So, I just got done searching Google for a scientific answer. And I really didn't find one.

The best I came up with is that weighing yourself at the same time - whether is be every day or every week - is important so that your measurements are relative to each other. Which seems to make sense.

That being said, I read that it's also important to weigh under the same circumstances each time, such as in the same shirt and shorts, etc.

Another thing that made sense was that in the morning, after using the bathroom, on an empty stomach, is the most consistent time you can weigh in.

Which it sounds like most of us are doing this anyway..

Personally, I can only weigh in once or twice a week. Seeing the scale fluctuate too much gets me down!
