Not loosing any weight?
No matter what I did, I couldn't seem to lose any weight. Every couple of days I would weigh myself on the bathroom scale, but the results were always the same. I was always overweight, and it only fluctuated by a pound or two. It was really frustrating, because I had been dieting and exercising. Still, I assumed that the bathroom scales were right. I had wanted one of the balance style, old-school ones that look very scientific, the ones where you move around weights to get the proper balance. Although it was not one of those, when I bought it, the bathroom scale was certified completely accurate, and I had no reason to disbelieve them.
Lost 15 pounds at a friends house
That is why was so surprised when I went over to a friends house. She had what she claimed was the most accurate bathroom scale in the business, and when I told her about my diet problem she told me to weigh myself. I was a little bit skeptical that it would show anything different, but I obliged her and gave it a try. To my surprise, the bathroom scale gave a much different reading. Apparently, I had lost some 15 pounds, but my scale somehow hadn't detected it. I had not looked at it carefully in so long that I didn't realize that it was jammed up. For some reason, the spring was out of calibration and would not work properly, and as a result it always seemed to show the same weight.
Choosing a new bathroom scale
Of course, I went out and bought new bathroom scales right away. I was not willing to put up with that piece of junk any longer! Finding the best bathroom scale was a little bit difficult. When I first went to the store, I was overwhelmed by all of the different choices. I ended up leaving again that day and buying a consumer report. I always make use of consumer reports when I can not decide on a purchase. After all, they give some very good information about what brands are the best and which ones to avoid. It recommended a good digital scale to buy, and I went out and bought exactly that model. Although it costs a little bit more than I expected, it was extremely accurate. I have been happy with it ever since. It has helped my lose weight because I know exactly where I am on my diet every day.
So is your bathroom scale lying to you?
