Accurate scales?

I go to a 7.30pm meeting, so by the time I weigh in, I've eaten breakfast, lunch and occasional snacks at work, as well as drinking tea and water throughout the day. I sometimes feel that my weight loss doesn't reflect the week as a whole, and is thrown out by weighing so late. For example, I had a piece of cake at someone's leaving do at work on WI day, which was within my Syns, but i stayed the same that day. I find it motivating to go to group and it keeps me more accountable than when I tried to do WW at home, but I just don't really trust the scales that much - I feel like weighing at home first thing in the morning would be most accurate. Anyone else feel the same, or am I just making excuses?

I also struggle a bit with having such a late WI as the group goes on for ages and I'm ravenous if I stay, and find myself not wanting to drink too much water etc during the day even if I'm thirsty

I agree with you. I only ever weigh in the morning often before breakfast. My sw group is at 11.15am so I have usually had breakfast and thats all.

But surely if you with in at night every week, and daily fluctuations would be consistent and therefore tote weight loss shouldn't be impacted

I'm a 7pm weigher too - it's a looooong day.

As long as it's consistent, it shouldn't matter too much. A piece of cake going through a digestive system won't undo a 1lb loss. It's such an I exact science that weighing in at the same time under roughly the same conditions is the best you can do.

However, I do find that what I do in the week doesn't always reflect on the scales - but usually if the scales have been unkind I get a double loss the week after.

Fabulously - I generally try and be consistent, e.g. I have a litre bottle of water on my desk that I get through, it's just a couple of times where I've been more thirsty and needed to drink more than normal but feel like it throws me out.
