    just wondering if any body uses their wii fits to weigh yourselves? There's a difference in my scales to my wii ft and I'm thinking the wii fit would be more accurate with it being all computerized? What do you think?

    ooh i don't know Emmie, i only just got some scales for the first time in years but we think santa may be bringing a wii fit, so i'd be interested in this answer too! Is you wii fit on carpet? that does make a difference i think?

    When i first started trying to lose weight I didn't have bathroom scales so i used my wii fit scales.
    Sometimes they seemed accurate but they other times they would add on/lose a few pounds within minutes of weighing (just in case you think i was just in denial about how much i had lost :p), so I got myself a pair of digital bathroom scales and for me they are better.
    I was using my wii fit on wooden floor aswell which i thought would give really accurate results but it wasn't always the case.

    I would guess your Wii Fit, would be more accurate. Most scales give different readings, I went of 2 different ones in Boots in the space on half an hour - I haven't been to the toilet or had anything to drink & I was 4lbs heavier on the second ones, wearing the same clothes.

    Just stick to your Wii Fit and your WI.

    The Wii Fit is a games console, emphasis on games, so it is not always accurate.

    I have looked into it and there is a common belief that if it is on tiles/hardwood/laminate etc then it is very accurate HOWEVER if it is on carpet/rug etc then you need to add the extension caps that came with it then it will become again very accurate!! hope this helps anyone!!!

    I weigh myself every morning with the wii scales and they are 1lb lighter than my CDC scales. So I dont know who;s are right as long as that graph chart keeps going down it keeps me happy.

    Stick to your cdc's scales.
    I went to boots a while ago, and was 4lbs lighter then my cdc scales.
    I was very upset about it, but decided that I will now only ever get weighed once a week at her house. Less confusion, and less upset.
