It’s four days before Christmas and I am sick. I’m talking coughing, sneezing, stuffy nose, runny eyes, stiff body and I still have to go to work kind of sick. I’m starting to accept the fact that I am chronically ill, literally and I need to do a better job at protecting my immune health.

I love this digital scale. It came at the perfect time. I am currently on a health journey and I am I monitoring my weight. I was sent the EatSmart Precision 550 Extra Wide Digital Scale to test and review a few weeks ago.
