So let’s get this out of the way right now: there is no way I have lost 3 pounds in 24 hours.
Not ‘real’ pounds, anyway.
I have this special arrangement with my scale, specifically to avoid this sort of thing: I weigh myself 3 times: Saturday, Sunday, and Monday mornings. On Monday, I record the average of the three. I find this (usually) smooths out some of the ups and downs.
Last weekend I got X.5-X.0-X.5. This weekend: X.0-X.5-X.0 (Yes, I’m being coy). This gave me a whopping 0.1 down for the week. Whatever. I’ll take it.
But today? The day after the official WI? Down 3. I did not lose 3 pounds in 24 hours! So, was I high yesterday? Low today? Maybe I should just stop with the ‘in-between’ weigh ins – 3 times is probably more than enough already. What do you think?
How often do you weigh yourself? How much do your numbers fluctuate?
