If you want to weigh yourself, probably the morning is the best time. I've heard it's best to weigh yourself at the same time. Personally, I wouldn't want to weigh myself every day. Hope this helps. Eve :)
I weigh myself first thing in the morning before I eat or drink anything. This works Monday - Friday. On the weekends I have coffee, breakfast and usually 16 oz. of water before I get around to taking my shower. So, when I weigh myself there's usually a 2-3 lb increase over Friday's weight.
I don't take my weekend weigh-ins seriously since I know that there's a food/drink and time difference. On Mondays, I'm right back in the range I was on Friday.
You know, it really doesn't matter, since maintaining weight or changing weight is a long process. Weight varies for different reasons through the day, including distance from your last meal and how much water is in your system. Don't sweat the day to day, this takes time, so anytime you weight yourself will give you a pretty good indicator of how you're doing given you're weighing yourself regularly.
