Your daily weights can fluctuate because of water retention (especially for that TOM - time of month) and if you have pooped, peed, etc. I prefer weekly weights - but some people like the reassurance (or possible heartbreak) of the dailt weigh-ins. Some weeks, you might not see a loss in weight, but you'll see a loss in measurements or an increase in energy.

I agree - weekly weigh-ins are better, and taking measurements is also important. I actually weigh myself daily because I'm obsessive about it, but I think weekly weigh-ins give you a much more accurate picture of how you are doing.

Weekly weigh-ins have always worked well for me personally. If your weight hasn't changed, you can use that as useful information for making changes to your routines or diet, or at least motivation to do better next week. If you choose the weekly weigh-in, don't get discouraged, just keep on going and the weight will come off!

Hi everyone, just trying to decide if I should go for a weigh in this week or next. After my first week in the program, my weight went down 2 lbs. I was encouraged by that and motivated me to keep at it.
They recommend we come in for weigh ins at least every 2 weeks. My concern is that if I go in today or tomorrow and it hasn't changed or has gone up, will I get discouraged?
I am trying to hang on to my motivation right now. I know it takes time, but I am impatient and need results. I want my pants to fit more comfortably, I want to know that even if its slowly, the weight IS coming down.
My Wii fit at home says my weight hasn't changed but it is different than the dr scales (I weigh 5 lb more at the dr!) So Should I go for a weigh in this week? Or wait another week?
