I would like to buy a scale, like the ones that they use in the doctor’s office, because I think that would be a good way to keep track of my weight, and I would be more certain about the values that I record for my weight, than I am with an electronic scale. So I need to figure out if I can find a good price on a doctors scale and have it shipped to my house. I am fairly certain that they are not going to be cheap, not nearly as cheap as a regular bathroom scale, but that is okay, because I am really dead set on keeping accurate track of my weight, as I try to lose weight, and I think that this is going to help me a lot with my goals.
I recently realized that the electronic scale that I was using was off by quite a bit. More than that, after testing it over the course of a few days, I came to notice that the amount that the scale is off by, was drifting in both directions from day to day. Now I am sure that there are probably some electronic scales out there that are much more accurate, and less susceptible to losing their calibration.
However, I would know for certain that the measurements are accurate, if I were to use a doctors scale that has a sliding weights on it. That is because those weights are of a fixed weight, and within the tolerance of the measurements, they will not change in weight from day to day, or even month to month or year to year. I would not have to spend extra time to verify that they are measuring accurately and it would just provide me with a lot of peace of mind.
