Why The Scale Lies

Great article on weighing yourself and what to think about when you do so: Why The Scale Lies

My personal technique (lately with the help of Physics Diet is to weigh myself every morning right after I get out of bed. I then record it and maintain a 10% moving average (well, that site does it for me, I used to use Excel or something). This smooths out the highs and lows and shows you if you are losing weight or gaining and at what rate. Doing this every day keeps things in perspective. Far from obsessing over my weight each day, I simply record it and use it as a guide for how I am doing over the very, very long time it will take me to lose the weight I want to lose (I am going from about 250+ to 185 if I can... I am doing it slowly by changing my eating habits and attitudes toward food and activity).
