need some motivation, did I loose that pound?

ok my weight loss has always been slow although not a 100 % sure though because i was weighing myself on scales that didnt work properly at the begining but now i think i am strugerling to loose even a pound i have stuck to my diet but havent been going to the gym, the last time i went was about a month ago, but this last week has been hard because i didnt see a change in my weight at all anyway the day before yesterday i weighed myself and it said i had lost a pound but when i got on the scales today the pound i had lost was gone! i know i shouldnt weigh myself too often but couldnt help it since im not on target anymore, and sorry if im repeating myself if you have seen my other posts anyway havent quite given up yet just wonderd if anyone else had similar problems or problems with their scales.

Hey hun

I weigh every day and my weight fluctates up and down 1-2lbs, it can be affected by so many things, water retention, needing a number 2, how much you ate the day before, TOTM etc. It would be pretty much impossible to gain 1lb of fat overnight as you would need to eat 3500 calories more than your body needs. Stick with it and those pesky scales are bound to reward you sooner or later.

I weigh myself most days, but only count the official weekly ones as actual weight loss. I definitely get fluctuations, it can be loads of things. TOTM is horrifying, last time gained 3lbs overnight, and even though I realised that was why I felt devastated. It all disappeared with a bang the following week.
wow well thats good to know, also was wondering when is the best time to weigh yourself or does it not matter?

If you can, first thing in the morning after you've been to the toilet. Otherwise just when you can, but try to do it at the same time of day each time or you won't be able to tell if you're losing.

I normally do it about 9.30am. I can't normally get in the bathroom as soon as I get up as I have housemates who start work earlier than me... have had the house to myself this week though so have done it out of curiosity, I'm 1-2lbs lighter first thing!
