Wii fit isn't that accurate.

Best idea is to stick to one set of scales.

For me there's a difference of 5-6lb between 4 diff scales, so I'm just going by the chemist and gym one's

Yep like the others say stick to one set, same time of day, same sort of clothing same time of the week.

My chemists scales weighed me around 6lbs lighter than my home scales, the wii fit 3lbs lighter than the chemists.

I always weigh myself on the wii fit, once a week, wearing only me pants and after getting up and going for a wee :giggle:

Hi i weighed myself today on my wii fit and then remembered i had to change my height from 5'4 to 5'5 (i'm taller than i thought lol), in the space of a minute i had put on a couple of lb but my bmi went down. I was going to go by my wii fit but think i'll buy some digital scales now.
