Okay so I just reached my 7lbs mark however after I weighed in the scales flashed the "low battery" warning for the first time I am worried I have celebrated to soon as I am worried that a low battery might affect scales accuracy and therefore I have blown my hopes :(

Anyone have any advice? I'll weigh myself on the Wii Fit but that never seems to match anymore either?!

Uhh, get a new battery? I usually get one warning on my scale, the next time I try to use it the screen blanks out. Good Luck!

I would hold off logging your weight just to be sure. Put the new battery in and weigh again tomorrow. If it's the same you are good and will know for next time this happens. Or you could try to weigh yourself again today and see if its the same, or find out what ever your scale acts like when it runs out of juice. Different brands of scales will do different things when they get low.
