Haha, I don't think that's considered cheating. It's your tracker, and you can choose to use it as you like. If that means using it to record your lowest weigh-in, then go for it. It would be a bit obsessive to update your tracker *every* day, since you already know how much your weight can fluctuate on a day-to-day basis... :)

That's hilarious, but I'm not that compulsive.

my nephew was at my dad's and saw the scale when he used the bathroom. He weighed himself, got on the treadmill for 5 minutes or so, then weighed himself again and said, "I didn't lose a single pound!"

there is still a lot of experimentation for me so I check my weight more than once a week. I'm in maintenance now & I'm just ensuring that the pounds don't return.

If that's what motivates you to eat healthy and exercise then go for it! But the previous poster is correct about weight fluctuations vs. actual fat loss.

You don't have to eat the whole thing.

No, not evil or cheating but you may be driving yourself crazy! :-) Seriously, I recommend weighing once or maybe twice a week. Your weight can really fluctuate daily.

I weigh myself every day until I get the weight I want. Then, I put the lowest weight in the tracker. Am I evil? :)
