I have a little scale I bought from Walmart. I register 175lbs on it.
At the Dr's, I'm always 10lbs heavier though @ 185lbs. She said it's normal to be 10lbs heavier on dr scales.

My question is, which one should I use for an accurate figure? I'm assuming the dr's scale? I'm getting my license renewed and I want to put the most accurate info since I'm a law abiding citizen :evillaugh

I'm assuming you dont step on your home scale with clothes/shoes, and in the morning. I'm also assuming that you step on the Dr's scale with those things on, and after eating something.

I say take the one at home. The clothes you wear to the doctor's office/the food you eat before each appointment will change over time. Also, how often would you be going to the doctor anyway? At least the one at home, you can track changes on a weekly/biweekly/whatever basis

Your naked, morning weight is the most accurate.

Yeah, so unless you plan on stepping on the scale naked at the doc's with no food in your stomach all day, use the one at home.

both scales could be a little bit out.

just use one scales to weigh yourself so you can monitor your progress better.
