    The thing with it is are you telling it to subtract anything for your clothes. To get it dead acurate, you'd have to be nekid, and nekid everytime.

    I used to get upset when it weighed wrongly so now I just do the Training option with the occasional body check when I know I have lost a few pounds so it'll show a loss from what they say I was! I go by my other scales which I do step on naked after first piddle on a Monday morning - LOL

    Our wii is fairly accurate but we have stone floors so it's not a surprise. Just ignore the weight it gives you and as you are doing just update every so often so it shows a loss. Stick with the Monday weight check!

    The wii fit will never weigh the same as the scales, especially when you tell it to minus 2 or 3 lbs for your clothes.
    I just wear the same / similar clothes each time I use it, always choose -2lbs, and let it compare against previous weigh-ins on the wii fit, I don't compare it with the SW scales. Also, try to use it at the same time of day each time as your weight can fluctuate a lot over the course of a day.

    Lets face it, the wii board is not a real scale and for the most part I bet people use it on carpet!

    Just use one set of scales once a week and use that as your weight!
    I get on, off and then back on my wii fit and I can gain 4lb - hows that work? Cos it's not a real scale.

    Just use it for the exercise - it's the best way. PS I banned my daughter and her friends weighing themselves on this, not good :-(

    yeah it says it can be +/- 4lbs from your acutal weight!!! so ive also stopped weighing myself on it and sticking with my weekly WI.
    I love the freestyle step aerobics thing on it, and the boxing is brillant too!!!
