Do you have bathroom scales ? How often do you use them ? Are they digital or normal dials ? I have scales they are the normal dial, so its not exactly accurate, I very very rarely use mine, but I do know some people that use them everytime they go to the bathroom...

I don't have a scale in bathroom, Calais! actually my bathroom itself is scaled. There is nothing to add there other than what is already in there. I don't have any scale out of bathroom either, I am a scale less person. I do have an indirect scale though. If I want to know my weight, I see whether or not my partner is with me. When she is away, like on vacations or exams, I weigh around 140 pounds and when she is around I weigh about 150 pounds. This has been strangely so, since our marriage. So much so that I left weighing myself several months ago.

I don't have a bathroom scale. I find it best not to weigh myself because then You won't get depressed about your weight. If your jeans start fitting way too tightly then you're in trouble! that's how I factor in.

I have a digital bathroom scale. It is pretty accurate. I rarely use it though. I wouldn't want to see how much I weigh every day. I would have to say I use it maybe once a month, sometimes less.

We have bathroom scales and they are normal dial also. I don't use them very often, I'd rather use a mirror to see if I'm putting on weight or not. My wife often has a laugh at me when I stand in front of it doing little poses, lol!

Hi there. I dont have bathroom scales anymore, because I found the ones we had, were just not reliable enough... I suppose them being old didnt help much either lol...

If they are not reliable there is no use in having them, especially if they make you heavier...lol..

yes, we do have one bathroom scale. But i think we should throw it out and get a new one. We don't think it's accurate anymore. First time my hubby tease me that the scale never lie, and that day it said i'm like 3 pounds heavier...hahaha...I think we will get the digital one next time.

Okay, nosy rosy...LOL...Yes, I have a bathroom scale. I use it everyday. Mine is digital. I never used to have one and now that I have lost 160 pounds I have to use it everyday, morning and night...I guess it isn't good to weigh everyday but I want to know where I am at. I am still losing and I have lost 10 pounds since May. *say cheese*

Thank you..I thought you knew...I had the gastric bypass in 2005. I am so much happier. I can't eat alot so I can't gain but I am just making sure I am not losing to much. Because eventually I will get to the weight I want and will have to learn to maintain it...I don't want to get to a size 0...LOL... Thank you again..

Mine are regular ones and I used a set of digital scales and I've adjusted mine accordingly. It's probably time I checked again. I used to use mine at least weekly but I'm so disheartened now I rarely look. They don't tell me what I want to know. LOL

Great topic. I remembered you started something too about knobs and door handles? LOL. I will be answering this post because I remembered that topic of yours where I said I am very poor and I do not even have a door knob or a handle. Now a bathroom scale.... Haha. I think you know what my answer is. I dont. Before I purchase a bathroom scale, I would consider reconstructing my doors first.

I have digital scales. I prefer these to manual, as I have trouble seeing the litke marks on manual bathroom scales now. My digital scales show to the nearest 0.2 of a kilogram. I weigh myself most days, as I am trying to loose weight.

Well I hope that you are doing very well, and the digital one must be great for that..

I just bought one recently. It was a 5-dollar purchase & it has a dial. (I'm frugal & proud!) I use it occasionally. Used to use them often ~ but got obsessed with my weight. Now I just weigh in occasionally, because I'm trying to lose weight. I believe in taking things in stride.

I don't own a set of scales. I don't even want to. I have always been underweight. Since quitting smoking I have put on a few pounds. don't even want to know how much

You know, I don't have one scale in my house. I used to and I never used it and once my ex's kids had soaked it with bathwater enough that the screen would constantly be misty and hard to read, I just tossed it and didn't bother to get another. I figure I didn't use that one ever, and since most people do have them in their bathrooms, I can just use one at a friend's house if I have a really pressing need to find out how much I weigh. :)

I have normal dial scales and weigh myself regularly to ensure I maintain my weight. Even though normal dial scales are not 100% accurate you at least know if you have gained weight and need to get more exercise or change what you are eating. I do weigh myself a couple of times a week.

I have one of those old mechanical ones. It is not very accurate (at least I hope it is not accurate and is out five pounds heavy. I change my weight by shifting around a lot. I used to weigh myself twice, once in the am and once in the evening, but have not done so recently, but really I should get back to that routine as I am trying to lose weight and I am the type who can gain five pounds in a day. There are some new ones that I would like to get. We did have a digital one but it broke.

Maybe you should get a new one, if you want to keep track, but I dont think thats its accurate to weigh yourself twice a day...
