When the new Withings body scales arrived the other day, my plan was to weigh myself once or twice per week, but it's too much fun -- so I've weighed myself three days in a row now.

After 35 years of not even having a scales in my home, I've gone from getting weighed by my doctor's staff -- only during my annual physicals, to buying a wifi-enabled scales that sends my stats to a private account on the web and to an iPhone app.

Using the e.ggtimer.com site, I weigh myself 30 minutes after I get up.  Best feature:  logging lean mass and fat mass, in addition to total body weight, makes it easy to track body fat percentage.  The lean mass is the most important number for me. As we age, maintaining muscle mass is critical to a healthy, productive and mobile lifestyle.
