Today I bought a Weight Watchers-sponsored scale that also measures body fat percentage, body fat weight, water percentage, bone mass and tells you your BMI. Great deal for $30, right??
I'm wondering now, though, how accurate it is. Last night I weighed on my old digital scale for the last time, and there's nothing wrong with this scale other than that I wanted something that measures body fat % too. The old scale measured me at 243.5 last night. This afternoon I stepped onto the new WW scale for the first time, and it told me 236.8. Barring having a terrible stomach flu (which I don't!), I can't see how I lost 6.7 pounds in about 18 hours. There's just no way. I've eaten and hydrated today, and it's not like I've gone to the bathroom 20 times.
For some reason, I'm wondering if WW scales do "vanity weighing" to make you feel just a little better about yourself when you buy their scale, i.e. "Wow, this scale says I'm 5ish pounds less than I thought! I love this scale!"
What are your thoughts?
