Turn the scale upside down (assuming it's a bathroom scale) and look for a small knurled or serrated wheel. When you know where it is, usually on the lower portion of the scale, turn the scale back upright to its normal position and turn the small wheel. One direction will cause the weight shown to increase, the other direction to decrease. Adjust the wheel until you have the proper reading.

A quick and dirty check:

In the middle of the belt run (half way between the two pulleys), it should deflect about 1/2" with 10 lbs of pressure.

How to measure the 10 lbs?
You could use one of these:

Or, if you're too cheap for that, use a fish scale from a sporting goods store that sells fishing equipment.
To test it's accuracy weigh a new 10 lb bag of sugar, and mark the scale where it registers.

You say, that: "I have two Weight Watcher scales, model WW11D."

Can I have three guesses where you purchased them???
Do they come with any sort of warranty?

Their weight is inaccurate as compared to the official scales when you weigh yourself at the Weight Watchers meeting.

Are the people running the Weight Watchers meetings absolutely and totally unable to provide an answer regarding these scales?

there should be a dial on the sides to zero it out. if it doesnt, then it has something to do on the actual scale. does it have a menu or settings option? you should be able to zero it out.

### Weight watcher scale not calibrating weight correctly

Press the scale once with your foot. All screen options should display to initialize and then go to 0.0. Now step on the scale. It should read out your correct weight. If not, first remove and replace the battery for reset. If still not, replace the battery. If still not it's ready for return or replacement. Hope it works! Dave - CA
