Anyone weigh themselves daily?

I do and have done for years. My weight can go up or down by a couple of pounds for no calorific reason. The fluctuations are water retention caused by all the reasons previous posters have outlined.

It’s all to do with if you’ve exercised the day before, you are dehydrated, has a big meal, need a poo! My weight fluctuates depending where in the month I am too. A week before my period I tend to get really bloated and my weight can go up by 3/4 pounds. It’s normal for weight to fluctuate, don’t worry about it smile

I do. My weight can often vary by a pound or two although I do lose overall every week.

It's not a cop out at all to say it's water weight as it more than likely is - from drinking lots of water or water retention from salty food or time or the month etc. If you are eating at a calorie deficit it either that or you need a poo!

I find it totally bizarre and wondering if people have similar experiences.

I absolutely stick rigidly to my diet but some days I inexplicably go up a pound. It feels like a cop out to think it’s water retention or similar.

It’s so frustrating.

Weekly my weight does go down 1-2 pounds, which is normal. But these ups and downs during the week are beyond annoying.
