TALKIN' SCALE...mine yelled at me this morning!

Wednesday, May 20, 2009

Good Morning to all,
One of the team leaders of one of the teams that I belong to:
Have FUN & get RID of 200+:
and I believe it was TRACYZABELLE
made a post recently about a website that specializes in LARGE STUFF for Large People

www.livingXL.com
is the website if my memory is correct

anyway, I found this talking scale that goes to 550 pounds and with shipping to my home, it cost must less than $100.00. Not cheap, but then again I won't have to go to one of the Doctors offices EVER again to weigh! I'm too big to fit on my wife's scale and it was a big drag to have to plan on driving to the doctors office during regular hours. Now I can weigh in ANY TIME I WANT
unless the talkin' part will wake someone, LOL

So I stepped on this morning and it yelled at me!
It said
"HEY WISE GUY, ONE PERSON AT A TIME"

well, maybe not that exactly, but it did talk to me
how neat is that
I did not even have to bend over to strain to look at the numbers (digital) to try to catch a steady weight. It even tells you when it's ready for you to step on it.

I weighed yesterday afternoon and took my preliminary weight 439
but this morning it was 437.6, which is a 2.1 pound loss for the week

you already know which number that I'm going with, right!
I drink too much coffee and that water weight is probably the difference, so now I can have regular weigh-ins like the rest of my SP buddies.

Check out the livingXL.com website to see if there might be something that
YOU HAVE TO HAVE

Good luck with your journeys

    Glad you are enjoying your new scale. It is great to not have to go to the doctor's office to get weighed. I fluctuate on my weight daily. I always take the lowest number which is usually first thing in the morning. i love that website too. I think the camping chairs look interesting.

    Congrats on getting a new scale! If it starts talking to you when you are nowhere near it, run the other way!

    I love that web site. I just bought an outdoor chair from them and a talking scale. I had the same problem. I couldn't monitor my weight, unless I went to the Dr. and that gets expensive, after awhile.

    OK SO I JUST TYPED A WAY TO LONG COMMENT AND THEN got in a hurry and lost it! Argh!
    Well, it seems i own the EVIL twin to your scale! But i had to shut the voice off, i can just hear my Very LOUD and very OUTSPOKEN 7yr old going to school and saying " wanna know what my mom's scale said this morning.... "
    NOT ready to go there! LOL
    Just remember if you weigh everyday you get crazy numbers, at least I do, ut oh maybe it's just trying to tell me something about the crazy part?!?!?! anyway, my weight was fluctuating by 3-4 pounds a DAY, i was getting obsessive about it so i only use it once a week now! LOL
    I am gonna go check out the website though, only one thing i like as much as GOOD food and that's SHOPPING! emoticon
