Weigh Weekly, Bi-Weekly Or Monthly




I started out with Spark & I weighed daily. Drop a pound, up 0.5, down 0.5, up 2 pounds, down 1. It nearly drove me crazy trying 2 get something N a steady downward trend.

water weight can fluctuate. I switched 2 weekly weigh-ins & I can see a steady downward trend without the water shift problems. Women have water weight variations more severe than mine.

  • Thanks for sharing this, I've been weighing daily since having open heart surgery 1 year ago in May - and it continues today. The weight is constantly up and down - but I know it's the water weight - which is what I'm supposing to be watching for my cardiologist to know how to adjust my diuretics, so now I'm only going to put down for my SP weigh in once or twice a month.

  • I should stop weighing daily. I was losing weight so well and now I hit a wall. I'm up 7 pounds. I have a scale at home and a scale is at work. I don't know which scale is accurate. I hope part of the reason I'm gaining is due to water weight. I know part of the weight is from eating too many sweets. I can do so good for so long and then a bomb explodes and I go nuts. I'm slowly getting back on track.
    Thanks for reading my blabber.
