You are correct, Grebjack - sodium and temperature/humidity can play a role in how our weight fluctuates.

Even whether or not we've been visiting the bathroom regularly is a factor.

That's why it's best not to obsess, but to understand how our bodies react to certain things; and work with it, accordingly.

Good plan.

I weigh in daily, but I don't freak when my weight changes by two or three pounds either way - I gain and lose a lot of water weight based on the temperature and humidity, eating processed (high sodium) foods, and my menstrual cycle, so as long as I'm in that range, I'm content. If I get more than four pounds from my goal weight either way, then I deliberately correct while the change is small enough to correct easily.

I weigh in weekly but also check mid-week when my curiosity gets the better of me. lol It has worked pretty well and I the only time I have had a weird weigh-in was at that 'time of the month'.

I didn't know there was an official site you could do the moving average.
That's why I have a spreadsheet with the formulas.

I got it from Everyday Einstein (I believe that's the name of the place)

For the first year, I weighed in officially every Sunday. Sometimes, I would check between weigh-in days to see how I was doing. Recently, another team pointed me to a cool online website called WeightGrapher.com, where you log daily weights and it calculates a moving average. I do like this better as it evens out the weird bumps up or down that you can get from an off day, or perhaps a day with too much sodium.

I weigh daily.

I need to keep an eye on my weight so I never have to add another pound to my ticker. I'm also starting to understand what foods add temporary sodium weight.

I use Monday as my official weigh-in for spark. That kind of keeps me on track over the weekends.

I weigh in monthly, which works for me!

Do you weigh daily, weekly, monthly, or not at all?

In order not to obsess over one day or another; I found a "running average" is my best tactic.
I weigh daily - but put it in a spreadsheet, so I can see trends.

It calculates my weight (average) on last week, two weeks, month, 45 days and 90 days.
That way, I can see trends, rather than focusing on one day.

Works for me, but not for everyone, obviously.
