I don't think its a good idea to weigh yourself multiple times a day
Thanks for the confirmation guys. I just hope the community takes up this piece of advice. I dont want to see people disappointed about their hard work because they're comparing their weight last morning to today after dinner.

Abs Diet anyone?
Im a three year amateur bodybuilder, and we always say "abs aren't made in the gym, theyre made in the kitchen!"
The tricky thing about abs is the stomach fat. You can work all three layers of ab muscles everyday but you still wont get abs unless you have terrifically low amounts of bodyfat. How much percent im not sure (for females) for guys we'll need at least lower than 10% body fat for a 6 pack.
In other words, an ab diet will be a weight loss diet. Working your obliques and doing crunches, leg raises, while youre losing weight will give you some fine attractive lines on your stomach once the fat is gone. Getting abs isnt about working them hard, its about working hard to lose weight.

I don't think its a good idea to weigh yourself multiple times a day
I'm new to the community here, and ironically, im not here for fat loss, but for weight gain. I've seen a lot of the people here weighing themselves multiple times a day; in the morning, before dinner, before bed.
As a bodybuilder, i only weigh myself in the morning, naked, empty stomach, after going to the bathroom. I do this because it eliminates the potential of food weight, minimizes water weight fluctuation, and sets a controlled condition that you can use to measure your progress. If you weigh throughout the day, then your weight will go up and down by half a pound or so depending on what you've eaten in the day and how much exercise is done, or how many hours youve been awake. Those half pound, one pound fluctuations dont transfer over to long term weight loss or gain, its how much food you've got in your stomach.
Yet i see a lot of members logging in a gain of 0.4 pounds and they become discouraged, asking "what am i doing wrong? I'm sticking to the diet and i just finished a walk in the morning!" Maybe you had a big lunch and that food is still sitting in your stomach, and causing the number on the scale to be undesirable. But if you weigh in the morning, thats as accurate you can get without all the confounding variables.
