I think this is a sign that I have a problem...

Our scale died. (A weight watchers one I bought about 5 years ago) and I'm freaking out! I know each scale is slightly different and now I'm upset because my month challenge is over on Monday and I won't have an accurate result because the scale won't be the same!! Booohooo!

I know it's really no big deal and I'm excited to get a new scale. Just had a little panic that I won't have an accurate weight after my hard work this month!!

Aw, try not to fret!  But yeah, different scales can measure differently!

I'm guessing it doesn't just need a new battery? But yea, I know what you mean. I switched scales too and it annoys me!

All scales are different. have you been doing measurements too?? theyre sometimes a better way to gauge your progress :)

Tried two new batteries and no luck. I'm guessing they don't like to be peed on! (The joys of owning a toddler! Lol).

Oh I've definitely got measurements too. And that's my comfort! Seeing the numbers drop week after week when I'm stuck at a plateau on the scale! I'm definitely a perfectionist and I want all of the data I can gather!!

sure, blame it on the toddler.... jk.

good luck with the new scale, and hopefully it gives you the results you want. But either way, don't give up!
