Weigh Ins

4 06 2010

Question for you guys about weigh ins.  Do you have a specific day that you weigh in or are you a weigh in everyday type of person?

Several books I’ve read recommend getting a digital scale that measures weight including decimal points (which I have) and weighing in everyday.  As you guys know I’ve been weighing in every Wednesday with only so so results, well out of curiosity I weighed in Tuesday as well as Wednesday.  On Tuesday I had lost 2lbs, but when I did my normal weigh in on Wednesday I had only lost 0.8lbs…so I’m wondering what’s going on?  My diet hasn’t changed, I haven’t cheated, so what’s going wrong?

I’m thinking of switching my weigh ins to another day, either Friday or Monday, I’m also going to watch my carb intake more closely and my sodium in case its some sort of bloat effect.

Any ideas?

What does weighing in Tuesday or Wed matter if you are actually weight those weights on those days? You should probably watch your sodium intake more than your carb intake the night before a weigh-in as you can reatain the water. But again that doesn’t actually matter as it’s just water you should lose in a bit anyways. Good luck with what you decide though. I’m not too sure about weighing everyday though. You can start to lose track of why you’re doing it, not for the weight, but for the health.
