I've been using the scale at the gym to track my progress, and it's been frustrating me lately because I work out for 45-60 minutes, five times a week, and I've been dieting (I've cut out beer and sticking to 1200-1300 calories a day) so I feel like I should be seeing some progress, even just a little. But after almost three weeks, the scale at the gym says I've GAINED 3 pounds.

I have a bathroom scale at home that I haven't used in a while. I weighed myself on it on Sunday and it said I was 9 pounds less than what the gym scale said. I thought maybe it was just broken (it's kinda old) but then yesterday I was at Target, and I tried out one of the digital scales right off the shelf and it agreed with my bathroom scale.

Which scale should I trust? The one that gives me good news or the one that gives me bad news? Should I just buy a new scale and go with whatever that one says?

How often do you weigh yourself?
