I'm really frustrated right now with my Wii Fitness board because I got on yesterday (right after weighing myself on my digital scales) and it has me at 153. My digital scales say 150 and I've really noticed that the Wii Fitness board can be crazy sometimes in the weights that register on there.
My daughter (who is in the normal range for her age/height) will sometimes register 1 1/2 pounds different from the day before and the same thing happens to me. I know your body weight fluctuates all day so I'm sure that is part of the reason for that, but the digital scales don't have those type of fluctuations unless of course I am on my period or have eaten a lot of salt.
I still am afraid to go with the lower weight that shows up on my digital scales (why I don't know, but I guess I don't want to show a lower weight on here if I'm really not that weight), but I think I will start going by my digital scales instead.
They are showing a weight loss, while the Wii Fit is not.
Ever since I've noticed no weight loss on the Wii Fit I've been trying to increase my calorie intake a little bit to see if that is the issue. I normally eat around 1200-1250 and sometimes around 1300 calories a day (Spark People put my calorie range from 1200-1550) to see if that changes anything, but so far nothing.
Of course I panic sometimes because I search the internet (and I realize you can't believe everything you read online) and saw somewhere that if you ate only 1200 calories a day and then later changed it to 1300, you would start to gain weight!!!!
I talked with my doctor a month or so ago about my calorie intake (1200) and he told that was fine and that I could even go down to 1000 calories a day and not go into starvation mode. I have no desire to go that low, but now I'm worried that if I continue eating around the 1350 range (which actually is too much food for me sometimes due to my being used to eating around 1200-1250) I will gain.
Realistically I don't see how that could be since it's still way under what I used to eat in calories a day, but I guess I will have to experiment to find out for sure. I've worked too hard though to start gaining weight back so not sure what to do.
