Do you weigh the same at home as you do on SW scales?

Just that really! I find I way 1-2lbs less at SW meetings even though I'm clothed. Hoping my scales are wrong. Both show same losses and gains.

No, my scales weigh me less at home then at meetings

I'm in an NHS group at the moment. We were weighed last week, about half a pound difference to my home scales. One woman said the NHS scales were 8kg heavier than her slimming world group scales, that's over a stone!

No, sometimes I'm lighter on my own scales, sometimes I'm heavier! I always weigh at home in the same clothes just before I get weighed at SW, so I can compare.

You have to remember that it's not the actual number that matters, but the change in that number over time. Doesn't matter if you weigh a few pounds heavier on one than the other, provided they both go down at about the same rate.

Unless they are calibrated side by side and you weigh at exactly the same time on each, it's unlikely that 2 sets of scales will ever match completely.

My home scales weigh me 2-3lbs lighter than the scales in group but I know mine are affected by being moved.

I'm half a lb heavier on my home scales, which I'm usually naked when I weigh myself. So SW are perhaps 2lb lighter? I try to keep to the same clothes when I get weighed.

I've just got some Fitbit scales, and they are a good 1lb heavier than the SW ones - I'm thinking of sending them back!!!

My home scales weigh me .75lb heavier than SW scales.

I never weigh at home. I know me, and I f i start doing it at home, I'll get a bit obsessed and start weighing daily and messing things up. Once a week is plenty smile

I'm about 1.5-2lb lighter at home (WW scales ironically!). I only count my weight on the SW weigh in scales as my current weight but my home scales calculate body fat % so I record that too on my Fitbit.
