My weight goes up and down every week in between about 5 lbs. How is your weight? does it go up and down? I weighed myself tonight and I weigh 165lbs. Last week I was 160lbs and before that i was 164lbs.. lol My moms weight does the same thing but hers is in between 15lbs What about you?

Yes my weight fluctautes between ten pounds, but when i as my physician, he told me that since I'm a woman that that could be water storage. Men store water also, but not as much as women. Also factor in what you ate, because certain foods are more dense then others.

I think some of it was water weight. I was also weighed after i ate so those could play a rule as to why it goes up and down.

I am just like you....5 pounds up and then it takes me a while to get that 5 pounds down. Then once I get back down, I start going up again. It is very frustrating. It is amazing how much better I feel when I am 5 pounds down, rather than the 5 pounds up:)

Oh, you are so lucky. I can definitely tell the difference. When I am 5 lbs heavier, my stomach isn't flat at all. It seems that all of that weight is right on my belly. It is so gross!

I vary about 2-3 pounds, I'm very strict with myself about my weight since I used to weigh a lot more than I do now. I don't want to have to lose it all over again! As it is, I need to drop about 25 pounds.
