Disclosure: I got this product as part of a review opportunity, but all opinions remain – as always – my own.

ScaleLet’s face it: Sometimes you have to know how much you weigh.  Even though I’ve made it a point to say that size is important, but the number on the scale isn’t, I think we can all agree that sometimes the number matters.  I’ve ranted on this very blog before about “Burn the Damn Scale”, mainly because we often use the scale as a faulty way of determining how healthy we are.  But the fact is, sometimes you need to know how much you weigh.  Sometimes, the number matters.  And when it does, I have to say I’m really liking this product.  The Ozeri Rev Digital Bathroom scale is the perfect way to keep track of what you weigh!

I received this item as a review, and as I am trying very hard to avoid scales (actually, I’m completely lying…I get on it *at least* every other day), I didn’t really want to use this scale.  However, once I opened the box, I was so pleasantly surprised!  This scale is sleek, and very contemporary in its design.  Not like the old white plastic ones that you had to tap on….and then wait…while it ran 8’s across the screen over and over….until it said “0”…and THEN you could step on it.  You know the ones I’m talking about, right?  And we opted for those because, if you’re nearsighted like me, you sometimes have to bend over and squint at the rotary scales to see where the needle actually landed.  I mean, God forbid we miss one of those tiny little hash marks between the pounds!  THAT little line is the difference between “How much have I lost?” and “Well, looks like salad for lunch!”.

This scale’s stylish design isn’t the only thing that sets it apart.  It also has —- wait for it —- both digital AND rotary weights, so it’s the choice scale for everyone. It’s made with tempered glass, has a built in alarm (as if we aren’t religious about weighing ourselves already!!), and it also features StepOn technology so you don’t have to tap and wait for it to weigh you!  Just step on and it appears!  Want one?  Here’s a quick link to it: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/b00g0x49vw 

I personally don’t want to depend on that number as an indicator for how I’m doing in my health, but some professions and hobbies require you use that number to determine many things.  Even my fiancé has to “make weight” for the Army.  It’s the widely accessible and acceptable way to keep track of how well we’re taking care of ourselves.  So while I’m not a fan of it being the *only* method of monitoring your health, when the number counts, I’ll be using my Ozeri Rev Digital Bathroom scale!

I received the product mentioned above for free.  Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
