Default Which weight???

Which weight do you use? I weigh at home and then I get weighed at the dr. The dr's office scale always shows about 3 pounds more than the scale at home. So, I am never sure which one to post here.

i say use the one at home because u r using that one more often. It isnt so much as how much you weigh as much as how much you have lsot. As long as u start on one weight and keep using that one to go by you will be fine

The one that weighs the least, of course.

Often my doctor's scale weighs me at 5+ pounds more than the WW scale. I say just pick one and be consistent.

I say for your sanity, use your home scale as your official weight. I'd go crazy "converting" every time I weighed in, but maybe that's just me.

Funny, I was thinking to go with the higher weight!! I wonder what that says about me? Your way sounds a lot healthier, Sheila!

I agree that the key is to remain consistent. I upped my weight by 7 pounds back in the beginning because I had a rude awakening.....and then I just stuck with that higher weight going forward, recalibrating my (old) home scale to match that of the doctor's. I did that because I wanted to really have an accurate awareness of how much I really weighed, since I was working so hard to lose weight! Now that I have a better quality scale, I don't have that discrepancy....and I just make a point of weighing myself at home right before going getting weighed at that office because after that experience I feel mildly paranoid and obsessive!

Anyway, I just took forever to say that I pretty much agree with the others.

Ok, the weight I have posted is the one from my home scale. I guess somehow I felt like I was cheating or something by using the lesser weight. I think partly because the weight I have to use for the goal ~ below 190 to be able to get that long term care insurance ~ the home weight doesn't count ~ it has to be the weight at the dr's office. I like the home weight better ~ with that one, I will get to onederland sooner. So, I will leave it as it is.
