    and according to them (when in the bathroom) I've gained 8lbs since wednesday..(is that even possible?!) however in the living room, I've gained 3lbs....soooooooooo was a complete waste of money, and now I have no idea if I've lost/gained lol. Now I know why we ain't supposed to weigh ourselves!

    Unless youve been eating 24 hours a day - no its not possible but basically no 2 sets of scales weigh the same.. take them back and get a refund :whoopass:

    Always use your scales on a hard surface - carpet is no good.

    My scales showed I'd had a six pound loss in a couple of days - I thought they were wrong, but OH has checked them and so have I (again and again!) and it looks like they are working properly :eek:

    Hi for what its worth I don't get weighed until I go to the weekly meeting. Think I would be tempted to get weighed every day.

    The only way weighing yourself at home works is you know how your scales compare to SW ones, and at the moment you dont. Put them away at least til your next official wi :)
