Yes, I weigh myself every day...no, I'm not crazy...

I use a website, it's www.physicsdiet.com
and it lets me weigh every day without losing my mind from watching my weight fluctuate. I weigh every morning and log it on SP and on PD. PD takes the weight and uses a weighted average to calculate my "current weight". Here's the chart from their website of all my weigh-ins since I started on January 4th:
Each > represents my weight for a given day. The straight line is my trend line. Right now, my trend shows a weekly weight loss of 3.51 pounds. As long as the little > stay in the green, my weight is moving down. The averaging smooths out the daily weight fluctuations as far as helping me keep motivated. Remember my trend takes into account my beginning weight loss so it's rather higher than the results I'm getting currently. You can see there toward the right of the graph where the blue line is above the trend. It means my weight loss is slowing down. That's ok by me since I'd rather take it off more slowly and get a lifelong change going.
