My biggest "gain" was the day after surgery - up 4 lbs! Of course by the next morning I had "lost" 6 lbs. I didn't really think either number was accurate!
I weigh daily too. It gives me an idea of how trying different things has an impact on the scale. I too only count the one on my coach's scale. I never could figure out why I sometimes weighed less on their scale in clothes than I did in my skivvies on mine until I had the weight bump. Turns out they lower their scale by 2 pounds to account for clothing.
I saw a 15 at the start of my weight this morning. I havent seen that in over 10 years for sure.
