Scale Inconsistencies

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

I took my annual physical fitness test at work today (which I totally rocked). I weighed in at 154 and they took 3 pounds off for my clothes and recorded my weight as 151. When I got home and weighed myself with no clothes I weighed 156.9. What gives? I'm going to locate another scale because if I weigh closer to 151 instead of 157 my scale is going in the trash.

    Scales can be so temperamental...not sure why. I have weighed myself at home, fully dressed, then headed to Curves and weighed there. I have been right on, or had a three pound discrepancy. I just try to remember it's just a snapshot at that moment, nothing more. I wish you better luck on finding a more reliable scale than mine :-)

    I know what you mean. At work we have the opportunity to get a discount on our part of the health insurance premium if we meet a BMI Goal. (Naturally I don't meet the goal BMI, ;) but they offer a "reasonable alternative" of working out in the gym 30 min a day 3 times a week). The scales they use weigh me about 5-6 pounds higher than mine at home, so if I ever get my BMI down, I'll have to remember that little discrepancy. My scales are also temperamental (or maybe just mental.) I can weigh myself in the same birthday suit at the same time in the morning under the same conditions and gain or lose 5 pounds. It will also weigh me exactly the same, right down to a tenth of a pound for days in a row. I've had more than one scale do that, so I think it's a gremlin rather than the scale.
