when you guys talk about a "weigh in" do you mean every day? Or when you go to your coach and weigh in?

Default re what time of day to weigh in

I agree with you. After we've had water and food, the scale is going to show the actual weight of THAT. I think it does matter, at least in my head, to see the actual weight at it's lowest, with my eyeballs, on the scale. So I weigh myself first thing in the morning with no clothes on, before I take even a drink of water. I LOVE seeing the numbers lower and lower.

You will probably see this a lot on the forum - but you should NOT weigh in every day on Ideal Protein. Weight fluctuates by a few pounds over the course of a single day as well as over the course of a week. Daily weights will not give you an accurate picture of where your weight is trending. Whether you weigh in with a coach, or at home - you should check your weight once per week, at approximately the same time of day every week. The scale is a trend tracker, not judge and jury

The concern with weighing more than once a week is that you could have daily fluctuations that could be misinterpreted as a true weight gain, and thus get discouraged and lose motivation to stay OP.

That said, I too am a daily weigher and can't break the habit (and don't really want to). What I do to ease any frustration with normal fluctuations is to only *record* my weight once a week. So, for instance, that pound I put on today really doesn't count since my WI was yesterday.

When I talk about "weigh-ins" I am talking about when we weigh with our coach, I believe everyone else is too. I am with most of you as well! I know it's not "proper" to be doing it, but I love weighing my self every morning, if not, every evening as well... it just keeps me going. I don't find discouragment in it, I see it as knowing what I put in my body and different times of the day does to my number on the scale. This morning I am actually down 14 lbs!!!

Congratulations on your first week, that is an awesome loss! I try not to weigh myself during the week.. Mostly because it seems like my scale at home is always different then the one my coach has! Also I always book my weigh ins right in the morning and don't eat or drink before so its pretty accurate.

I have to admit that, while I do love to weigh myself every morning, it DOES mess with my head when I "feel" lighter and healthier....and then the morning scale says I've gained. I do my best to "shake it off" and keep on keeping on.

Oh! By the way--AWESOME first week weigh in to the original poster!
