Thank you for your response... I'll just weight myself in the morning once... After I empty my bladder :)

A lot of peoples weight fluctuates during the day - as noted already, it is perfectly normal. My weight could fluctuate by A LOT of lbs - always tons heavier at night. That is often when my toes, ankles and fingers would visibly show the signs of fluid retention, but I also felt it in my face and abdomen too. My waist would go up by quite a bit during the day.

Other than just plain curiosity (which it was with me) , I would be inclined to forget about weighing so often - especially if you are prone to anxiety issues because of it.

That's pretty easy...ever weighed a glass of water?? ever weighed everything in your lunch?? Whatever we eat/drink throughout the day is weighed right along with the "real us". And when you use the Restroom, or do some exercise and get a bit dehydrated, down goes some of the weight...

Which is why its quite pointless to weigh yourself more than once a day!! I usually do it first thing in the morning, after a restroom break, and before I load up with coffee and breakfast!
That being said...I actually average my seven days for a "weekly" weigh in. THAT is the important number for me!

Many folks get frustrated watching the ups/downs every day...I actually find it motivating..."OK I'm doing good--lets keep it that way today", or.."Ooops, up a bit today, better be more mindful."

PS...I've also noted I am "sodium sensitive"....Salty food = 2 or 3 pounds of water weight gain!!
PPS...Scales are notoriously inaccurate also!! So that can be part of the fluctuations!
