    The only thing I can say is that the old school scales where it balances is thought to be the most accurate out of any method.

    Not sure which one is going to be more acurate. Just pick one and stick with it so you will have an acurate knowledge of how much you have actually lost.

    I believe this is correct, but only if the scale is calibrated correctly.

    Out of the home scales though, I've seen reviews that say the digital ones are more accurate.

    Here's the one that I just recently bought and it comes highly recommended:

    I have tried doing the dumbbell thing when I bought a new digital scale. And it was really close..actually a little on the heavy side by .2lbs. But my only concern was if it was .2lbs off at 10lbs would it be even more inaccurate the more weight that got put on it. But then I realized worrying about something as petty as that was stupid...then proceeded to head to the gym and relocate some iron. I figure my body fluctuates in weight so much throughout the day all you are doing is getting a estimated weight every time you step on the scale anyways so I try to get on it the same time once a week ( in the morning of course..after the morning piss) and use it merely to see how much was lost..

It never freaks out on me, never runs. Friends may come and go. But two hundred pounds is always two hundred pounds." -Henry Rollins
