EatSmart Scale Review + My Scale Views

IMG_3720.JPG

I recently received a scale for review from EatSmart Products. I received the Digital Bathroom Scale and have been very happy with it.

Scale Features

  1. Large 3.5″ LCD display — easy to read
  2. 4 high precision sensors — consistent and accurate measurement
  3. Max weight of 400 lbs / 180 kgs
  4. Sturdy tempered glass top and large 12″ x 13″ platform
  5. Auto calibrated; auto power-off; 4 AAA batteries included

What I Liked Best about the Scale

  1. Scale doesn’t slip around on the floor.
  2. There is no tapping needed — you simply get on and your weight appears.
  3. The LCD display is backlit — no need to turn on that bathroom light in the morning! Plus our bathroom light has an annoying fan, so this is great for when we are trying to be quiet.

My Scale Views

I know everyone has different opinions on using scales as a measure of weight loss, health, fitness, etc. I agree that there are many ways to measure success, but I still think the scale is useful. I used to have an unhealthy relationship with the scale back in high school, but I have learned to use the scale for it’s intended purpose — to weigh myself. The scale doesn’t have control of me anymore and I am so proud of myself for that.

Anyway, the most common way I use my scale is to estimate hydration needs after my long runs. I weigh myself before my long run on the weekend and note the weight. Then, when I get home + before jumping in the shower, I weigh myself again. For each pound lost I drink 2-3 cups of water. (I usually have about 1-1.5 cups of chocolate milk as well.) It’s as simple as that friends.

Do you use the scale? If so, what is the main way you use it for?

    I have only used a scale to weigh myself and I don’t do that very often anyway. But that is a great idea to weigh for hydration purposes after exercise. You are full of good ideas!

    I weigh myself every now and then. I used to get caught up in it, but now it really doesn’t mean too much to me. My clothes are a better indication of weight loss or gain!

    This scale looks nice though. I have one that I hide in the bathroom because its just so gaudy looking :)

    This is the scale that we have at my house too!! I love that it tells you your muscle mass and calories; it’s cool to watch those numbers go up as my strength training pays off! I just found your blog through nourish and flourish and let me tell you that I am SO glad that I did!!! I love your posts and they’re all so helpful and entertaining;) I’m subscribing to your blog and really looking forward to reading more. I just started my blog a few weeks ago, so come check it out and let me know what you think;) (*ps your eyes are SO blue and pretty-I love it!)

      Ohhh I think the scale you are talking about is the precision — mine was just the basic digital. But yours sounds more fun! Thank you so much for finding my blog and the compliments about it (and my eyes!) You’re so fun!

    I weigh myself once a week typically – although sometimes I will go a few weeks without stepping on it.

    I do it more as a check – but rarely have much faith in the number – my weight fluctuates so much during the month!

    Hm. I never thought to use a scale that way…to measure for hydration. That is such a smart use of the scale, I have to say! Though, I still do not own a scale of my own because I still do have that habit of letting the numbers get to me…I wish it wasn’t the case but it’s true, sadly. So rather than battle it, I avoid the scale entirely and focus just on how I feel, how the jeans fit, etc.

    That pizza in the above post looks great! Gotta try egg pizza sometime!

    That scale looks fancy! I usually don’t like to use them, but I do use a simple digital one every now and then just to make sure I’m not going beyond my normal range…

We Love to Hear From You
