It doesn’t help very much when you buy a scale from a chain store that is digital, but it doesn’t work like it should. I’ve had this happen with 3 different ones that I’ve purchased. I wasted money on all three. The nurse at my doctor’s office told me that I should look for a medical grade digital scale because I will find hat the quality is higher over all and they are factual. I was stunned that the scale at their office was 5 pounds over what I thought my weight may be. I feel it is pretty important to know the correct answer about how much fat loss you need to be at the right weight for your body.
Being tired of how uncomfortable I feel in my clothing and on a general basis is what prompted me to take charge of my weight. Yes, I am older now and in my 40s, but I don’t know of anyone else who is as overweight as me who feels so tired and uncomfortable all the time. I keep gaining, so my clothes become uncomfortable. Your clothing should always be comfortable enough that you are not aware of it constricting any part of your body or hurting you. My waistbands were very uncomfortable. I could both see and feel different shirts that I wear looking and feeling tight over my arms, chest, etc. I often felt like I needed to unbutton and unzip my pants when I would sit down.
I also realized that I needed to take my weight gain seriously. I love to eat, but I ate just about anything that came across my path without actually weighing myself for a long time. After wasting money on cheap scales, I bought a digital scale that is from a good company. Now, I am fully aware of exactly how much I weigh and what I need to lose.
