<p style="padding-bottom:2px;">I love Indian food. I'm not Indian, but most of my coworkers are. And India's independence day, and Indian Restaurant's buffets, and.. well you get the picture.</p>

I know you're not supposed to weigh yourself every day, but, yesterday I was at 207. I ate very well yesterday (ie., healthy). I walked for 3 miles on the treadmill. This morning, I weighed 208. I went up a pound.<br><br>
I hate when that happens.<br><br>
And I go on vacation next week. Uh-oh...

<p>tru 'dat. I'm all about daily weigh-ins, too, but I try to remember that trends are what to watch. I like the graphing tool in the hacker's diet which does a really good job at making sense of the daily weights in a big picture. Here's an example of mine for the last few months:</p>
<p> </p>
<p><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/92640/width/1000/height/800/flags/" target="_blank"><img alt="Steve's weight chart" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="17597" data-type="61" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/17597/width/667/height/500" style="; width: 667px; height: 500px"></a></p>
<p> </p>
<p>Green dots are the daily weight, but the red line is the "actual" weight acccording to the site. The trend, if you will. As long as the trend is going in the correct direction, the daily weight doesn't matter much.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Looking at the chart, after the weight-loss contest, I predictably gained back some. I also slacked in the daily weigh-ins (yes there is a correlation). In August I started losing again but in the last week I've flat-lined.. which is better than gaining, I guess. Overall, in this time period, I'm up a few lbs.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Just google hacker's diet to set this up yourself.</p>

I have a rather extensive spreadsheet of my own. Have been tracking all I have run/walked/biked daily, and weekly weight since 2003. What's annoying to me is, every week I would put that number down, and I didn't do anything about it. And the number weekly would go up, and up, and up. Yet I didn't change my behavior.<br><br>
Speaking of trends, with the daily weigh ins, it was interesting. I would always see a similar pattern (when I was losing weight, not now). I would lose like one of two pounds between Sunday and Monday morning. Then, I would gain on Tuesday and maybe Wednesday, sometimes Thursday. Almost every week.<br><br>
But my eating (at the time) stayed the same.<br><br>
I'll check out hacker's diet.

<p>I'm the opposite. I tend to do well during the week and then take a couple steps back on the weekends when my routine is thrown out of whack.</p>
