    I treated my self to a 20 pound pair of Tanita digital scales from Argos yesterday and that has me weighing 10 - 7 yet my CDC's scales have me down as 10.3. There was only 15 mins time difference.

    WHich do I go by especially seeing as I am now on maintenance and goal is 10!

    Tanita scales are really good though. Even those bought in Argos:D

    Might your CDC's scales be wrong?

    Regardless. Goal is where you feel happiest. It's not a number on scales. I know that's so vague...but true nevertheless.

    So my advice would be to stick with the CDC's scales so you can have a number to guide, finish your losing weight plan according to the 'steps', and stop when you feel it's right.:)

    Okay, just dug out the instructions and box. I dont have the clear plastic I think it was wrapped in but cant remember. Have everything else though.

    Scales

    Those scales are one of the best on the market. Don't bother to take them back.

    You will find that lots of scales show your weight differently.

    What matters is the amount lost not your actual weight. Go by the CD scales for your actual weight as thats your official weigh in.

    My scales are 2 lbs lower than my councellors so I just weigh myself when I get in from her house to check that's still the case then go by mine during the week.

    Your councellor will advise you if you need to move up to 1200 or 1500. I think the general thinking is, try it and see which plan keeps you stable.

    My scales are different to my doctors but when I go for my wi every month both scales show exactly the same loss.

    So long as your scales are showing the same loss as your CDC Id say thats the important thing :)
