I rarely talk about this to anyone . . .but here I go.
My name is K and yes I have a weight problem. As far back as I can remember it's been like this. But the difference was, I was much more active in my younger years. Played school sports all the way through high school, played college ball, etc. So, I was able to keep it sort of in check.
Through adulthood I always remained heavy. I knew I was heavy, but really didn't do a whole lot to try to change it.
Then about 6 years ago I finally met my "soul mate" and guess what? Yep, it is like we became one. I ate, what he ate. Two sandwiches, heck yeah! Ice-cream? Nachos? Oh yes, yes, yes. Then I got pregnant and my weight was the heaviest it has even been. Though I didn't gain much during pregnancy, afterwards it seemed to stick around and of course I put more and more on.
So, I knew it was time for a change. So a little over a year ago I started watching what I was eating and counting points. The weight (according to my beat up old scale) started to come off. It is hard to describe the old scale. It had the dial, it was cracked, I had it taped, it wasn't pretty.
Then I got the chance to do a review for the Ozeri WeightMaster Digital Bathroom Scale with Microbran Antimicrobial Product Protection.
The WeightMaster Bath Scale by Ozeri is the first bathroom scale to combine an elegant design, Microban's antimicrobial solution and advanced weight measurement technology. The Ozeri WeightMaster uses 4 of the latest generation G sensors to accurately capture weights in increments of 0.2 pounds or 0.1 kilograms. The Ozeri WeightMaster features the industry's largest blue-backlit LCD with xBright technology for easy-to-read results from afar, and utilizes ultra ABS slip-resistant material on the outside with impact-resistant tempered glass on the inside. Whether your goals are weight loss or muscle gain, the Ozeri WeightMaster Bath Scale features the latest generation of StepOn technology to display your body weight upon stepping onto the scale, with no tapping required. It also turns off automatically to conserve battery power, and runs on 2 AAA batteries (included). Your Satisfaction is 100% Guaranteed.Product Dimensions: 13.5 x 1 x 14" and weighs in at just 4.7 pounds.
Well, this is a big STEP UP from what I was using. I loved how as soon as you step on the scale you get your weight, and you get an accurate weight. I have actually stepped on scales likes this in the past 5 times in a row, one right after another, and got different weights at least 3 of the 5 times. On this one, I didn't. The weight was the same each time. The number is easy to read. No squinting.
It is sleek and easy to store. Only 4.7 pounds and you can see from the pictures of how thin it is. You can stand it up and fit it into tight spaces to store it away until you want to use it again. Fits pretty much anywhere. Have mine stored behind the bathroom door, but I have had it in the little cabinet under the sink and it fits in there perfectly as well.
Plus, finally a bathroom scale that fights bacteria on the surface. I have to admit that I never really thought about how many yuckies could have been on my scale surface. But from what I'm reading the bacteria on the surface can double every 20 minutes. Let me be the first to say "ewwwwww." Step on it with wet feet, yuckies get added, the kiddo steps on it after being outside, more yuck added. The Microban Antimicrobial protection fights that, and it fights it for the lifetime of the scale.
I absolutely love it and will continue to use it as I am on my "lets take better care of myself" journey that I have been on for the past year and a half or so. The product appears to be very durable and I think will last a long long time. Just have to replace the batteries every now and again. By the way: it comes with batteries to begin with (and also automatically shuts itself off when you step off of it to save the battery life), so no hunting for those double A's the first time you want to use this scale.
I truly recommend this scale if you are in the market to purchase a new scale.
If you are interested in purchasing one of these scales you can slide right over to Amazon at Ozeri Weightmaster and check it out. Have a pretty good sale price on it right now, less than $30, regular $49.99 and you can get free shipping.
