What does everyone think about daily vs weekly weigh in?
I've always been a proponent of the weekly weigh-in strategy during the weight loss phase. I am generally pretty sure I will see a loss that way (though there have been the occasional exceptions). Really, if you're honest in logging your food and your calorie burn is correct, I've found the actual weight loss (on average) to be almost spot-on to what the math predicts.
Now, once we get to the maintenance phase of our journey, I think the daily weigh-in may be a good idea. But, really, it's what works for you. If you can deal with the daily fluctuations, that's great. And thinking about it, logging those might give you some useful data. Why not try it? You can always go back to weekly if it doesn't work out.
