Normal to change even as much as 5 or 6 pounds from morning to night for me. That is why I like to really keep track with the same day and same time weigh in each week. The way I can for sure tell if I am really losing is how my clothes fit.

And I have fluctuated 9lb or more within the course of a few hours. I think a lot of people are tuned in to their body and realize this is what it normally does to them, whereas other may not be tuned in, and can freak out when they suddenly realize this has happened. Of course, if you are particularly worried, you could always talk with your Dr about it.

Absolutely normal. I've fluctated as much as 9 lbs in a single 24 hour period! It's all affected by the foods you eat, the sodium intake you have, your stress level, hormones, even how you sleep.

This is why I don't have a goal weight, I have a goal range. :)

Depending on your size, 3 pounds, 5 pounds, some as much as 25 pounds. Think of your weight as a vital's not static. Studies have proven that the scale is not a great success tool for weight loss (it IS important for maintaining your goal weight). So don't get too caught up in what the scale says.

Find different ways to measure your progress: measure your waist, hips, thighs, and arms; how long you can hold a plank position, how long you can run....

how much is a normal weight range?

is it normal to fluctuate up to 3 pound difference? 5?

I would like to know so that I know when my weight is fluctuating, if its "normal" fluctuation or if its actually gaining?
