Then the next time we bought a fancy digital one. It can record your personal weight, and by keyed in your height, age and gender, it can calculate your fat, muscle, and water rate over your body weight. I finally figured out how to do it. This time the weight is about right, however my fat rate is 38%. People know me always say I have 0% of fat, how then do I have 38%, which is defined as obese. I know 10 years ago my fat rate was about 19.8%, lower than the normal range 21-23%. This time my boyfriend’s fat rate is lower than me 25%. He couldn’t believe the accuracy of the fat ratio of this scale either, but I still decide to keep it, at least I can weight myself, and see other index.
Actually, keeping a standard is a hard thing, and I need to be confident about my lifestyle and eating habit. Being able to measure the scale is not a piece of cake, especially people living in the cosmopolitan city that people have chance to taste all kinds of delicious food. Keeping a standard for a long time is also a tough job, because you need to consistently give people your brand image, and control yourself persistently with high discipline. Once you establish your brand image, you can have your brand attitude to judge whether the “scale” is accurate, or even your royal “fan” will declare for you that you are the lead of the trend and you are the standard in the industry.
