Carpet mites between your toes
Your feet are positioned differently on the two weighings, this can change the value displayed on the dial a little.
most scales state to use scale on smooth hard surface to get accurate read. carpet allows scale to not be level and get inaccurate reading.. you should always use hard level surface for accuracy!
It does the same at my house but doesn't a scale use a balancing technique to weigh us? If so standing on the scale upon a carpet the scale will be less steady and unbalanced sinking perhaps deeper into one side then the other depending on where our weight is distributed, perhaps more to one side or the other perhaps putting more weight to the back or front etc..
easy, because the carpet is soft then you kind of sink down a little, anyway on a carpet there is less force pushing back on you so you weigh more than on a hard surfacei cant explain it any other way
