how accurate is the balance board when weighing yourself because in 2 days ive dropped 2 pounds nw this morning ive gained 3 i could see if i was just shoveling my face full of food but im not and im actually more active since i got the wii fit i just got it 2 days ago so is it like 85% accurate or what?
I wonder about it's accuracy sometimes too. I find that frequently I will gain 1.1 or 1.3 pounds in 2 days, but then lose that exact same amount again at the next weigh-in. I know it's possible because your weight can fluctuate by 1 or 2 pounds on any given day, but it makes it hard to know if I really am losing any weight or not. Am I'm always wearing the same workout type clothes so I know the weight that I choose for my clothing can't be causing the daily differences.
Danm this is like very accurate. Unless you fig it around you'll most likely get a good estimate on your weight. But don't depend on it to be a scale. It's not very accurate, it got my weight -2 pounds.

1)Like it says, your weight flucuates during the day, so if you're doing the tests at odd times it will look weird.
2) Weight doesn't mean fat, if you've been doing the strength training and other exercise, you may have gained muscle mass. A scale doesn't differerentiate, and it's one of the reasons BMI is such an inaccurate measure.
Also keep track of how much water you drink. If you drink a lot of water in the day...you'll weigh a little bit more. Remember, 1 gallon of water is 8 pounds. So it's quite easy to gain and lose 2 pounds in one day.
I think I know, I don't think I know, I don't think I know that I know, I think I know even though I don't think I know...
