How much weight fluctuation is considered normal? I'm told there is such a thing as "water weight" which can explain small fluctuations -- though all mention of "water weight" I've found has been on dieting websites so I'm not sure what the scientific status of the notion is (I've asked a related question about that here).

How much weight fluctuation (in either direction) over what period of time is normal for an otherwise healthy individual?
