My weight varies significantly depending on when I weigh myself and how soon I do so after eating. For instance, if I eat lunch at 3:00pm and then weigh myself at work at 5:00 pm I might weigh 165, but then when I get off at 7:30 am I might weigh 163. Since I only weigh myself when I'm at work, when or how should I weigh myself?

First thing in the morning is best. Get out of bed, visit the bathroom, hop on the scale. If you can't do that, try to do it as early in the day as possible and in as consistent a manner as possible.

Of course you weigh more after meals! If you eight eight ounces of food and drink an 8-ounce glass of water, guess what? You're now one pound heavier than you were before you ate/drank.

Also, fluctuations are perfectly normal. Don't sweat small trends... just look for a gradual downward slope in your weight.
