I've noticed over the years that it seems no two scales are ever the same. I have found as much as 20 lb difference between one scale and another.
Also weighing at different times of day makes a difference. Typically you weigh least first thing in the morning.
My Wii Fit weighs me about 7 or 8 lbs different than my regular scale.
Somebody gave me good advice once when I asked about a similar issue. They said, just pick one scale and stick with it. Scales may be different between each other, but should be consistent with itself.
"There are no shortcuts to anywhere that is worth going."
No two scales are going to be exactly the same. I suggest using one scale for you weight tracking. You can still use both, but when tracking stick with one scale... believe me I have three in the house and not one is the same.

Mine weighs 4-5 pounds less than my bathroom scales and I use extenders. I just figure 4-5 pounds is not that big a deal to me right now. I really like all of the exercise that the Wii Fit offers, so that is not a big issue to me.
I think it does. I started using my Wii without the extenders on my carpet and there was a weight difference.One day I decided to add the extenders and there were a lot of pounds added to it. When using it on the carpet, it is better to use the extenders.

So doesn't mine. But my scale also weighs different then the doctor's. And the wii is closer to the doctor's. I weigh on carpet without extentions. But the carpet isn't real thick just not firm like a hard floor.
Through God anything is possible. Thank you, Lord, for helping me and all the ones who need your help.
