the reviews on Amazon are no help. There is no particular scale  that has a solid 5 stars. 

I didn't know that Homedics scales are made by Taylor. I might get one of these.

I also have a Taylor (that I got through WW) -- it's reliable and unfortunately accurate... and only measures weight.  It will let you track the comings and goings of the weight as compared to your first baseline weight.

Could you give me a link to the scale that you have?

I have a Taylor digital scale that I rely on. For me, daily weighing is much easier than counting food calories, and my wife and I rely heavily on daily weigh-ins for information feedback.

I've had it (and have recorded my daily weight records) for 4 years. If it ever breaks, I'm buying another one of the same brand within a week.


they have different models. Which one do you use?

Question of the day:

What's one thing you want to improve on? Lets all make a small change for the better on Monday!

I want to start eating healthy and counting my calories. Without managing how many calories I eat everyday, I am not going to lose weight. 

what about you? what's one thing you want to improve on?

I want to join you guys. I really want to lose 100 pounds. I have done it before but gained it all back. I am a female, 38. I think I am 260lb now but am not sure. A challenge would be nice. It'll motivate me to get started.

Anniejoy, I would like to do that walking program with you. Are you saying it is 30 minutes a day? 20 min of walking and 10 min warm up and cool down?

Just spent two days not counting accurately and mildly overeating (was bridesmaid, so this was rehearsal dinner and wedding). Will certainly set me back a pound or two... But that is fine. Two days ago I was at 211 and my mini-goal is 207 by the 24th, so hopefully it will still be doable.

It is doable, have plenty of time.  fingers crossed for you! :)

Hi Lillys,

can you give us more information? how many calories do you have a day and how much do you weigh?

Are you interested in following a walking plan with me?

do you have access to a gym?

Pita, I am glad you are doing ok. :)

Muppet, These are great rewards. How is your NP diet?

Pita, let me help you push that woman down who didn't believe that Muppet was dating her bf.

So you are having  headaches again. do you get enough sleep at night? do you have a cold or something? I hope you feel better, Pita.

Muppet, you are beautiful inside and outside. those people are just haters. Thanks for the advice about the psychiatrist. She is a sports medicine doctor and works with patients who need to lose weight. I might give her a try. We will see.

Akela, tell us what you did with the boss.

Topeze & Snooglies, where have you been?

To the new members: Welcome!

Pita, Totally agree with you. it is not the best option for me either. I was thinking about this surgery for my sister. She is 300 lb and has tried to lose weight so many times. her health is in poor condition. 

Sounds like a fun and nice Father's day. :) You are a good person. So many people won't feel bad about treating their assistant like an errand boy. Is this the first time you have such a headache or have you had it before? Hope you feel better.

Kathryn, Good luck, girl! I am excited for you. I am sure that WW will motivate you to lose weight. I like your pic by the way. Very pretty! :)

ok ladies. I went to the doctor today and asked him if he knows any weight loss specialist. he referred me to a physiatrist. I don't know what a physiatrist can do for me? sounds confusing to me. I called her office and she told me that she is not a nutrition expert but she can help me lose weight. So I asked her if she could give me a meal plan and she said yes. I am more confused after that call. Any advice?
