How often do we weigh ourselves?

    Whichever works best for you. However do know that weighing yourself everyday could affect your motivation. Water weight and other factors could skew your results. I say every 1-2 weeks. If you have a scale that calculates it into a graph, go for it.

    Everyday... first thing in the morning nude, after using the restroom.

    This and the last thing before I go to bed at night, The night/morning fluctuations are absolutely amazing and never cease to make me wonder what is going on. Then I absolutely forget it for the rest of the day.

    Daily, first thing, without fail. I got into loosing weight because my blood pressure was up. Only times I've been in control of weight in past was when I did careful monitoring. I also take my blood pressure every morning, just after putting the coffee on, without fail. I now use the Aria wifi scale. I track my steps with FitBit. Log my blood pressure on FitBit. I have MFP, FitBit, Microsoft Health Vault, TrendWeight all linked. I also use Google Spreadsheets and TicTrac. See the December 17, 2013 entry on my blog to see how I pull it all together:

    Most days but I'm not regligious about it. Then I put them into a pretty chart and pay attention to the trend lines not the daily variations.

    Maybe once every few months. But I should.

    Daily. First thing after emptying my bladder. Daily means you get the small ups and downs (noise) and have a chance to average those out (at least mentally if not in a spreadsheet). If you weigh only weekly, you're stuck with whatever number you read until the next week. If you can do that and not go crazy for that week when it goes the wrong way a little bit, you're stronger than I am.

    I personally weigh myself every morning... and record it every Friday...

    I've been losing an average of 1.5kg (3lbs) a week... I should see some movement by Wednesday... If not I increase my Cardiovascular exercises.... (walk and/or stationary bike) by 1 hour... but if i don't lose it... by Friday... I forget it and start over... trying to reach 1.5kg.. at my regular route.

    Every 6 weeks or so. I don't own a scale so I stop by my doctor's office to use their BMI machine.

    I weigh myself 1 - 4 times a week. Sometimes I do it every day, other days I forget/don't care/ am too tired to try XD.

    I get up at around 5 AM and walk down to my local gym to work out a few times a week, so on those days I really don't care what my weight is......
