I am roughly 5’5” to 5’6” and, according to an old scale, weigh 298 pounds. Question: Do scales become less accurate as they get older?

My mom’s 10-year-old scale said the above-mentioned weight when I first got here a week ago but then said 292 today. The old WW scale at home says about 298 as well — and it’s at least 6-7 years of age.

Maybe I am not standing on them correctly and/or fully? It can be difficult — on the WW scale, anyway — for me to put my legs together.
Also remember your weight can vary a few lbs. depending on the time of day you weigh yourself.If memory serves there is more of a gravitational pull at night so you may weigh more then than you do in the morning.

I'm normally a fairly fit guy, but due to an injury I have gained some weight over the last year and I am currently 6'0" and 235 pounds. Normally, my weight is about 180-185 pounds. A bit higher if I put on more muscle. My injury seems to be getting better, so I hope to become more active this summer and get back to more of the activities I enjoy doing. :)

Not sure what it was last time I posted here, it's been a while. But 211, right now.

Being over 210 is kinda a big deal in my head and not something I'm especially happy about. But things are what they are. I just wish my fat distributed like some of the other gorgeous ladies here instead of my little potato body, ahahaha.

The other thing about certain scales is that they get off balance just about every time you step on/off of them. My scale is usually off by about a pound or two each time I get off. I have to zero it again before I get back on.

You say "potato body" like potatoes aren't one of the more beloved foods.

I mean... fuckin' fries, chips, mashed potatoes, scalloped, POUTINE. Potatoes rule. If you think of yourself as a potato, remember how awesome they are.

I can personally vouch for the awesomeness of POUTINE. :D

I had poutine when I visited Montreal a few years ago. Omg...so amazing! I miss it big time.
Yep! It really is! :D The good old fries, cheese curds and gravy is the traditional way to have it and it's always great, but there are so many other things you can do with it to make it your own. If you're ever in Toronto or the province of Ontario in general, try going to a place called Smoke's Poutinerie. They have a wide selection of poutine and it's pretty good for a chain restaurant. Here, have a look at the selection and don't forget to look at their "locations" page if you ever visit Canada again. :)
