I agree with SassyJay about picking a scale and sticking to it. It's hard to find 2 scales that agree with each other, but as long as they correspond (both scale and Wii show that you lost 2 pounds, even though the resulting number is different) you can use either one as a guide.

My Wii and bathroom scales are reasonably close, given I weigh on the bathroom scale before breakfast/coffee and on the wii a couple hours later, when I'm ready for exercise. I have the Wii on carpet, but do have the risers on. Yours shows a big difference and I wouldn't be happy, either, but just disregard one of them and track the other. The actual number doesn't matter as much as noticing the up and down part. You are losing! Keep up the good work.

i have it on a well padded floor. i guess that it is Thanks for all the input ... and i did a weekley weigh in on the bathroom scale and i am down in one week from 279 to 272.2 YAY i lost 6.8 lbs this week !!!!!
I have long believed in picking a scale and sticking to it.
My bathroom scale never agrees with my doctor's scale never agrees with my Wii scale. So I choose to "believe" my bathroom scale because it is the one that I use most often.
It's not so much that I truly believe, but that I use that as my point of reference. As long as my point of reference number gets incrementally smaller each time I get on that scale (don't I wish?) I'm a happy gal.
Of course, I only get on my bathroom scale second thing in the morning. First, I have to go to the bathroom. After three meals and 8 glasses of water, I'm pretty sure the resulting number would not please me. And it's all about me, doncha know?
I have had that happen before. If you are weighing on carpet, be sure to have the risers on the feet. If it keeps on, what I did was to see if it stayed consistent on how much it was off and just figured the difference.
