How accurate are the scales?

just wondering how accurate the scales at slimming world are? Just wondering if you go on the scales 10 minutes later whether they will be the same or different, as sometimes the scales do flicker between say ....stone 2 lb and ... stone and 2.5 lbs?

Also would they be the same as if you got weighed in Boots?

Just thought I'd ask?

If I weigh myself at my mums (she has the scales, I refuse to have them in my house as I was once addicted to weighing myself 3 times a day!) the scales at my mums will say im 3-4lb heavier than SW ones. I just stick to SW once a week, middle of a tuesday, done job :) xx

The scales are calibrated and they keep them that way. We had an issue one week because the scales had been plugged in wrong and stopped weighing anyone after the first 2 people. After we fixed it the first people weighed 4 lbs heavier. So the next week my group leader brought both of her sets of scales (digital), her old non-digital SW scales and another consultants scales out and weighed herself and a couple of other members on all the sets to show that they were all the same and therefore all accurate. I run the weigh station on the social team at my group so I get to hear all the drama about the weigh-ins every week.:D
