I always weigh in the same place, and with the same routine beforehand, so that even if the actual number isn't the most accurate, the loss and gain information is. I wake up, walk around the house for a few minutes, make coffee, use the bathroom, and weigh.

That being said, it's taken me a long time to be less than completely neurotic about the scale, so I'm trying to weigh less often. If it weren't for one of my SP teams doing weekly challenge weigh-ins, I'd try to take a month or so off from the scale entirely.

Hmm, I'm away from home, so I'm relying on gym scales.

How's this for crazy scales. There's one by the blood pressure machine in one gym. It weighed me consistently in the 160s. Then I started using the scale in the gym where I do my workout classes, it would weigh me less than 160, the next day (same time tho). THEN I went to the first gym, weighed myself. Then went to the girls' bathroom and weighed myself, it was like 2lbs different. Crazy. I think the weight by the blood pressure machine is rigged. Or something awful.

My scale is pretty accurate. I can dress to go to the dr. and weigh myself here at home and then when I get to the dr. office some 20 minutes later and it will weigh the same, or within less than a pound. Mine is a Taylor brand and I got it at Target, it was probably $30. or so in price. It sits on a solid floor... Most of the doctors offices are using digital scales these days too...

I don't weigh myself too often though or I'd be Schitzophrenic!! :o)

That is abnormal. Sounds like a problem with your scale

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

What I do is I weigh on mine in all my clothes just before going to the doctor's office. Then when they weigh me there I compare. So far mine is about .5# off, heavier than I should be. It does change depending on the floor, try to put it in the most stable, least creaky location, on a support beam if you know where they are. Unfortunately I do from having to rip out the floor!

Yup; I try to keep mine in the same spot all the time. that way, even if it's not giving me my actual weight it might be telling me whether I've gained or lost something. Really accurate scales cost a little fortune and I'm not willing to spend that on some big hunky thing that takes up so much room in my bathroom...or my LIFE! The best ones are like the ones they used to have in every doctor's office; the ones with the sliding weight across the top.

Mine also does 2/10 increments. If I move it over on the floor it can add or subtract weight also. I've tried it. lol

Conrad, how do you test to tell if your scale is accurate? What brand do you have that you have so much confidence in? Mine is a digital one and it also measures in 2/10 increments but that's no proof of its accuracy.

I have a digital scale that measures in two tenth increments. This morning it said 145.8 pounds, which was a new low weight for me. Having an accurate scale is wonderful!

I got up this morning, peed, weighed. 131

Peed twice more, weighed. 130

Moved the scale to different spots on the floor. 124 and 128.

Sigh.
