Default Your scale or WW?

Which do go by? I know when you go to meetings you use WW's scale and sorta have to go by that one for your official weigh-ins. I've found that my scale weigh's me in at about 2 pounds less than WW, granted I am usually wearing a bit less and weigh in first thing in the morning on my scale. I'm just curious, if your scale gives you different results, which one do you go by?

That's funny because my scale weighs in 2lbs less that the ww scale as well. Sometimes I even weigh in right before I go with my clothes ON and it's still less than the scale at the weigh in.

I use both, actually. I wear the same thing to my Saturday weigh in and just know that it'll add a little under a pound to my naked weight I have every other day. I also weigh in on my own scale before I go to my WW weigh in so I know where it falls with my other weights. As long as the trend is down in both places I'm a happy camper.

I have an Excel spread sheet that I use. On weigh-in day I record my morning (naked) weight, my weight in clothes right before my WW weigh-in and then I record my WW weigh-in. I do this so I can sort of know where I'm at before I go to weigh-in and because I'm silly like that. I really only go by the WW weigh-in.

My at home scale is always about 1 pound heavier than the ww scale. Every Thursday for weigh in I try to wear the same thing to keep it as accurate as i can. I only officially count the ww scale, but I do weigh myself every morning to know how I'm doing.

My doctor's office scale is actually less than my home scale.

I don't think it matters which one you use as long as you use the same one every week.

I always weigh in with similar clothing each week and always on an empty stomach.

I want to go by mine because I am ALMOST to the 150's on it! I've had my scale for a couple years and it registers very close to what my gym's scale says. I've only been recording my official WW's WI's on this site and such but in my head I'm going by my scale.

I do all of this too. Not to mention I have actually weighed the clothes I do my WI in so that I can figure out what weighs the least.

My scale weighs two pounds over the WW scale so clearly, I go with theirs and assume mine is broken (and hateful).

I go by my home scale as it is 2 lb lighter than the one at WW. I figure at home when I first wake up, no clothes and no food/drink is my most accurate weight.

I don't know why I didn't think of this before but some of you mentioned weighing yourself right before heading to WW so I tried that today (wearing the same clothes you do for your official WI). Turns out my scale is pretty darn close to WW's! There was a .2 difference between my scale and WW's (I did take two sips of coffee between so that could account for the difference). This would be a big relief if this were the case.
