I know people weigh themselves in different increments...but I have to wonder when you actually record the number...I tend to only record the number if I can hold on to it for 3 days or so. If I can then I will put it in there..however I am more partial to only recording a loss.

I haven't really been consistant on this but I try to record the losses, whether that be daily or weekly, it doesn't matter to me. It gives me incentive to keep it there after I see the weight chart with a lower dot.
First goal: 299 lbs - completed 11/8/14
Second goal: 280 lbs - completed
Third goal: 260 lbs - in progress
Fourth goal: 240 lbs
Fifth goal: 220 lbs
Final goal: 200 lbs
I'll review where I want to be at this point.

I record basically every day at the same time. This allows me to see if there are any cycles in water weight or bloating, and I can get a sense if these are monthly trends.
And psychologically for me, even if I ascribe a slight gain to water weight, it still motivates me to stay on track and be better in calorie intake for the next day.
I typically have a series of up and down weights within a pound range for a week long period before my body capitulates and shows it as a consistent and real weight loss.
It used to bother me when I was good with local calorie intake each day and I would see a weight gain on the scale, but now I understand how my trends work and I can live with the natural fluxuations.
But every body works differently.

I hop on the scales on either Saturday or Sunday morning first thing after I get up and get moving. Whatever the scales show, that is what I enter. It varies from week to week which day I use because I will sometimes get up and busy on Saturday and forget I need to do my weekly weigh-in. I will usually weigh myself mid-week just to see if I am staying on track, but still only record the weekly number on the weekend.
