Hey Lizzie, I do the same thing...although I make sure I've peed a couple of times first

(I have a great nurse at my doc's office that says I can even take off mascara before getting on the scale there if I think it will help...every little bit does, ha ha.)

Anyway, I have a Tanita body fat scale. I can't vouch for the accuracy but it is helpful in terms of comparing me to myself in previous weeks / days. For example, if it says my body fat is 27%, it may or may not be 27%, but it's probably safe to say that it's less than it was the previous week when it said 29%. I would assume "reasonable" accuracy or there would be violations of truth in advertising and all that, but who knows?

About a year ago, I was working out with a personal trainer who used a hand-held device to measure body fat. Even she said that even if they are not 100% accurate, they are usually consistent.
