Confused :(

Last week my weigh in on sunday said i had only lost 1 pound so i was dissapointed. Then yesterday i stepped on the scales a day early out of curiosity and it said i had lost nearly 6 pounds. So i was delighted.

Then today it says that my weight is up 6 pounds from yesterday? :confused: Also i have 2 weighing scales which both said the same thing so that isnt the problem. Can anybody shed any light on this?

weight fluctuates throughout the day and throughout the week

I NEVER weigh myself more than once a week, always on the same day at the same time. This is the most accurate way to keep an eye on your weight.

The one week that I done a test and weighed myself every day my weight would go up, then down, then up again so it wasn't worth it for me. When I kept it to once a week on the same day and time I never gained weight.

If you weigh daily be prepared for your weight to go up and down all the time.

It always happens.. Stick to weighing same day, same time.. You'll only get dihartened otherwise..

I do very first thing in the morning.. Putting your scales on a hard surface is meant to give a truer reading as well... I'd also stick to one set of scales.

When you say you've gained weight.. Do you mean the weight from yesterday or do you mean you've put the 1lbs you lost last week??

If you mean the weight from yesterday, I'd be looking at it as you'd STS... Frustraiting I know but it's not a gain..

How long have you been on your diet?? Are you platoeing??(spelt wrong I know :eek: )

STS is Stayed the Same.

Did you have a high sodium or high sugar or high carb day yesterday? That could well account for the gain....chug plenty of fluids if that is the case.
