Does anyone else weigh themselves EVERY morning?
NO ! Once a month. Like to see an impressive number. As in 2 lbs, hopefully down.0
for the last 3 months after I gained some pounds I started weighing every morning....and also....:-) at night before I go to bed. I don't log..... I weigh at night only to prepare me for the numbers i'll see in the morning0
Yup! I keep track in a personal log but don't update MFP unless it's a 1-2+lb drop, though.
Glad to see so many other "yes" answers here as opposed to the complaints about how horrible a habit they think it is.0
yes I weigh every morning unless I am not at home. I only track my losses though. I know there are fluctuations and I only want to see my downward progress. I do track my food every day though and keep a separate spread sheet showing how good I am at keeping to my calorie goal.0
I know that I shouldn't but I can't help but weigh myself every morning.0
Yep. I record it on the calendar every day, only input it here if I've lost weight.
And once a week, usually on Saturday, I record it on my doctor's online graph so they can track my progress.
(Sometimes I'll check in mid-week when I've lost, but usually once a week.)
As long as I can look back a week, or two, or a month, and see that I'm losing weight I'm OK.0
Yes I do. It's habit.0
Yes, I do every night. I keep a 12 month calender by the scale.0
I weigh every morning first thing and at night before bed. And sometimes in between! I make a note of the reading on my ipad. I find that helps me not to worry as I can look back and see 'ah, I was a couple of pounds up on my official reading by Wednesday last week and had still lost by Saturday' etc.
It does help to keep me on track - if I see a 'gain' during the week, I work hard to make sure it's a loss by Saturday. If it's going down, I keep going to get a bigger loss by Saturday. Saturday is my official tracking day, on here and on Weight Watchers. I love looking at my WW graph!0
every morning weigher here0
Once a week is enough for me as it helps to modify my cals intake becasue the less i weight the less calories i need. Unless you are seriously weight lifting then that is a whole other topic0
I think of my weight loss journey as an experiment haha. I weigh in every morning and then take the average at the end of the week. I like seeing the trends. As long as the trend is downward I don't let the little fluctuations get to me. I also take body measurements every week because sometimes when I don't lose weight, I lose inches!0
I can't help it!! Lol.
Why would you want to?
I do it every morning, too.0
I do, but I only log it when I have weighed in at below the next lb down.
So a few days ago I weighed 10 stone 12. The last couple of days I've weighed 10 stone 11.6/2. I will log my weight on MFP when it's exactly 10 stone 11 or lower.
I know the overall trend is downwards so I don't worry if one morning my weight is slightly up. I just keep going and wait for it to go down again.0
I do it everyday. I'm more or less in maintenance now except for a few vanity pounds. It keeps me on track but I just returned from a month long vaca with no scale and eating whatever I wanted (Greece). I had lots of fish and fava dip and eggplant and octopus and baklava! I swam everyday but that was about it except for some walking.
Much to my delight-I weighed the same upon my return.
It gave me a lot of confidence in myself going forward because I now feel I can trust my appetite and feelings of fullness to keep me in check!0
