Well, I'm not sure if it's me or the two scales we have. I weighed in on the digital scale at our cabin at 214. We came home and I weighed on the digital scale at home and weighed 216 the next day. I had not even come close to the calorie goal this site sets for me at 2300/day. I've averaged 1400-1500 for weeks now. Today I was at 215.2 on the home scale, so I did lose. I'm just not sure how much.

I'd always thought digital scales would be pretty accurate, but now I'm not so sure. Anyway, that's my rant. Monday is the day I generally do my "official" weigh in. I'll be home, so it may look as though I've either gained or not lost much. I'm going to the cabin this weekend, so I my just take the scale from home and do a side by side to see if I'm gaining weight by osmosis or if I just need to adjust the reading depending on the scale.

Okay, that's my rant for today!

To get a relatively accurate / consistent reading use the SAME SCALE at roughly the SAME TIME each day on a hard and level surface. A difference of 1# up or down can be attributed to a bowel movement or a bottle of water so stay consistent. Calories counting is ok but focus on slow and steady and mix exercise (walking?) in to your routine each and every day. A quality digital scale (properly tuned in) and a quality DETECTO Balance Beam Scale (also correctly balanced) are equally good but again - use the same scale at the same time. It has served me well the last 2 years and 83#.

There's no point to weighing every day, that will just make you anxious. Once or twice a week is enough. And yeah, same scale, same surface, same time of day, same point in your routine, preferably naked, as "same" as you can get, otherwise who knows what it will say.
