So, I was visiting my parents' home on Saturday, and while in the bathroom I decided to hop onto the scale and do my daily weigh-in. The scale showed me at about 8 pounds heavier than my scale at home! When I got back to my apartment Sunday night and weighed myself, I was within 1 pound of my weight the last time I used my own scale.
This sort of weight gain/loss seems extreme, and I haven't felt my body changing, so I am figuring that one of the scales must be wrong (most likely mine--I got the cheapest one at Target after being overwhelmed by all the different options).
Now I am worried that my scale at home is broken/inaccurate, and this is bothering me. I've got two questions:
1) How can I tell my true weight? Is a doctor's office scale the only option?
2) For you guys who have used various scales, which ones do you recommend? I went with a dial scale because I figured it made more sense to start cheap and then get a better one when I was really dedicated to my new diet/lifestyle. I was also worried about digital ones because I read several online reviewers saying their digital scale went wonky after several months.
