    did you set the new ones to zero ...often new scales need to be adjusted

    maybe you need a big poo?

    Don't obsess about your weight....just eat healthy and be happy.

    my daughter has suddenly put on nearly a stone too! not happy!!!
    GRRRRRRR! :x


    stuuuuupid asda!!

    What have you had for lunch today?.... 1 stone in 12 hours is not bad :-) ....

    As above.. make sure they are are measuring zero when theres no weight on them..

    If not.. take back to asda.... and try some others in store..

    Never trust home scales, in fact chuck them out!!Trust your instinct … Never trust home scales, in fact chuck them out!!Trust your instinct instead, clothes feel loose : losing weightClothes feel tight: Who's been eating the pies?Home scales aren't to be trusted, only time I have ever believed the scales, is when my weight has changed drastically and then I've gone to the chemist (or wherever) and weighed myself on 'proper' scales.



    clothes feel exactly the same :thinking:
    might complain to asda - emotional distress, lol

    maybe you should have put down the bag of doughnuts before jumping on

    and for me...was worrying for you too!

    Make sure the floor is flat and not on carpet, I think this can change the weight.
    Also make sure if it's an old traditional type that the pointer starts at 0 and not 1 :whistling:

Woolies scales got binned,lolRegardless, my clothes have been feeling tighter, all scales results denied, lol!!!The 'c' stuff I cut down on, ie crisps, chocolate, cheese etc.Ass got outdoors and exercisedWorking so far:pThen again I'm so enjoying the packet of crisps I'm eating at the moment, but hey, they're soooooooooo nice man, I can deal with the extra weight,lol



    good idea, i'm gonna try weighing myself on my wii fit in the morning, hope it's not different again, lol
    like i say though my clothes don't feel any different :? and until i bought these new cheap scales i never put on weight:x

    scales, made by the devil you are what you are and shouldnt need scales to tell you any different

    you know what why dont you go get a life and stop worrying about your weight if its not an issue with you and only the scales then forget it as there are people out there with genuine weight issues which are quite severe to say the least.

    I only worry about my weight when my clothes are tight :thumbsup:

    Serious thread?

    *leaves*

    Oh wait, I'm size 6 btw ..... and most probably its your scales.

    Sounds like those scales where you add on 7 stone then divide by 3, multiply by 100 and take away the number you first thought off and theres your answer.

    i'm sorry to hear about your neice, really i am but i really don't see how a semi light hearted thread about asda's cheap (most probably defective) bathroom scales is going to somehow affect people who have eating disorders in a negative way?

    I am great my man is home from hospital.

    He can't stop trying to talk, I can't understand a word because he has a plate in his mouth at the moment.

    Work for me all weekend :-(

    At the hospital the other day my fella's aunty was visitng at the same time as me.

    She said that I looked like I had put weight on.

    Hopefully it was because my figure was exposed in leggings.

    His friend who was visiting said I looked like a film star because I had my sunglasses on :-D

    Hey missp:-D

    Did you think to check in your pocket for all the money you've saved getting this piece of useless measuring device at asda price??:w00t:

    Take it back and hey presto - you 've lost a stone and have a Magnum as a reward.

I am what I am, a comfy size 10.I've been up and below that and those were the times when I always checked my weight, but not checking...... I'm an ok weight.MissP you don't sound overweight, far from it. Guess it's a problem to you if you feel underweight tho'.Funny but the only time I was interested in my weight was when I was underweight,lol, I know that sounds funny, but I knew I was underweight, clothes didn't fit and everyone was inviting me for tea,lol, big portions too.The worst thing is when I put weight on and I was told 'oh you look so much better, now you've put weight on' so much fatter in the face!!! lolI'm always told I get away with it, 'cos I'm tall, I'm 5 8, I don't feel tall, I think everyone shorter is just small,lol.I don't feel skinny, I know I'm not, but I guess I can still get away with describing myself as slim........just.TBH I'm 36 and a mother of 2 daughters, I think I'm allowed a little chubbiness now,lol.Hmm where's that chocolate?:p:p
