If yours and the doctor's both say the same, then I think those scales are correct, and the kmart ones are wrong!!! Don't get the kmart ones! Get ones that tell you the right number :wink:

I just got a garden variety mechanical scale from Big W for $11... because I broke my whiz-bang digital body fat etc etc scales in temper the other day - threw the damn thing!!! (it felt good seeing it break into pieces, but yeah, I couldn't revive it, so sad). Anyway, I think the mechanical ones should be more accurate, digital ones... don't know, I think they just spit out any old number they feel like!

First of all, your weight is almost overweight, and you have to deal with it. Regardless of the scales it self, you need to start a serious diet and workout, and this will be good for your blood pressure too.

I agree with both of the above members, but I really think Kmart is wrong! Want to excuse my poor English, by the way ;) ..
