What do you guys hope to see on the scale when you weigh in? Whether you weigh in daily or weekly, are you simply hoping to see a number that is within your maintenance range or do you have more strict goals that you follow? For example, is your range 145-150 lbs but hope to see a daily fluctuation of 145-147 and once you reach the higher end of your range, you start managing your caloric intake a bit more? Or is any weight within your range fine to you day to day?
My maintenance range is 125-127 lbs. Depending on how much water I retain or lose, I go as high as 128. So really, I'm wondering if my range should be more like 124-128. I have no idea how to best determine how wide the range should be and what to expect day to day. Also, I'm wondering if my daily fluctuations are typical or not. Oh btw, I'm a 5'6" female, 29 years old.
This is what I have logged the past few days:
8/7: 128 (just returned from vacation so was retaining some water)
