hi all - hope you are all well :)

Just a quick question to see how often everyone weighs them selves?

    I do it everyday. Sounds crazy, but it helps me keep accountability. I weight myself before and after my workouts, then I log it on to my calendar to keep track of my weight fluctuation trends. It kind of helps me predict if I'll lose weight that week or stay stagnite. It's overkill, I know. But I'm trying to lose weight for my wedding in August, so I'm really OCD about keeping track.

    I generally track my weight once a week. First thing in the morning, same day every week. That's what I record here.

    However, I usually will step on the scale twice a day. Once in the morning and once before bed. For now I just find it interesting to see the difference in the day, and to see the daily fluctuations day to day.

    I like to weigh in daily, but we've been out of town since early Sunday morning and I won't get a chance till Wednesday morning. I'm a bit afraid of the upcoming Weds. weigh in - not like I'm *scared* just I know that because of the constant eating out and lack of exercise the past few days, there's going to show a gain and I wonder how much "damage" will be done - and how long it will take to UNdo it. But part of weighing daily is understanding the fluctuations and revealing the overall downward trend so it must be faced!

    Every day. I know a lot of people find it stressful, but I like seeing the trends and just get more determined when the scale doesn't budge for a while.

    Yup

    And chart it so you can back out and look at the big picture when you need to.

    I agree. The scale causes too much anxiety. I may weigh in once a month just for curiosity.

    Once every morning, after shower (i.e. naked), before breakfast. To each his or her own, but I have never understood why more information is bad, that ignorance from not weighing frequently is some kind of weight loss bliss. In fact, you need to learn just how much your body weight will fluctuate, even when you're being good.

    Every morning between the bathroom and the shower. Every now and then I will weigh just before bed for curiosity's sake.
