Have you tried changing the batteries in yours? Also make sure you weigh yourself on a solid surface rather than carpet.

that's so wierd. I have digital scales at home, and they show a higher weight than my wii fit scales do. ditto the gym scales. I wouldn't worry too much about what the scales say (hah. i should take my own advice!), as long as you're losing, s'all good.
ima change the battery, see if it makes any diff - thanks for the tip lemony - i have hardwood flooring so it's def not a case of uneven surface.
1. "Morbidly Obese">"Severe Obese" (129.3 kg)
2. "Severe Obese" > "Overweight" (96kg)
3. "Overweight" > "Normal" (82.5kg)
doctors scales don't have to be accurate, my doctors scales made me 2kg heavier than both the ones at the gym and at my house!!!
As said before the weight isn't actually important it is the loss that you want to worry about!

I bought some ww scales and they were dreadful. Everytime i got on them they weighed different ( and i mean with 1 minute) I now have some salter digital and they are very good.
I would weight with ONE set of scales - as it will show you the accurate DIFFERENCE in weight - regardless whether the actual weight is right or not ... if you see what I mean?
My doctors scales also weigh me less. I think I may go again as a quick pick me up haha.
i had a similar thing happen to me when i went to the doc's last month to be weighed, she was amazed that in a month i had lost a whooping 1 stone but according to my scales which i wi with every week i hadn't lost as i had a bad month but the doc said to me her scales were spot on as they had just been calibrated ( not sure what this means) but i know i hadn't lost that at all so i stick to my home wi's for my weight loss results, it is annoying though because i would have so loved to have come away from the doc's having actually been 1 stone lighter in a month.

i know this is a little old now but my doctor's scales are about 7lb out i know this because mine and cdc say the same her's always have been less which is kinda nice in one way i have told her but she won't hear it and says most people say they must be wrong as they are lighter not the other way round lol
Start Weight 186lbs lost 54 lbs On VLCD & CC in 2009

Weight loss currently on hold due to the most fantastic news that I am expecting my 1st baby , absolutely over the moon , however would like to be as healthy and fit as possible during the pregnancy and try not to gain too much weight as currently 14lbs already over weight
Estimated due date 8th January 2013
I work at a GP's and every single set of scales in the practice are 7 pounds either way, it does not seem to matter how often they are callibrated as soon as they have been used and moved around they give false weights. what matters is there is a general downward trend and try to stick to only one set of scales
