This is one area where I have to disagree.
Weight measurement (done on the same scale, all the time) is an objective measure of our healthy lifestyle.
I have read more than once that the 5% (or sometimes 3%, depends on the source) who keep the weight off weigh themselves, as often as every day.
I am well aware about daily fluctuations, and take them into consideration.
I have lost about 102 pounds and have kept it off since September 2010. I am a binge eater. Talk about hard work!
I enter my weekly weight into SP.
I weigh myself daily, on the same scale at the same time in my morning routine. This weigh in provides feedback for me about how I should eat in the upcoming day. This is nothing more than a feedback loop, which can be used for a continuous improvement cycle of health management. I work in quality assurance, so daily weigh ins make sense to me. I do realize that they may drive other folks crazy!
I have also learned a lot about my maintenance range. A certain weight above my goal, I feel sliuggish and bloated. A certain weight below it, I feel weak and trembly. So I try to stay at the sweet spot, and daily weigh ints guide me in this.
