Take off your shoes
While doing a weight check on yourself, you should remember that you must take off your belongings that could contribute a reasonable proportion of weight. For this, before stepping up on the scale, you must take of your shoes and place them on a side. Keep in mind that you are not doing this to have a rough idea about your weight but to know the exact figure, thus you must put your shoes aside.
Take off other belongings
If you are carrying other things, you must also put them out and place them on a table. You should not underestimate the need of putting extra things aside and if you are wearing a heavy jacket, you must also take that off.
Reach the scale
After you have took off the extra things, now you should step on the medical weighing scale. Remember that, it is important that you reach the scale slowly and firmly. You should never approach the scale in a rush and give yourself a pause after you have stepped on the scale. It is of reasonable importance that when on the scale, an individual should stand still and stop moving.
Move more weight to the right
When on the weighing scale, you must move more weight to the right. At the right extreme of the scale’s weight bar, you will find an arrow that will depict the balancing of the bar. You must wait for the arrow to fall down and at that time, you should stand still and note the reading.
Move less weight to right
Now you should repeat the same with a much lesser weight. You must wait for the arrow to balance out and when the arrow is levelled, stop moving and take the reading.
Add both readings
Now you should sum up both values and the result will be your actual weight.
