So here I was all happy that the scale at home, was reading my weight at 250 (a 15 pound loss)
I go to work that morning and decide to weigh myself at the gym at work, and find out that I actually weigh 257.3 to be exact. That sucks!
So looks like I have a longer road ahead of me than what I thought....
Don't despair! You can weigh different amounts at different times of day, even on the same scale... So just use whatever scale you started with, and always weigh at the same time of day, wearing whatever you have on at that time. It's the amount of loss you're looking for, not the absolute numbers.

Those will all make a differance. I agree with Jay weigh on the same scale under the same conditions and use that for your record. Your weight loss is the same no matter what the scale says.
Stick to one scale and save yourself the grief. :P Besides, like everyone else has said, your weight can fluctuate from hour to hour.
get out of the 230s by July 23rd: Met 7/23/2009
52 lbs. in 52 weeks (12/31/2009): Met 10/29/2009
180 (driver's license weight):
170.8 (100 lbs. lost):
160 (10 lbs to go!):
150 (final goal):
Ignore it. Your scale is the only one that counts. I weigh myself on MINE ONLY and on noone elses. Though my scale and the hospitals scale is exactly the same I found last week!
On my own personal journey I started on September 27, 2008

Still plugging along on this weight loss highway!
