Now, you can go to the one extreme and purchase the type of scale that your doctor uses, but unless you have several hundred dollars to spend just to purchase the scale (add-in the cost of annual calibration as well), than I would opt for one of the less expensive models. Of these, there are two types: Analog and Digital. Now, I have a prejudice against the digital (my current model), so I prefer the analog variety. First, I like the idea of actually seeing the numbers on the dial and second, I like the idea of not having to buy batteries. If you do go Analog, try to find a scale that has a big, easy to read dial.
Before buying your scale, do some research on the web. Pick three or four different scales that you like and then read the customer reviews on each one. Amazon is a good source of customer reviews. Little by little you will narrow down your choice and hopefully purchase the scale that is right for you.
I hope that this article has given you some useful information. As always, good luck in your pursuit of a thinner and healthier you. If I can be of any assistance, please leave a comment and I will get back to you.
