One of the benefits of recording what you eat daily
Daily recording of my food has made me calm when I see the scale jump a couple of pounds, usually right before I drop lower than I was before the temporary gain. I know I didn't eat an extra 7000 calories so I don't sweat the 2# fluxuations. If I didn't over eat I didn't gain fat. So I am no longer phased by the scale. As long as I am following my plan the weight comes off.
The scale does not determine what I will weigh, I do. I am loving this feeling of freedom and the confidence gained through recording food and exercise.
