Wii Fit Scales?

S: 13st3lb C: 13st3lb G: 12st0lb BMI: 28.1 Loss: 0st0lb(0%)
Anyone else find the Wii Fit scales really wrong? I started using it again 2 weeks ago, from Saturday to Sunday it said that I had put on half a pound, but at my weigh in last week I had lost 2 pounds. And then yesterday it said that I had put on another pound, yet tonight I *lost* half a pound - I even got my half stone award :D

Anyone else have this problem with their Wii Fit? Or is mine just gubbed?! On the plus side I did 45 min of exercise yesterday and my calves are aching today!

I wouldn't rely on them either! They fluctuate wildly.

I found that my scales and my Wii fit scales never matched, but the difference between them was accurate to within half a pound (assuming both were always positioned in the same place and on the same surface each time you weighed).

That is to say that your Wii fir scales may be wrong by 2lb in terms of weight, but they should accurately reflect your gain/loss each week.

And if not good chance they are just knackered for some reason imo

i always found that if i took off the clothing allowance it said my weight was always out but if didnt take any weight off for my clothes then it was spot on x

As far as I am concerned, they are a toy (albeit a fun one) and should be treated as such.
You wouldn't cook your dinner on your playskool "My First Kitchen" now would you!

Mine was always right untill yesterday! I got in them n they said I'd lost 9lb! I thought wow that speed soup really works! N then I got back on to weigh my son! It said they have noticed a difference of 4lb! So it made him 2 stone!! I thought that Summat was wrong so I got back on to weigh myself again n I'd put 4lbs back on in the space of 5 mins!! Lol so never rely in them I say!! It's weigh in tonight so hopefully I will have lost at least 1.5lb to get my 2 stone!!

Are you using them on carpet or flooring? Carpet can make them less reliable, unless you have a VERY short pile.

when i was seventeen stone they told me i was sixteen. now im eleven and a half they telling me im twelve. theyve never been right. dont look now when i go on.
Mine have always been close but not something I rely on to tell me my real weight....they are pretty good at corresponding with gain and loss though but then I use it on a hard floor and in the same place every time ;)

mine are always spot on and agree perfectly with my bathroom scales.

You CANNOT use them on a carpet or on a rug. You have to use them on a very even piece of hard floor. Same place every time and stand stock still when they weigh you. once i leaned to the side as my daughter was handing me something and it told me i had gained 10lbs! Thankfully i weighed myself again (properly) before i reached for the vodka haha xxx

Mine are always wrong but I have learnt that I only take note of the weight after I have excercised on it - I do my body test then, not at the start.
