Does anyone had a recommendation for a good bathroom scale?

I've quietly been keeping tabs on all of my food again and am a week and a half in. They say it takes 21 days to develop a habit, and I'm over halfway there - relying on my mild OCD to keep this ball rolling! Either way, it's probably time that I invest in scales, so I can see if this is doing any good.

After 21 days I'm going to add some regular exercise. I don't know if you can build on habits like Legos, but that's what I'm going to try!

My biggest test will be over the Valentine's day weekend, when the band will play 3 sold-out shows here in town. It's hardest backstage among the revelers, where everyone is usually drinking and eating from the catering. This time I'll have to employ some serious self-control to keep from overdoing it every night - one night maybe. :)

I bought a shipping scale (royal brand) with a cordless remote readout (uses a 9v) and it makes weighing in actually kind of fun. Reads weight to hundredths of a lb, and I know its accurate, since it's legal for trade! Bonus: I can weigh myself, hit the tare button to zero the scale, then pick up my dog and see how much he weighs --no math! This is the one I bought, although I thinkI got it at Office Max, not Sam's club:

@Oddbarn, great idea! i settled for a plain digital bathroom scale that is accurate to the tenth of a kilo.. but yours sounds a real treat.Going to see if it comes in a UK flavor.. xxx I too have dogs that need weigh ins as well lol going to really search for this beauty..

@Jennytheveg - drinking backstage is a hassle when you want to avoid the temptation - i found making a couple of bottles of fizzy water "cocktail" that had flavor and sweetness but no alco, really helped me when i went to gigs.. it was more about not feeling like i had some dull craptastic bevvy.. so i made them spicy and tasty using things like tamarind paste, ginger, lime juice etc.. exotic!
