Nah, I am up and down by a pound almost daily. Yesterday I was 163, this morning 164.2. I think those bounces have to do with how much water you retain and that involves a lot of things. If your average over many days starts to edge up that is a different mater.

25-Jul -12 170 - lowest in 9 years

Target Range 170 -175
Highest 210lbs (2002)

This is my first weigh-in since April 18th. No scales for the lasxt 3 months while on vacation. While away we did lots of hiking (over 250 miles), much of it at altitude. However we ate outrageously, and inconsistently, compared to how we normally eat. Much of the time I had a craving for sweet things and ate pancakes or sticky pastries for breakfast, plus ice cream in the late afternoon. Sometimes a large cooked breakfast, then a granola bar and apple while out, followed by a normal evening meal. We both expected to have gained weight when we got back, as we did last year after 7 months in England. (I put on 8lbs despite intense hiking - 625 miles).

This is the lowest weight I've been since my WW year of 2003, and DW reckons she has not seen her new low since before the kids were born. We've been back 4 days now, and so far no increase in weight, but we don't expect it to last since we simply don't exercise in the same way we do on these vacations.

Whatever the reasons, we are delighted with the unexpected weight loss.

OK, I need to start posting again. Last time was in January! And the numbers aren't pretty. In January we got seriously into the mode of finding our new house as our rental (after selling our prior house) was about up. We were looking at places about 60 miles from where we were living so for a couple of months we were doing major driving to the new area and eating out all the time. At one point, I actually gained 5 pounds in one week (and I average losing about .5 pound a week when I work hard at it). Then, after we bought and moved in, we ate out a lot while getting the house put together. By then I was off track on food and just stagnated for a few months. So....

8/20/10 205.4
....
1/12/11 190.4
....
7/14 174.4
....
8/21 169.6
....
10/29 164.6
...
1/11/12 162

....
7/25/12 178.2

Congratulations Alan & Welcome back Katsmeow
I weighed in this morning I am still one pound over my goal weight. I weighed myself last week and I was up two pounds so I really started watching my eating.

Here is something strange. I have a very accurate digital scale. I always weigh myself in the morning after getting up so my measurements are consistent. I often weigh myself just before going to bed because I find it interesting how much weight you lose overnight. Every time I have checked I lose weight overnight (generally around 1 pound) except last night. Last night I appear to have gained .4 pounds (from 163.6 at night to 164 in the morning). I re-calibrated the scale and got the same weight. I didn't consume more water than I disposed of during the night. The only thing I can think of is that I must have misread the scale -- seeing a 163 where there was really a 164 but it seemed pretty clear at the time. Can anyone figure out a different explanation?

Few more come to mind:
  • Weak battery
  • Scale on the carpet
  • Sensor getting old
  • Temperature difference and the scale is not temperature compensated
