Nice one BrewmasterBill. :)

I weigh myself in the bathroom. Honestly? The differences in the floor aren't going to make a whole lot of difference at the end of the day. As others said, just make sure you're weighing yourself in the same place every day.

I just wouldn't choose carpet, although a shallow pile or berber probably wouldn't be the end of the world.

THERESA_92 - took this advice, my neighbors were not pleased. But what am I supposed to do? That robe adds 2 pounds, I'm certainly not going to leave it on.

If you don't have a place in your house, you could weigh yourself on your driveway or in your garage. I know it's a bit strange, but the concrete is hard enough not to throw off your scale.

On hard floor, not on the carpet. I weigh myself in my bathroom in the mornings just before I hop in the shower.

Just make sure you weigh yourself in the same spot every time. In reality, it's unlikely that a scale that works will be dramatically different from any other scale. Stay in the same spot every time and focus on which direction the numbers go more than what the numbers actually are until you get closer to your goal.

I would probably use the bathroom. I also have a tile with grout floor, and it's slightly uneven, but not enough to throw off my scale in any serious way. This might depend on the type of scale you have. I think if you weigh yourself in the same place on the floor every day, it will be consistent enough over time.

If the sun room is truly the best floor, you could weigh yourself in the same clothes every day, and then weigh your clothes (dressed in something else) to learn how much you weigh without clothes.

My Sparkpage is set to private, but I'm open to SparkMail!

I have a 61 year old home with lots of creaks and whatnot and have a hard time finding a good surface to weigh myself. The tile on my bathroom floor are those little square tiles of different heights with grout (1"x1" to 1"x3" and so on), The hardwood floors creak so much so I figure that would be an uneven surface. The kitchen is laminate floors but to me, it doesn't feel "hard" enough. Other than that, there's carpet and a sunroom with big windows and I don't want to get naked in front of those with my neighbors!!!

What do you think would be my best option?
