    Is it just me or do my scales vary so much from my CDC's scales.??????:confused:
    If i ever weighed myself at home, it was always first thing in the morning before eating or drinking anything. So that is the way i have decided on the goal weight.
    I go for my Day 16 weigh-in tonight.>>>so approximately 3 litres of water and CD drinks will have been consumed during the day, so i could be potentially 3 kilos ( 6lbs 6 oz )heavier than a morning weigh-in. And with clothes on.:sigh: Obviously i prefer the morning numbers on the scales.:rolleyes:
    Before i leave tonight, i shall weigh myself at home and compare with the CDC weight 15 minutes later. Then i will have a clearer idea of my true loss, especially as my next CDC weigh-ins will not be at weekly intervals, owing to a very irregular work schedule over the next couple of weeks.:wave_cry:

    That's a good idea. My CDC visits me and I weigh on my scales just before she arrives to see if there is much difference between the scales. Sometimes I even weigh less on her's. The morning weight is always the lowest so I like that one best.
    Good luck over the next few weeks

    my cdc scales showed my start weight as 2lb heavier than my scales, but if you take into account that like most i weigh on mine first thing, the difference could have just been due to water intake.
    It used to annoy me when i went to the gps to get weihed as you could gaurantee that i would be sent to a different room each time and my wieght would flucate alarmingly.

    Yes I have same problem. I weighed 12.7 on cdc scales and 13 on mine when I started diet, but I am totally getting confused as I weigh myself in morning with no clothes on and after a wee!!!:eek:
    I have to go to my cdc at about 6pm, so it is really difficult to know which ones to go by!!!
