    I used to freak out about it, like this morning I weight one pound more that last week, and I kept with my caloric deficit and my weight training and cardio, when I got on the scale after 8 hours of sleeps, I wasn't shock to see that I was 1 pound heavier, because the night before I was busy doing the day, I ended up hitting my workout after 8pm, that made me eat my post workout meal late. I went to bed 2 hours later. I woke up with last night meal in my belly. I went to the gym this morning came back home weight myself again, I was 2 lbs lighter. You can't trust the scale too much.

    Had a client the week before weigh in and was 1.5lbs heavier than the previous week. This week's weigh in 2.5lbs less. So the average was still 1lbs a week. Ate and exercised the same both weeks. Needless to say she's happier this week.

    Needed this post! I'm a recovering scale addict who has suddenly found her way back to daily weighing. I'm trying hard to keep all of this in mind when I see the daily fluctuations.

    Some people can't handle the scale. They "freak out".

    Just stop weighing!!! You didn't weigh yourself multiple times a day when you were getting fat, so you've proved you can do it.

    Take serial pictures of yourself wearing the same outfit, standing in the same position and see the real changes. That number on the scale is a single point in time, not a reflection of your reality. Like when you pause a TV show the person almost always has some weird expression on their face that you just happened to have caught them in for that instant. That's not what they really look like.

    I've been more or less the same for about 9 days now, it's discouraging but I know I'm still doing everything right so just have to wait for the scale to catch up! :anguished:
