I have never been one to try to keep up with the neighbors. I suppose the Depression Mentality “Waste not; want not,” made me the way I am. I have lived in the same house for 42 of my adult years. I don’t trade-in my automobiles. I drive them, maintain them, repair them (actually that is hubby’s job) until they retire or perhaps expire hundreds of thousands miles later.
I think I bought my scale with trading stamps, no kidding. They were still big back in the 60’s almost a half century ago when I came of age. It records weights up to 300 pounds – that’s it. People just weren’t as fat then. It is bug, clunky, white, and certainly not digital – call it functional ugly. I hide it under the cabinet in my bathroom. The interesting thing about it is that the user has to calibrate it to zero. Can’t tell you how many times hubby claimed he hadn’t gained even an ounce then I found the dial set back much more than just a few ounces….
So when Conair asked me to review its Weight Watchers by Conair Glass Body Analysis Scale (Model WW52) I eagerly agreed. It was like grabbing the brass ring on a carousel horse. I lost almost ninety pounds in the last two years. Problem is that some of them are creeping back. I know that shedding fat depends on various things like body weight, body fat, body water, bone mass, and body mass index. Believe it or not, this particular Conair scale measures them ALL at once. What’s more, its memory will record me, hubby, even whoever happens to be visiting. Wow!
Four-user memory makes the Weight Watchers Glass Body Analysis Scale truly a whole family scale. I really appreciate its quick, accurate digital technology. It measures up to 400 pounds (This is good for the times when I am traveling and must step on the scale with luggage to find out if–change that to how much I have over packed). It also has long-life batteries.
Hubby weighed himself in kilograms–in case the USA goes metric.
I insisted on a redo in English.
Seriously, with obesity reaching epidemic proportions in all age groups across America, it is time for everyone to get his/her eating habits into perspective. Start with proper nourishment, water intake, and appropriate exercise. I intend to monitor myself with the Weight Watchers by Conair Glass Body Analysis Scale.
Available at Target and online at www.conair-store.com, this scale retails for about $49.99. Its stainless steel 12.2″ x 12.8″ impact-resistant tempered safety glass platform, 1.9″ LCD screen, and blue backlight make it a must have tool.
