It's a good question, sorry I don't have the real answer. They must sell them someplace. I also tried to find one a few years ago without any luck. A couple of years ago and prior to that as well when I was still working and very over weight I used to weigh myself on the scale they had in the shipping department where I worked. I'd wait until the men had gone to lunch or were otherwise occupied and just stepped on it when I walked past it. I didn't want anyone there to see what I weighed. It was too much, well over three hundred pounds. The men already knew I was fat they didn't need to know what I weighed as well. The scale was very accurate and could weigh up to 2000 pounds. Thankfully I have lost a lot of weight since then with diet and including the weight of both my legs unfortunenetly due to their amputation last December. I am still overweight about 150 pounds. That may not seem like much to most people, but rememeber that I am missing pretty much all of both my legs so the doctor figures I should weigh no more than 115# or so. It's hard to lose weight when you use a wheelchair as I do. I don't think the doctors really comprehend that sometimes.
They're a bit pricey, but I found several at this site:

Jeannie, I'm sitting here laughing at "everything in the house." I usually say "everything except the house." We just moved across country, and I'm unpacking while hubby is at the old house painting this week. Last night, I ate half a bag of Nutter Butter cookies. After all, peanut butter is a good snack, right?
I was on steroids for quite a while for my IBD, and had borderline blood sugars and A1C's during that time. My wonderful internist chose to treat aggressively, putting me on the diet and exercise regimen, and ever since I've been well within the normal range. For the most part (never mind last night, I can't undo that) I try to stay on the regimen still. Even though I'm off steroids, I choose to assume DM lurks around the corner for me if I go too wild, so having cookies in the house is a real rarity.
