For those that have been following my blog for a while now, you know that I have been trying to lose weight. I used to participate in McFatty Monday, until I achieved my "big" goal, and then I felt that my posts were getting a little repetitive. During those days, I went from 177 lbs to just under 150. My "big" goal was 150, and when I met that, I was happy. BUT...I am still about 12 pounds heavier than I was when I got pregnant with Rylie, and I still strive to see the 130s again.
I am a habitual weigher. I weigh myself every morning before I get in the shower. I know that isn't the best thing to do when you're dieting, but I still do it. I don't really look at each day's weight and worry that one day is higher than the last, but I concentrate more on the trend. If the scale keeps going up, I know I need to evaluate what I have been eating and slow it down. If it keeps going down, then I know I'm on the right track.
The scale we had recently died (probably from my daily weigh-ins), so I was glad to receive a new scale from EatSmart Products. EatSmart is a small business with a focus on helping people obtain healthy lifestyles. They offer nutrition scales, kitchen scales and bathroom scales. I received the EatSmart Digital Bathroom Scale for review.
At first glance, I really liked the large 12" x 13" platform of this scale. I also liked that it came with the 4 AAA batteries that it needs. I unpacked it and installed the batteries and it was ready to go.
Before the first use (or after you move the scale) you have to auto-calibrate it. You just weigh yourself normally and a "C" will appear to let you know it is ready to use. The first weight may not be accurate and can be disregarded. Once the scale has been calibrated it can be used normally.
The EatSmart Digital Bathroom Scale has 4 high precision sensors for consistent and accurate measurement, for weights up to 400 pounds. Another feature of this scale that I really like is that you just stand on it to weigh yourself...you don't have to tap it and wait for it to set to zero. It also has a large LCD display that is easy to read.
Yes, those are my feet, and I am showing you my weight. Why? Because I am proud of it! I am proud that I am still in the 140s and I didn't gain much weight over the holidays. I don't really make New Year's resolutions, but I am determined to lose more. I'm glad I have my EatSmart scale to help!
The EatSmart Digital Bathroom Scale can be purchased through Amazon for $28.95. I highly recommend this scale!
