Ok at the start of the week, I went to my local Chemist and weighed myself. It said I lost 3 kg and when I went to the Centre I joined yesterday it said I lost only 1kg.

Was I fouling myself or do scales read diffently?

All scales are example is that on myhome scales I was 118 kgs, at the GPs I was 120 and on mum's scales I was 110! :shock: Only ever weigh on the same set of scales, because they are all sooo different :wink:

yep gracie is right, only weigh in on the one set of scales rochelle. dr's and chemist ones are generally more accurate because they have to be configurated every week.

i agree with the others rochelle. stick to the one set of scales & it's often a good idea to only weigh once a week because your weight is likely to fluctuate during the week as well. :)

I haved that problem too. When I lived in port macquarie there was a 5kg lighter on the scales at the doctors, to what the scales at home say. Just stick to one set of scales. Other wise you will be up & down with emotion's.

I use those electronic ones that are in the bathrooms in shopping centres, I stick to the one scale and go there once a fortnight to weigh myself.

Are those tanita scales any good?
I cracked the 90kg mark for the first time in two years, I'm happy!!

there was a thread last month? about different scales. Tanitas were commented on then. I use a Tanita and it seems pretty accurate as long as I am in bare feet.
