    About two months ago, for no reason, I put on 5 lbs in a week!

    This was supported by same scales, weighing first thing, on same day etc.

    My weight flucated by a lb either way since then.

    Last week, I lost the 5lbs!! Similar reading this week shows that it was a relaible reading?

  4. Yeah I'm like this :(. I get really excited when I lose weight (like 3lbs in a day for no reason) but then super depressed if I put a pound on! How often do you weigh yourself? x

    Mine does too. I think it's a combination of imprecise scales, general weight fluctuations and hydration levels etc. It's a pain and a good reason why I should only weigh myself on weigh in day but I'm always curious to see where I'm at and weigh myself anyway :rolleyes:.

    I've been amazed that I have weighed myself for the last four days running and been exactly the same weight each time - literally the first time in 9 months of dieting that there hasn't been any fluctuation.
