How often...

    I weigh myself daily (in the morning, nekked, after I pee) and use to track my overall weight trend (it smooths out the daily fluctuations).

    Daily after using the restroom I like to see how my body reacts to different things life throws my way

    Usually 2 or 3 times a week. I record my weight on Monday. Sometimes I will weigh on Wednesday and/or Friday just to see how things are going, but I don't write it down anywhere.

    Mostly daily and I log it in Happy Scale. I only log new lows here.

    But sometimes I go through phases of not bothering as I'm also happy to trust the process.

    I weigh every day...when there is a consistent drop in weight (two days in a row at same weight) I log it :)

    When I was losing weight I weighed in every morning and it was remarkably consistent and predictable. Now that I'm on maintenance I don't weight myself on any regular basis but end up on the scale once a week or so just to let it know I'm still around.

    First 65 lbs I weighed daily and plotted a trend line.

    Then I hit onederland and that really messed with my head. Lots of self-sabotage.

    So I've decided to put the scale away until at least May 31 and just focus on eating food that fills me up and is generally healthy (but not overly restrictive), and maintaining at least a bit of a deficit every day. My calorie goal has me at a 750 cal/day deficit so I've got a lot of wiggle room if I'm extra hungry or need to squeeze in a treat.

    I weigh myself every morning just to "see." I record my weight once a week.

    I couldn't stand the daily fluctuations, since if my weight was up I'd get discouraged and eat and if it was down I'd want to celebrate and eat something, or I'd expect daily losses and when they didn't happen, I'd get unhappy. So when I'm trying to lose I weigh only about once a week. I pick a day when I won't have water weight gain from hard exercise or a restaurant meal. Now that I'm maintaining, it's less often than that, though I know from the past that I tend to ignore the scale if I have been eating badly.

    Sometimes I weigh daily, other times, weekly.

    It really doesn't matter!! The most important thing is to make sure that your mood should not be affected by what the scale says.

    Also weigh first thing in the morning, in the same clothes (or naked), after going to the toiler and before drinking or eating anything. This is the most consistent way to weigh.
