    Now, I know that it is normal for your body's weight to fluctuate throughout the day due to various factors, and the average being between 3 to 5lbs a day BUT my weight fluctuates by about 7lbs - sometimes even 8lbs by evening...!!

    This seems a lot to me, and of course is always disheartening!! Makes me question my true weight.

    Does anyone else have this problem?

    Me too! I am usually about 5lbs heavier in the evening!


    Which is why I chose a morning weigh in with my CDC!

    well can you explain this to me. I weighed myself yesterday morning and had lost 3lb from Saturday and then this morning i had put that 3lb back on BUT i aint broke the diet or bliped or anything like that and i only weight myself in the morning after i go the loo. So yesterday having been to see my CDC at 5pm i was really happy i had lost 4lb, to find out this morning i have just put 3lb of that 4lb on over night :( How? Why? ~sobs~

    It's just too disheartening!!! My scales have been hidden (by my very supportive hubby) So I can't weigh myself between weigh ins lol!

    lol Tasha - I just don't think there is any explanation - hence why it is best to weigh yourself on a weekly and not daily basis!!

    Like you, weigh in Monday i weighed 12'2....
    This morning, 12'7....

    It's a bit of a joke but fingers crossed our bodies sort themselves out for next WI day!!

    I fluctuate about 3-4lbs during the day as well. I find myself moving the scales to various parts of the bathroom to get it down lb or 2!!
    I also weigh in the morning after a wee and anyhting else I can squeeze out!!!:sick0019:

    that sounds so familiar moving the scales around the room to find the best place to make yourself lighter. I weight at least 3 lbs more in the evening. I have not lost a thing since Saturday, how is that possible???

    I know - I always go by my scale and it does usually differ even 7-8lbs between morning and evening. I am a lil bit scale obsessed so I no longer care...haha
    I only take my morning readings seriously - anything later it's just an interesting experiment...shall we say? xxx
