for those trying to cut osme pounds before the holidays. Don't step on the scale to often. keep it down to once a week and make sure it is the same time each week. For example, Last sat. afternoon I stepped on a scale. 165lbs. Next morning when I stepped on same scale, I weighed 155lbs. 10 lbs less than 12 hrs prior. Monday morning I weighted 164lbs on a different scale. Just an example of what dehydration can do to your weight fluctuation.
