You could be retaining water differently on weekdays. Does your diet/activity/sleep differ at all on the weekends from weekdays (which it almost certainly does, at least a little, if you work outside the home)? If you do everything *exactly* the same way regardless of the day of the week, it's probably not a pattern that will continue, as it's most likely just a fluke. You're only comparing two weeks, after all.
Of course, it could also just be that your scale isn't sensitive enough to register smaller changes.

I have a silly question/issue:
My "official" weigh-in day is Sunday (where I record that day's weight), but in reality, I step on the scale every day or two just to get a peek. (I know that will probably drive me nuts, but I can't help it!)
For the last two weeks, I'm noticing that the scale doesn't budge throughout the week, but once I check on Saturday, I start seeing a dip. Then, on Sunday, right on cue, it shows I've lost 2 pounds for that week. I find this odd, since I don't do any workouts or exercise on Saturdays and Sundays.
This has happened twice now! Has this happened to anyone else?
I KNOW in my head that it's impossible, but I'm wondering if maybe I'm not eating enough calories throughout the week to support my workouts, so when I'm NOT exercising but still eating 1,200-1,300 calories on the weekends, I finally start showing the loss?
I know in my head, though, that the calculations don't add up, and I MUST be losing something throughout the week in order for me to lose 2 for the entire week. But I'm just wondering why it doesn't show until the weekend!
