Yes, the latter. On a multiplier of 15 cal/lb, a difference in accuracy of a couple of pounds is noise and far larger than other issues in determining actual caloric intake.

the best scale is a good old pair of jeans. When they are getting tight, it dont matter what the scale says, youre getting fat. And Ive actually had a situation where my scale says I weighed 130lbs, and my jeans were tighter. And the opposite happens too.

what happens if your muscles grow or the jeans shrink when you wash them?

didnt think about that, but if your muscles grow, the waist should/may get smaller as you get leaner.

I too have had a Tanita for around 12 years now. Not sure how accurate it really is, but I've relied on it. I'm not sure how to calibrate these things. Mine is also digital and has save settings for several people based upon height, sex, and sporty or average body. My father used to tell me it really didn't matter so long as you return to the same scales.

No, it's the washing machine gremlin saying you are too fat.
