I need to lose tons of weight, and here’s what I’m using to do it

And it’s not just a New Year’s resolution.

I very well could be 600 pounds. I wouldn’t know at this exact moment because there are few consumer-grade scales that can measure that much weight, but the last time I went to the doctor and got weighed, I had to drive to a specialty clinic where they had scales that didn’t top out at 400 pounds.
