Why do we weigh more at different times of the day. For example I can get up in the morning and be heavier than I am half way through the day! How crazy is that!!!

When is the best time to weigh yourself and how often?

I've noticed the best time to weigh myself is first thing in the morning after i go potty and before i get in the shower so buck nakey! and only once a week so i don't get mad.

In the morning, after bathroom and undressed (or just a t-shirt on) and once a week.

Never never never never never never weigh yourself more than once a day.

That's my rule, anyway.

I think as long as you weigh yourself at the same time everyday (or every week, month, whatever) you'll start to see some consistency. You will weigh about a kilo more (2.2 pounds) in the evening versus in the morning; you'll also weigh more after a workout as your muscles retain water.

You'll find a lot of discussion on these boards about how often you should weigh yourself; everyone seems to be different! Personally, I only weigh once a week. Others enjoy weighing everyday to get to know their body's fluctuations. And it seems the medical community goes back and forth on which is the best for weight loss: everyday or every week? Just find what you're comfortable with and don't worry about day-to-day fluctuations, if that's the route you choose to go: they're normal!
