I ignore it, too. I've been maintaining for a year, so losing weight is not my goal -- maintaining is. I have a 5-lb range I try to stay in, and I am. Wii Fit lectures mean nothing to me... I know what I'm doing, thanks to SparkPeople. ;)

Yeah, I've been lectured, too, for natural weight fluctuations. Weighing myself daily has really educated me about how much my weight fluctuates for reasons other than fat loss/gain - for instance, I weigh a pound or two more from water retention if my dinner the previous night was higher in sodium than usual. It would be nice if Wii Fit was a little smarter about doling out the lectures based on tracking trends over time. I tend to take the anthropomorphic scale's "advice" on these matters with a grain of salt (no pun intended).
I was very sick on Sunday..couldn't eat/drink so I lost like 7 pounds when I felt well enough to be up and around on Monday evening. So my weight loss was recorded on the Wii Fit .. then Tuesday I was back up 1.6 pounds from just eating normal and drinking again. The Wii Fit gave me a little "lecture" and I had to pick what was my cause of weight gain. Yet it tells you that your weight will go up and down by about 2 pounds daily. I guess I'm just saying I wish the software was a bit different.
