Weighing yourself when very very big?

Postby Blondie » Tue Aug 29, 2006 2:15 pm

How do you guys weigh yourself? :?:
What I mean is, those who are (or were) over 150kg, where/how do you weigh yourself because the largest scales I have found are ones that go to 150kg and then ERR. :(
I want to kick off my weight loss plan but I would like to track my weight loss to keep motivated. I really don't want to have to use a weigh bridge or something like that. :oops:

Thanks for that. :D
I had thought of those. The chemist has one but its out the front of the shop like some sort of skill tester and well, I am sure I don't have to go on why I don't want to weigh myself there. :oops:

Doctor is hopelss. He had ones from the drug reps but those broke (a kid smashed them - glass) so he replaced them with your cheapy $9.99 ones. :roll:

Thanks for the idea though, might give a few chemists a ring.

I mean to say in my original post that I am probably not much more then 150 (as if that isn't bad enough) as I have used these scales in the past but enough to now ERR them out. :oops:

Hi Blondie welcome to the forum and the beginning of your new weight loss journey to a fitter and healthier you!!

I am also quite large and have just recently purchased some Weight Watchers scales that weigh up to 172kgs. I was weighing in at the chemist but found they were too inconsistent (jump on and they tell you you've gained and then get back on just to make sure and they tell you you've was too much for me!!)

Not sure of your budget, but I hope that helps
