Simple question... I ask it because I find myself frequently weighing myself and seeing very subtle results.. This sometimes leads to a drop in motivation or an increase, its kinda hit or miss..

I don't advise weighing in. its counter productive. if you see gains in waist size and pants size then you are making gains. I never base my weight on anything. if you keep staring at the scale you waste time that could be more productive.Yetti
Farmers Walks for distance.
44lb kettle bell work out, 1 set is 1 each of suit case carry right side, then left side, then 1 handed waiter walk(over head carry)each side up and down the hill.
the key is finding a mild hill 4-6% grade approx 300 feet each way. 2 trips up and back = 1 set x 4. Goal for August was 65lb waiter walks. never made it due to injury. I did manage to work my way to the 53lb'r for 4 sets before my hip acted up.

Wasting time? It takes 10 seconds.
weigh yourself once a week OP right in the morning after you go to the bathroom. Any other time your number will be all over the place.There is always someone less fortunate, with real hunger, with real adversity, who made something of themselves. What is your excuse?

Yup. Once a week, same morning. Then recalculate your TDEE and/or adjust your caloric intake if your weight gain/loss isn't at your taste.Aspiring Raw Powerlifter 74kg Weight Class

I weigh myself daily but keep a running log of my average weight over the last 7 days. When I'm cutting, my "average" goes down 0.2-0.4 lbs per day almost without fail. I would actually be more discouraged weighing myself, checking again one week, and coming in heavier. That sometimes happens depending on the sodium/liquid intake for that day, then it goes right back down.
