I am thinking I would leave my start weight alone. It is the most accurate because adjusting it is only a guess - you may have actually lost those 2 pounds. Now that you have a new scale your recordings won't be all over the map!!!

I bought a new scale the other day as my old scale (14+ years) was acting up. It has been giving me readings all over the board with a difference in range of 1.2 lbs. I could never get a consistent reading and the frustrations were mounting, hence the new purchase.

The new scale is dead on consistent every single time I weigh, no matter where in the house that I place it (as long as it's on a hard surface), however the reading is 2 lbs. under what my old scale has been reading.

Do I trust the new scale and adjust my weight accordingly? (obviously I would need to adjust my start weight as well).

I'd rather just stick to the weight on one scale but I want to be able to trust the number. Which one do you think is right or how can I test it?

Thanks for your help!
