I'm also a daily scale reader, and I am starting to think the morning agony of seeing the fluctuations isn't worth it. It is FANTASTIC when you get that one shining ecstatic moment, that ONE morning out of 90, that the scale is down 3or 4 pounds from the day before but seeing the daily ups and downs are just mostly sooooo frustrating. 99% of the mornings, I am ready to smash that scale thru the bathroom window.

I am trying to break my scale habit a little bit. Two mornings this week, I didn't weigh in, and big shock--the world didn't end!!!

So, (finally) my point is...don't be so sad. If all you ate was a burrito, you really didn't gain 3 lbs., pure & simple.
