Many of us are daily weighers. Have you ever written down a different number, because it was not pleasing to you?
I'll be back, with my answer later.

    No, I've never done that.

    No I choose to pretend that number isn't there.
    I also know that de-nial is more than just a river in Egypt!

    I haven’t since I started writing down my daily weight. I also decided that whatever number it said when I first stepped on the scale was the number for the day - no “off and on”, no trying a different position on the scale, no standing on one leg, etc.

    I have not done this. However, I have ignored the number.

    If I ever did it, I, honestly, forget. Have spreadsheets since 2009.

    No. I’ve never kept a written record on my own.

    I never record my daily weights when I'm in daily-weighing mode. When I weigh daily, it's to see what fluctuation can look like, so I wouldn't record the wrong number.

    Impressive data bank, Al!

    Well my scale (same one WW uses but without computer hook-up) weighs to 0.2 LB and if it flickers between the two I do often use the lower weight. To see the trends I either average for 5 days or 7 days. Right now I weigh daily but just figure the average weight for the week on Sunday which is my "official" WW weigh in day even though I am not doing in person yet.
    I too use to use a spreadsheet to do the averaging but lately I am not using excel just hand writing my weight and average weight on my paper calendar.

    BTW, I use an app called Happy Scale, which is quite nice and shows performance trends. If you want to prophesy the future, there is a cost. Otherwise it is free.

    I use FitBit's app with an Aria scale. Don't want my daily (as God sees me) weights confusing the WW app.
