Yeah, I always make sure they balance the doc's scale before they weigh me. My scale and their scale are both on point. At work we also have an old scale like the ones at the doc's office in our lunch room because we do the whole Biggest Loser thingy and I make sure to balance it everyday because people like to mess with it and change it to cheat. Ha!
The ones in the doctors offices can be wrong too if they are not checked that was told to me by a nurse at my doctors office. They had two different scales and one was off by 10 lbs! Go Figure! I use my digital one at home only had it for about 6 months and so far it is right on target with the doctors scale (the one the works!! LOL)

It is so funny that you mention this subject....i weighed myself today on my weight watchers scale...gym scale and they both say something totally different..I go to the doctor tomorrow and I am going to see what that scale says (smile)...I hope that the numbers are less than the both of the otheres!!!!!

I am so happy BBQ queens..... I was at the doctor's office 2day and stepped on the old fashion scale and guess what it said 288!!!! I KNOW, I KNOW IT SEEMS LIKE ALOT OF POUNDS BUT MY SCALE AT HOME WAS SAYIN 312.5 AND JUST LAST WEEK IT WAS READING 319!!
SO YESSSS MY QUEENS, MY WEIGHT WATCHES SCALE IS NOT WORKIN PROPERLYY*!! I HAVE HAD IT FOR THE PASS 6YEARS NOW AND I GUESS ITS NO MORE GOOD!
HOWEVER, I AM THANKFULL, THAT IT GAVE ME A WRONG READING OFF 25+ POUNDS , BECAUSE IT HAD CHANGE MY LIFE 4 THE BETTER!
SO MY MESSAGE 2 YOU BEAUTIFUL WOMEN OUT THERE, EVEN DOE, WE ARE THICK IN SIZEs,SOMETIMES OUR SCALE CAN REALLY REALLY READ THE WRONG NUMBERS!
P.S: THE OLD FASHION SCALEs ARE THE BEST! (the ones with the height mearsurement! the 1's that you have 2 balance in the middle) GOD BLESS!
