Does anyone else have this problem with weighing themselves in their house?

Different parts of the floor makes the scale reading different. I know my floors are pretty old, but this is just ridiculous. I don't know what number is right. lol.

I have similar issues at my home. What I try to do is move the scale to the exact tile on the bathroom floor each day so that I'm weighing in the same place. Whether or not the "number" is perfectly accurate isn't as important as having the consistency so I know that I'm losing (or gaining).

I pick one tile on my bathroom, and when I weigh I use only that section. I step up on it once. I take the reading. I get off. No matter what it is, I just take it.

My scale is temperamental. too. I do as Lovely does. I leave it in the same place all the time and get on once and get off. If you stay consistent your readings will be consistent, too.

LOL - I got three readings this morning. My DH checked the batteries in the scale. They needed to be replaced!!!

This has happened before. But life goes on, and the scale is just one insignificant part of measuring our success, or failure, in this weight-loss business.

Like everyone else, I pick one exact tile that I use everyday. I also really try to make sure I'm standing up straight and not putting all my weight forward or to the side or something.

I got anywhere from 209-213. I was 215 earlier this week, so I'm not sure what's going on.

I actually leave my scale out for this very reason. Its in the bathroom that company uses, too, lol... Our house isnt old, I wish it was, lol, but it's apparently very haphazardly made, and nothing is level...
