What the scale doesn't show

I normally weigh in daily. It works for me and I can see patterns in why it goes up and down.

Woke up this morning and the scale was up +2.2 lbs. Did I cry, go stuff my head in a tub of ice cream or stop tracking? NO

What the number on the scale this morning doesn't show is that it was really humid yesterday and I drank a lot of water. I made over 10,000 steps. I also stayed on plan. I'm sensitive to sodium so that was probably a factor as well. I have no doubt I'll be back to yesterday's weight tomorrow or the next day. Onwards and downwards

Don't let the scale dictate what kind of day you will have! Stay strong

Today I went on a very hot and muggy 50 minute walk and biked for 46 minutes.

If you know daily weigh-ins have variations and you can explain them, then I have to ask... why bother weigh-in every day? I understand that daily weigh-ins works for a lot of people but I just don't get it.

I like to see which way it's trending so that I can put the brakes on early if I see that it continues to go up.
Some like to weigh in monthly, some weekly and some of us daily. Whatever works best for you.
