I’ve never allowed scales in my house. I have a love/hate relationship with them. When I was attending Weight Watchers there was no need for them, I was weighing myself once a week at the meeting. When I stopped going to Weight Watchers I didn’t want scales in case I started putting weight back on and that would just upset me. What you don’t know doesn’t hurt you, right?
It’s only 7 weeks until our wedding so I need to be super careful with my diet. I’m happy at the weight I am, however I can’t gain any weight as my wedding dress has been fitted to the shape I am now. No pressure Alex.
My mum had scales at home when I was younger and I remember they were never very accurate, every day would be different. Another reason why I haven’t bothered getting some for our house. So when I was given the opportunity to review the Ozeri Precision II scales, I thought now is a better time than any. I really need to be watching my weight leading up to the big day.
The Ozeri Precision II scales are so easy to use. They are much quicker that scales I have used in the past. They weigh you almost instantly when you stand on them. The ‘step on’ technology means there is no tapping required, you simply stand on the scale and wait for your weight to appear. They feature a new widescreen LCD with xBright technology that provides immediate and easy to read results in all light conditions. Day or night, there’s no avoiding that weekly weigh in!
After testing them for a few weeks, on different surfaces in different rooms, I have noticed the weight they give you varies depending on the surface you are using. It’s very important that you weight yourself on a hard, even surface, or your weight will be inaccurate. For example, on the carpet in my bedroom I weighted 5 stone. So i’m guessing that wasn’t 100% correct, right? I made sure I tested the scales every morning on the hard surface in my bathroom and I can say honestly they weighed me the same each day.
For a little treat they come with a bonus tape measure for waist, thigh, arm and other measurements, and a body fat calliper to confirm your weight management progress as muscles grow and unwanted fat goes away. Not necessarily something everyone needs but worth having if you are on a strict programme.
Overall I am really impressed with these scales. They have changed my perception on bathroom scales, and I’m not so scared of owning them!
Now lets hope they are nice to me and tell me I weigh the same each day. (Must stop eating take aways.)
