Now that I've given birth to Mason and six weeks have passed, it is time to get on the healthy weight loss track. I went to Pilates the other day - first time in gym in over 2 years - and got my butt kicked. Or rather I couldn't feel my abs during the entire hour because it is just a big flabby mess. When I weighed myself on our old scale, it was about 10 lbs lower than at the doctor's office, thereby giving me false hope of weighing less than actual. I was excited to try out the EatSmart Precision GetFit Scale to give me my real measurements.
Not only does this scale look sleek and modern compared to the old scale, it has far technical abilities. The EatSmart Precision GetFit scale measures body fat, body water, body muscle and bone mass in addition to standard weight using their newest ITO BIA technology. The automatic personal detection is based on entering personal information using the touch screen on the scale. Therefore, each time you step on the scale it smartly knows to access your information before displaying your current measurements. After I input my info (after realizing that I am no longer in my 20s), I stepped on the scale and it went to work.
For standard weight just hop on (after calibration to your floor surface) and after the number flashes 3x, it displays your current weight. Please note that you need to calibrate the scale each time you move to a different surface. I was sad to see that I was still 17 pounds over my pre-pregnancy weight but happy that now I can accurately track my weight loss. When I stayed on the scale, the fitness mode kicked in and displayed all the "extra" information regarding my body.
(I jumped right off before taking photo because I am in terrible need of a pedi!)
I am surprisingly in the optimal body fat range and have normal body water with average bone mass. This information is gathered by the low-level electrical signal that passes through your body fat and measures the resistance the signal encounters. You can't feel the signal at all. One needs to consistent in their measurement practices by stepping on the scale at the same time everyday as well as making sure feet are dry as well as no additional factors such as intake of food right before, etc. The scale stores up to 8 different profiles so this is definitely a family scale.
Some additional features include:
- Large 3.5" Blue LCD display with backlight - Easy to read.
- 4 High Precision Sensors - Consistent and accurate measurement
- Measurement Modes: Pounds / Kilos
- Graduation Increments of .2 lbs. / .1kg
- Ultra thin, sleek design with high quality tempered glass platform
- Max Weight: 400 lbs / 180 kgs
- Auto Calibrated; Includes 4 AAA batteries
I do realize that diet is a huge factor in weight loss but hey I'm breastfeeding and must keep up the supply right? However, I am going to try to visit the gym on a regular basis even after I return to work (hopefully) in several weeks and cut down on the sweets. Hopefully that will help the numbness in my arms and hands as well since the doctor did advise losing weight as the remedy. I'll keep you updated on my progress with my awesome scale!
