How often do you weigh in?

I hate to say it, but I think I'm addicted to weighing myself, and that's not always a good look. I tend to weigh in each morning. Sometimes it's awesome, other times not so much! I'm trying to decide if I want to log my weight each day on here or just once a week. I doubt I'll be able to get out of the habit of my daily weigh in, but do I want to make it official? How often do you weigh in? What works best for you?


  • I weigh daily & track it on a personal spreadsheet. I weigh in here each Monday. Daily helps to see the overall downward trend, and I can see the weekly/monthly averages as well. I also graph the daily weights as well. It's a big spiky graph, but the trendline is a smooth downward slope.

    I weigh daily, but I use Libra weight trend app. Trending helps to mitigate the aggravation of the ups and downs of daily weighing.

    I weigh daily first thing in the am. I actually like doing it. It helps to keep me motivated and to evaluate the day before (what I ate, activity, emotions, ect.) I've learned a lot about my body by doing this.

    Wednesdays! Weigh-in Wednesdays are what I call it :)
    I only let myself do it once a week so I don't let the number control my emotions, ie being down about gaining some.

    I used to be really bad about stepping on the scale constantly, but I'm trying to control my bad habit to every Monday.

    Weight fluctuates, so weighing yourself daily doesn't provide a clear picture of weight loss. Weighing yourself once or twice a week in the morning is best.

    It does if you use a trend weight app. "Best" is relative. That would not be best for me at all.

    Every day and track in both Happy Scale &Libra.
    Daily provides me "clearest" picture because I know what's happening with the fluctuations. Otherwise, if the number is not what I prefer, I don't know if it's true weight or just water retention.

    I used to weigh myself every day, but I noticed a pattern where I would get defeated and upset if I gained or lost a lbs., half a lbs. Etc. I since donated my scale and have not weighed myself in almost 3 months. I lost two dress sizes and have been basing my results of clothing sizes from NY and Co. Which has the closest to neutral sizing for my body type. I also take measurements once a month. That's it. Weighing yourself can become addicting like anything else. So, since the scale has been gone, it's kinda like out of sight, out of mind.

    I do most everyday...but fluctuations kind of make me anxious. However, I do find that I will be more diligent through out the day if I see a number that I was hoping was lower.

    I weigh every morning before I've eaten or drunk anything.

    I seem to weigh in weekly but no set days. I like to see a pound gone and will wait to weigh myself until I think I lost one. Sometimes I'll wait a day or two extra even. I like the anticipation. I then log each time I lose.
