Scale Issues - To Use or Not To Use New Scale Reading is Off by +4lbs

Wednesday, December 14, 2011

This is a small issue I am sure but I just don't know what to do. I had been weighing myself each week since the very start on my Wii Fit Plus Board and program. I did weigh myself from my mom's digital scale the 1st time to be sure I was getting the same readings and they matched though each week afterwards I continued to weigh myself only on my Wii. One week I accidentally started up my body test a 2nd time only minutes after doing it that day already because rather than what I should have selected which was training I accidentally chose body test again, this time it gave me a different (higher) number.

So for one of my weight loss treats hubby got me a brand new Digital Scale and I now want to use it but my weight shows as being 4LBS more than what my Wii shows. How do I go about deciding on which weight I should now go by since I have been tracking it with others following me in support?

I have put this question out there on my WL Community on YouTube but I wonder if perhaps I would get more feed back on here. I remember somewhere I read this being an issue for another user. I don't know how she dealt with it though. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance

    I have a scale which does the same thing the FIRST time I step on it....then I let it clear out and step on it a second time and it shows my true weight (it starts at 0 rather than at 5 lbs)...is your scale doing this? Hope you can get some advice which helps :)
