Old post on daily weigh-in and calculating an average daily loss

A long while back - I think maybe in December - someone posted a suggestion re calculating and graphing daily weight loss. Can't remember all the details but I've tried and tried and can't find the thread. Does anyone know what I am talking about and, if yes, can someone repost that particular post?

Your weight will fluctuate everyday between 3 to 5 lbs. You should NOT be weighing everyday, once every 3 to 5 days is enough!

to op: Is this it?

Many people weigh daily it is not going to hurt us and many of us it keeps us motivated to stay on task.....

I use Google 15 - link below. I don't think there is anything wrong with weighing everyday. Yes, you will see your weight fluctuations from day to day, but that will just help you to know your body even better. I weigh every day but only record every Friday.

Not weighing daily isn't going to change the fact that wieght fluctuates during the day and base on other factors. If I only weigh once a week and it happens to be the day I start my period, I will get an unrealistic representation of my efforts over the last week. Weighing daily under the same circumstances (time, clothes, etc.) provides a better understanding of the normal fluxuations. For me, it also keeps me honest so that I can't pretend that that hot fudge sundae I ate last night had no impact.

So while I appreciate you opinion, I do not agree.
