If you are weighing more than once a day, that moves into obsession territory. Once a day, on a regular basis, similar circumstances each time, that is scientific measurement. If weighing every day makes you obsess, do not do it. If it helps you focus, it is a great idea.

Absolutely. Face the music every day or your brain will begin to play tricks on you. You can enter into sharky waters quickly without any strong data points. I believe in letting the data points speak for themselves. They tell no lies without a hint of imaginary thinking that all is fine and well. I bought into 'the scales are not important' dieting dogma about 5 years ago. That was the biggest lie of all.
That's only true for someone who's never ever had a problem with food in their entire lifetime. They need to be coached to eat because they forget about eating. For those who've struggled with obesity...the scales are important with the daily data point.
