    Hey girls
    Does anywon know if the Wii Fit can be used to weigh yourself ?
    If so how much weight can it take ?
    I have to weigh myself at work on industrial pallet scales at work when nobody is looking and it would make life so much easier to do it at home.
    Thanks

    Rainbow is right jus, you have to be lighter than 23 stone to use the wii fit board, pity because they are great for a workout at home, the scale side of it is a bit hit and miss though, I would'nt rely on mine being accurate!

    Yeah I wouldn't trust the accuracy either - mine said Id lost 6 pound in a day once (at that weeks WI I'd actually only lost a pound!) Fun all the same though, and good exercise xx

    Thats a shame as it wont be no good for me, thanks anyway.
    I do not attend a group as i never seem to have the time as i work in security on a shift rota. I am a member on the Body Optimise site. They dont have the scales to take my weight at the groups anyway, even the ones in Boots or in Supermarkets dont, i will be glad when i can weigh myself on the scales, thats my first goal.
    Thanks again.

    The scales in the class should be able to take any weight - that's what they're designed for. There was a man who weighed a phenomenal amount on a tv programme who went to slimming world to get weighed and the scales were fine to take his weight.

    i know someone who is about 35 stone and he used to attend slimming world classes and get weighed. my consultant said you could put the scales on a table and sit on them and they'd still give your correct weight...i haven't tried it yet though!
