I weigh every Monday morning as soon as I get up. I don't understand why anyone would get weighed after they have eaten

Personally I think as long as you Weigh on the same day each week, at the same time and same situation it is ok. So if you weigh one week midday in heavy clothes, then the next week in the morning naked it ain't going to reflect a true loss

C'mon -- This is more ridiculous than saying muscle weighs more than than fat. I'm out of this conversation. C'ya.

I have weighed 3 times this week, just to prove to myself that there is no point doing this (for me anyway)...

Monday 11 stone 1.75
Tuesday 11 stone 3.5
Today 11 stone 2.75

So, up to now I have stayed on track with calories and exercise but have put a pound on.

I am only recording Monday as I always weigh on a Monday, but thought I would check how much I fluctuate every day. Don't understand why people want to weigh daily when its just up and down all the time ?

I weigh twice daily because I have cardiac artery disease. My insurance put me on a program to keep a check on my heart.

We weigh often so that we know what decisions to make about exercise, and food. Shazzyb, If you're really tracking what you eat/drink and how much you exercise then you'll know why your weight goes up and down. It's not a mystery. Calories in, Calories out. If you drink liquid before you weigh you'll be heavier. Water weighs 8 lbs a gallon. Your body will retain water weight due to diet, female cycles and high body fat percentage.

I've lost 50 lbs in the last year and kept it off. To keep it off it's a combination of making good habits, dropping bad habits and knowing what I weigh. At 51 years old I feel better than I have in years. I regulate what I eat, how much I exercise and how much sleep I get. With those variables it's actually easy to maintain my weight. Smile

I weigh daily, but it is to catch problems before they happen. I know that it will fluctuate. In fact, here is a great example....

On Saturday I weighed in at 175. I ate some salty food (chinese) for dinner, Sunday I weighed in at 176. I knew why, I retain water very quickly. On Sunday I also did 20 mile road ride, so my muscles were sore. On Monday, I weighed in at 178.4. But by yesterday the water weight was gone, the muscle swelling is gone and bam, I am at 174 now.

The whole time, I was watching what I eat, keeping to my portions sizes and calorie intake, but it was the type of food and exercise that I did, that caused a false weight gain. I record my weight once to twice a week, usually on Wednesdays or Thursdays and on a weekend day.

Exactly. Elevenbeauty, your body has a natural rhythm to it and if you tracked/recorded daily as I do you'll see it - it's right in front of you. Even when you're losing weight or gaining weight. Sleep plays an important part in this as well. If you don't sleep well or eat/drink too late in the day this will also impact your weight cycle.

How often you weigh yourself is definitely a personal preference. There was a time that I could only handle weighing myself once a week. Now it helps me to stay focus, so if I gain a little one day I can cut back on calories the next. Wink

too much!!! Every morning, after exercize...I need to STOP!!!
I think the best advice (and I need to comply) is to weigh one dedicated day per week.

INSANITY!!!
Let's say you were uncoordinated, would Insanity be hard to follow? I have the hardest times learning new routines, I end up sitting down and watching but still not getting it.
