Wife has since dropped some weight but I recall when she first reached 400 pounds. I’m not fixated on a number on the scale but when she told me her weight I was damn proud. It’s tough because she wasn’t necessarily thrilled about it, but she knew I would be and appreciated that.I have gained weight i m now at 400 lbs
No idea about the scale and how they hold accuracy as they get older. If they’re cheap to begin with they may not be all that accurate to start. We have a digital scale that always weighs me about 1-1/2 to 2 pounds heavier than other scales. Unless you’re competing for something that requires a certain weight level from you or you are tracking weight gained or lost, accuracy may not be all that important. Besides even a bad scale isn’t going to weigh you at 200 when you’re closer to 300.I am roughly 5’5” to 5’6” and, according to an old scale, weigh 298 pounds. Question: Do scales become less accurate as they get older?
My mom’s 10-year-old scale said the above-mentioned weight when I first got here a week ago but then said 292 today. The old WW scale at home says about 298 as well — and it’s at least 6-7 years of age.
Maybe I am not standing on them correctly and/or fully? It can be difficult — on the WW scale, anyway — for me to put my legs together.
