Since I’ve been focusing on losing weight I’ve been weighing myself once a week on the same day. Monday has been the day because the Lose It app starts its weeks on Monday. That way I can log my food from Monday through Sunday, weigh in on Monday morning to see my results, then start logging a fresh new week.
It works, for the most part. Except when Sunday is a particularly bad day. A big dinner or a couple glasses of wine can throw off my Monday morning weigh in even if I’m under my weekly calories. At least that’s my assumption when that happens. Not sure if this is legit!
I’ve never been one of those people to weigh myself every day or multiple times a day but every once and a while I can’t resist the urge in the morning. Today was one of those days. I stepped on the scale and weighed 4.6 lbs LESS than I did on Monday. WOOT WOOT! But, I didn’t log it. Because it’s not Monday.
I know that sounds super picky but I have a system and it seems to work. Monday’s weigh in might be better or worse than today’s, frustrating, yes, but that’s the official weigh in day so that’s what gets logged.
So on the question…
Do you weigh in on different days and intervals or do you have an official weigh in day? If you do weigh in more often, do you see more variation (ups and downs)? Do you think it matters?
I’d love to hear your thoughts on this!
