Am back to daily weighing now, but when I was off track and letting myself regain, I went months at a time without weighing at all.
But here's what's weird. Before I stepped on the scale after months of not weighing, I was always able to guess within just 1-2 lbs exactly how much I was going to way even when I had put on huge amounts of weight.
Anybody else like that?

I do always know because I weigh myself in the morning. I've gotten accustomed to seeing how the scale fluctuates based on things like TOM, exercise, what I'm eating etc. For example, the scale always goes up at TOM by 2-3 lbs. It always goes up if I do a particularly strenuous day of exercise (such as an all day hike in the mountains) because my muscles pull in so much water while they are healing. It always goes down by 5 lbs or so if I cut carbs, because my body dumps water and glycogen. I can usually tell before I even step on the scale what it will say.

I'd have an idea. If my eating has been good, water intake high, exercise has been done, I would expect a lose or to be the same weight. If I had an off couple of days, I would expect a gain. I weigh in every two weeks so if I did have an off couple of days I would put the weigh in off for a few day.

I can usually guess by how my favorite jeans fit out of the dryer. I weigh myself often, though not on any regular schedule anymore.
Life style change started on Jan 13, 2011. I was going to lose 100 pounds by Christmas.
I lost 93 pounds by Oct 1, 2011 and am holding there for now. We'll see what happens.
