My Thoughts
I was using the scale for a few weeks before I stopped using it all together. It is larger than my other two digital scales and it is a pretty and shiny black color. It's not very light, but not the heaviest scale that I've ever owned either.  It has a good sized screen to read measurements as well and is easy to read.
I'm about 13 weeks pregnant. I've been weighing myself a few times a week to keep track of my weight. It works well for giving a quick and accurate reading.
My only concern is the fact that I read the manual and only now did I notice that there is a warning that says that it is not intended for use by pregnant women, people with pacemakers or by children under the age of ten. 
How I missed this is beyond me. I have used several digital scales in the past that also provide BMI readings but have never seen such a warning before. This bugs me, and maybe it is simply stated as a precaution, since I did not consider the fact that it sends a small electrical current through the lower body to read the user's BMI. Oddly enough, however, out of all of the times that I have used it, I have never gotten a BMI reading. I simply didn't stand on it long enough to get one. I just didn't see the point of getting my BMI reading done since I know that I will be gaining extra fat through the pregnancy. I simply wanted to know my regular weight. Am I completely safe? I hope so. It is entirely my fault for somehow missing that part when reading the instruction manual when the scale arrived. 

Another thing? It actually sounded really cool---you are supposedly able to sync your scale, through bluetooth, with your phone!
Like I said, it sounded very cool, but no matter how many times I attempted to do this, I could not get the program to download. I kept getting error messages and then just gave up all together. I can see how it would be nice to keep track of your weight gains and losses on your phone, but it's not 100% necessary for me.

Overall, it is a pretty scale like I said and it does have cool features, and if you can get the bluetooth feature to work for you, then that's great. 
However, if you are pregnant or have a pacemaker, it would probably be best to steer clear of a device like this one, unless your doctor says otherwise. 

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

Choose the right CBD for your daily routine

Can I ask you a question? Have you heard of the endocannabinoid system? If you thought “no” — You are not alone. Most people have no idea it exists… Yet, your endocannabinoid system (ECS) is a neural network that exists throughout your body and in every organ! Appetite, sleep, immune response, mood and pain are all regulated by your ECS and can become imbalanced. In fact, if you are experiencing issues such as inflammation, tremors, stress, lack of appetite or even pain… Then, it’s very likely that your ECS system is imbalanced. And to put your ECS system back in balance, it is time for you to discover the power of cannabinoids. Today, I hope to make this easier for you… My friends over at Elixinol have an amazing product called 300 mg Cinnamint Hemp Oil Drops Tincture   and  900 mg CBD capsules  that contains full-spectrum, 100% organic hemp cannabinoid extract.

8 Packing Hacks When Moving

Moving is almost rarely enjoyable. I mean, you have to pack up all your stuff just to unpack it again somewhere else? You eat off of paper plates with plastic utensils for your last week because you know your kitchen takes the most to pack. You shift boxes around for weeks while you try and continue living in your home. It’s just not fun. Certain things can make it more enjoyable or at least easier, however. For instance, if you have found a great apartment for rent center city or similar, then you might find that this takes the sting out somewhat. However, there will still be things you need to bear in mind to ensure that you can do it right. The fun comes on the other end when you get to unpack and decorate somewhere new! Whether you’re moving to a new city, a new apartment, with a significant other, into your first married home…it’s exciting doing something new.
