    No nonsense, practical tips.

  • Put one foot on each scale and add the weights indicated on each of them

  • This method may give you a slightly inaccurate weight

  • Another option is to find an accurate outdoor freight scale, and use it after hours to weigh yourself

  • You will probably need to bring someone else along to read the weight, since the display is usually physically separated from the scales themselves

  • Beam balance scales have a hook on the end of the beam from which you can hang a counterweight

  • This hook makes it possible to weigh a person who weighs more than the scale is marked up to

  • Your doctor should have some counterweights for just this purpose

  • Weigh a person on the scale (one whose weight the scale can measure)

  • Weigh the same person again

  • The difference between the two weights is the amount the stethoscope subtracts

  • Now, weigh yourself with the stethoscope on the scale

  • Add the amount the scale reads to the amount the stethoscope subtracts, and you have your weight

  • If a doctor chalks it up to weight or suggests weight loss as a cure, find another doctor
