Weighing myself...How do I know which weight is correct

I have a slight pot belly and look like I'm pregnant so I have to bend over slightly to see what the scale says and I will see the hand on the scale bounce around and so I'm never sure what the actual weight can I get an accurate reading?

  • i would upgrade to a digital. I never got a good reading with a regular one.

  • I agree, it might be time to invest in a digital. Ours has a separate display that we mounted on the wall, which eliminates the issue of having to look down.

  • Have someone else read the scale for you?
