Anyone here around 5'8?

How much does your weight fluctuate from day to day? I mean..I'll wake up and I'm 155...the next day I'm 158...155...157...etc etc.

Anyone else have this issue?

I'm 6 feet tall and a guy. I flucuate a ton and I think that is totally normal.

OP here.. sorry didn't specify..I'm a 17 year old girl..but I guess it's the same. Makes it hard to see how much weight you've lost, though. =\

I don't think your height has anything to do with how much your weight fluctuates on a day to day basis. Follow the trend!! My weight goes up and down between 137-142. As long as I don't see 143 I know I'm doing ok. If I'm at 137 I'm probably dehydrated, If I'm at 141 or 142 I've either eaten a big meal in the last day or two or haven't had enough bm's (tmi!). My weight has fluctuated like that my whole life no matter what my weight-there is always a 4-5 lb range I can follow in a week. Watch you weight and you will soon "know" when you are really losing.

I'm 5'9" female and my weight goes up and down all the time. I don't think it's too unusual! I can go from 178 to 176 overnight (of course as soon as I have my breakfast, etc. it goes back up again!).

I'm 5'8" and my weight can fluctuate 2 or 3 pounds from day to day. It can change for a number of reasons...like where you are hormonally, how much sodium you had, etc. I weigh daily too just to keep track but I look at trends...like over a period of a week or two I want an downward trend...or at least I want my weight not to go higher than my average high.

OP back. The one thing that scares me a lot though is how easily tall people can gain 5-10 lbs without really realizing it (I gained 15 lbs and fit into the same clothes...such a shock when I stepped on the scale!) So, with diets (like FSD) when you're not supposed to weigh in for 10 days, 2 weeks, etc..I get nervous that I might gain the weight back without realizing =\

I'm 5'8" and I fluctuate as much as 5 lbs in day-to-day weigh-ins, even when my Monday morning "official" weight is going down by about a pound and a quarter. This is perfectly normal. Watch the weekly trend. Like you, I prefer to weigh every day, but I don't worry too much about what the scale says except for Monday mornings.

It helps to graph your "official" weekly weigh-in. Then you can see the overall trend even on days when your weight is inexplicably up a bit.

I'm 5'8 and fluctuate anywhere between 154 and 159..I'm a 20 yr old girl, and I find it super frustrating also!

4.21, OP here...EXACTLY! That's my range too! And considering I REALLY want to break 150, going from 153 to 157 overnight is a real pain!
