    Does anybody else lose weight in bursts?

    I'll be working out, mostly weight lifting but some walking and everyday living type of exercise along with it, and my diet will be varying, averaging a deficit but not always. I'll weigh every day at the same time.

    And the scale will say the exact same number for three or four days straight. Then it will either go up a little and hold steady for a while, or it will go down by one to two pounds, and hold steady again for a few days. I'm on estrogen supplementation so my hormonal levels are pretty steady, if it matters.

    I've done research and seen that this is a fairly common occurrence, but no one has been able to explain it!

    Can you?
