I am starting to realize no matter what I do ( I was perfect yesterday). I weigh more on Saturday. my lowest weight is usually on Thursday. I am going to track a few more days to get a better sense of the pattern but will likely stop the daily weighing.
It's easy to lose track. There's a benefit to daily weighing, even if it's frustrating. It's easier chasing two pounds then five or ten.

I actually don't think daily weighing is helpful for me. I don't think weighing daily is the only way of staying on top of weight. I was doing it because I am impatient. Im not chasing 2 lbs of fat gain from a bad diet its just weight fluctuations from water. Which can actually cause some people to dehydrate themselves (via sweating it out or water restriction) which isn't healthy.

I think weekly weighing could work the same way and keep things on track.

Do what makes you happy. Whatever works for you.

It's a slippery slope.

I've read those and others about daily weight before but:

Authority nutrition article:

-- If you find that daily self-weighing causes you to have bad feelings about yourself or your eating behaviors, you should find other methods to measure your progress.

-- Although self-weighing may be a valuable tool, it has some limitations.

-- If you’re exercising and gaining muscle, the scale may not show your progress and instead simply show that you have gained weight.

While losing weight can indicate progress, a scale does not differentiate between healthy weight (muscle) and unhealthy weight (fat).


I don't think daily weighing is the only weigh to stay on track. I have successfully lost weight and kept it off before with weekly weighing. I only gain weight when I stop weighing all together.

Everybody is different.

It will help you lose weight and maintain it instead of having to lose weight again. Once again, good luck, I have no horses in this race. Hope you reach your goals.

Im at 125...was once as low as 113 and had plenty of flab to lose even then. Im only 5'1, so even a little extra weight matters. Currently low carb, under 30g and 1000 calories a day. Had a rough weigh in after 3 weeks where I only lost 1 lb. Hoping it was my ovulation bloat, since I was dilligent about calories and didnt even eat back exercise cals. Was hoping to have lost about 4lbs. Feel fine with this plan, since Im so petite, I think the calorie goal is acceptale. Hard to admit that I start gaining at 1500 cals a day, but thats my body. Love to be 107 by August!
