I was doing so well loosing weight, I felt it, I weighed it....then my scale broke.  I got a new one and it weighs in almost 10lbs higher than my old one, both are digitals.  I feel like i am now starting over!  aggg

weird.  do you have free weights?  you could put one on the scale to make sure it's measuring accurately.

:(. Sorry. Scales are evil!! Mine will give me a 2-6 lb weight variation if I step on and off of it several times in a row. So I never know what weight I actually am. I want a new one but I don't want it to tell me I weigh more than I think I do, lol.

I'd check it with something you know the weight of.

I keep a 10lb weight next to mine to make sure it is accurate but mine is not digital it's a really nice heavy duty scale, it will go up to 300.. Although I NEVER want to see it go that high!!!! LOL I also only weigh myself in the morning after I go to restroom before I dress. I will say though I recently went to the Dr and I had weighed myself at home that same morning and I weighed 6lbs more on their scale!!!
