Kathy - The Scale Dilemna

To weigh or not to weigh that is the question.  I have tried both - weighing once a week, which stretches out longer and longer as I start to dread getting on the scale and seeing absolutely no downward movement or weighing every day and being driven crazy with the fluctuations.  This week is a case in point:  Beginning weight: 134.  Day 2-135, Day 3-135, Day 4 - 132, Day 5: forgot to weigh, Day 6-135, Day 7-132. So does this mean I have lost 2 lbs ?  I guess I have for today! 

Update:  Deferred the tromp until later tonight to take advantage of the moonlight - gorgeous!  Did 40 minutes of yoga and 15 minutes of KB swings. I also have decided to measure my body fat percentage and see how that goes. 

Results from recent and ongoing poll:

1)  One person weighs everyday but also takes measurements.
2)  One person weighs everyday but only writes it down once a week.
3)  One person weighs about once a week.
