If you weigh yourself on one foot is it accurate?

I broke my ankle a few weeks back and want to make sure I am not gaining the weight back that I worked so hard to lose. I am not eating much but with not being able to do much I still worry. So, I try and weigh myself on one foot but I am not sure if its accurate or not...

  • as long as the scale is taking your full weight and you're not leaning on something else, like a crutch or a towel rack, it will be accurate.
