I try not to get too stressed out about my weight. I just have a lot of other things going on in my life that require more attention than noticing if I’ve gained or lost a pound in the last 24 hours. I used to pretty much only weigh myself when I went to doctor’s visits. During pregnancy, though, I became much more interested in/fascinated by my expanding waistline. We had a scale that I would use at home. It was one of those manual scales, because those fancy digital scales were just out of our price range. Unfortunately, the budget scale we bought would seriously give me a different weight every time I stepped on the scale. And I don’t mean that it would give me a different weight every 5 days; my weight would be different every 5 minutes! It would be off by anywhere from 1-7 pounds. Seriously! So basically, it was useless.
Second, it is consistent! I stepped on the scale and got my weight (which I WON’T be sharing, thank you very much!). Amazingly, it gave me the same weight when I tried it again a few seconds and a few minutes later. Hooray!
The third thing I like about this scale is that it is pretty. A pretty bathroom scale?! YES! I love that it is made largely from glass, because it will blend in, rather than stick out like a sore thumb (which is exactly what my old scale did). Because it looks so nice, I don’t feel the need to put it away in between uses.
Finally, I have to say that the price is something very lovable! It is only $24.95, which is a rockin’ price for such a nice looking, accurate scale. I am totally sold on this scale, which has a manual scale price tag and a very expensive scale look! That’s perfect!
EatSmart also has a really interesting product called the Nutrition Scale. It has a database of 1,000 whole foods, and you can put those foods on the scale to get calories, carbs, fiber, sodium, fats, vitamin k and six other nutrients. The Nutrition Scale and the Digital Bathroom Scale are made by a father and son team in New Jersey who had the goal of educating people as to what they were consuming from a nutritional standpoint so they could live better lives. As they worked with people on nutrition education, they also developed kitchen scales to help people with effective portion control. This is a company that really cares about helping people live healthier lives, and they are also working hard on keeping their prices competitive!
