    When I went to see my CDC a couple of weeks ago to find out about the diet, form fill, and set my start date, he said to me he doesn't use state of the art scales, just basic dial bathroom scales, but that if I wanted to weigh at home before I go and see him each week, on my own scales, the he was ok with that, as long as I weighed on the same scales each week. To be honest, Id prefer that, as my scales are pretty fancy ones, and are very accurate. But just wondered if it was common for CDC to do this?

    I think it is up to you to take the lead about how you want your diet journey to go.

    I think it's up to you, as long as they're not hugely different (because they might use theirs to decide which stage you should be at..).

    my weigh in is always 5pm with my CDC and she knows I weigh in at home in the morning and says that's the best time to do it.. so I use my weigh in result when I tell people how I'm getting on..

    I weigh myself first thing, after a wee and before a drink and always with next to nothing on; this keeps the results more consistent for me. However, I did take my scales to use side by side my counsellor's so that I could compare any differences between the calibration of the two sets; then back home and back to my regular early morning event. It allows me to recognise what I must weigh on Jem's scales if I were to do the same thing at her place and at the same time of day. Hope this is helpful to you.
