I need to get a new scale. What I thought would be an easy process is overwhelming! There are so many choices out thereConfused
All I want is a scale that is accurate, good quality and has weight recall. I would like one that shows what my weight was previously. Does anyone know of a good one out there? Would appreciate any advice.
Thanks, Mary

Yes. The health-o-meter digital scale - it keeps track of weight for at least 2 people. Didn't pay much. Got it from Wal-Mart a couple of years ago.

I have a good set of tanita scales for home, they have bodyfat analysis, can store multiple users, and are rock solid construction wise. Accuracy is bang on with these.

I have the Health-O-Meter too and it seems to be very close to what my doctor's office scales. I think the most important thing in using any scale as a "monitor" of your progress is to weight at on the same scale, at the same time of day, with the same clothing (or lack thereof).

Thanks everyone! After much review I went and bought the Omron HCM-516. I will probably only use the weight tracking but figured my hubby would enjoy the body composition feature.

If adding it yourself is too much, go to the exercise list. There are calisthenics in 2 or 3 levels as well as yoga (for stretching type things). I use the light calisthenics since I do them at home and ...

This is a good starting point, but you really need an exercise plan to maximize the results. Even if it is just walking. Get moving!
