Confessions were two days ago, but I've got another one for you: Before this month, I'd never owned a scale. Tracking my fitness/weight loss cycles consisted of just what I saw in the mirror and it wasn't accurate or very motivating at all.
When I was given the opportunity to review a digital scale, I was really excited to try it out. From not even owning a basic scale to being able to score a glass top digital scale? Hells to the yeah.
Once I finally received it I couldn't wait to set it up and try it out. My whole family was really surprised and excited about it because everyone wanted to weigh themselves. Yeah, we're that easily entertained.
The scale itself is gorgeous. It's got a glass surface and is surprisingly sturdy seeing as how all 5 of us (the three kids, Joey, and I) have been using it for the past month and it hasn't broken yet.
I think my favorite part about it is the personalization options. You can set up to 5 users (which is just perfect for us) by stepping on and weighing yourself and inputting your height. By adding your height, the scale is able to calculate your BMI with your current weight. Also, once you've added yourself as a user, the next time you weigh yourself, the scale will automatically which user you are and will also tell you the difference in your weight from your previous reading and will highlight the screen in red or green depending on if you gained (red) or lost (green) any weight. No more having to write down or remember how much you weighed the last time and doing the math in your head. #aintnobodygottimeforthat
Height: 5'1.8", BMI: 22.4, User: 1
Current weight: 121.6lbs, Gain of 0.8lbs from last weigh in. Crap.
So what about you? How do you track your fitness results and weight loss? Got any tips to share? And is the "give or take 5 lbs." rule true when it comes to weighing yourself?
