My bathroom scale has been very evil. Since January it has said the same #. This is no matter what time of day, naked or clothed it didn't matter. My Wii Balance board said something of 10-15 lbs different. However, Lately I've been stuck between a few lbs. I've been able to fit in size 12 jeans, my measurements have shrunk, yet the weight has fluctuated between 182 and 178 Not very convincing for me. While the Bathroom scale tells me 189. Well I recalled, that the Balance board doesn't work as well on carpet, so I did it on a hard surface. BAM 20lbs have been lost over the month. Which makes some sense to me, maybe not that much, but it's believe able than 189. I'm still going to try another way to weigh myself but for now I am going to believe the 20lbs lost, because I haven't fit in a size 12 jeans for a couple of years and I was able to get in comfortably. If I find something of a different weight, I'll be sad, but I won't let it ruin my day or my progress of exercising every day.
Update- I did the balance board on 2 other different surfaces. One, had me at 185 and the other surface had me at 195. So I am going to say it's not very accurate. I think the best way is for me to use a scale from a doctors office. The other thing, is I can't see me gaining weight with some shifts in my fat like my muffin top is disapearing just not my belly, and measurements are shrinking. I can't imagine Fat or muscle making that big of a difference. So I'm going to stick to the balance board on the the lifts for steps until otherwise, at least it is motivation. What do you guys think?
Updated part 2
I got weighed on a real scale, 181 so I guess that is where I will be. So the Balance Board isn't too far off, and the bathroom scale either. I guess I'll go back to the real way. But I was told, that I weighed 202 at the end of Feb by my Dr. office so I have lost the 21 lbs So that is a good thing. =)
