    Once a month, otherwise I get crazy and obsessive and if I'm disappointed one day, I can't reason with myself and I binge. So yes, only once a month :)

    1. I weigh my food all the time.

    2. I weigh myself whenever I happen to feel like it. If I do #1, I know from experience that the process will work because it always does, so I rarely feel the need to weigh myself more than maybe a couple of times per month. If I weighed myself any more often than that, the lies of the scale would make me think the process doesn't work and I might be inclined to make a short-term decision based on a bad data point or two.

    Daily in the morning. I wake up, get the dog up, take her to the bathroom, make coffee for me and the hubby, use the restroom, weigh in. THEN I get to enjoy my coffee. I only log here once a week but I log every day on the Libra app. It has the trend but it also tells you rate of loss. It's nice to see the trend going in the right direction. I also like having loss rate so I know it's going in the right direction at the right speed.

    I log daily on an app but hop on and off the scales out of curiosity around tea time and bed time, I always seem to lose 2lb overnight it's quite fascinating.
    I normally only log losses on here and usually only if I see the same number twice within a week.

    I weigh myself no more than once a week to see whether I'm losing weight, since day to day doesn't tell you much. However for MFP purposes, I log my weight daily...for science! ;)

    Once per week. I've just recently restarted MFP. My primary focus is tracking every morsel of food that passes over my lips, increasing my daily water intake to 8-10 glasses per day, and starting to exercise daily. I know from past experiences that if I do those things, my weight will go down so try to not focus on "the number" but instead, focus on choosing healthier options every day.

    I weigh daily and log it in a trending app. Scale fluctuations used to bother me tremendously until I started weighing daily and going by the trend.

    I am a big data geek so I weigh almost daily.

    Every morning before I eat anything. I find it keeps me motivated.

    Twice a day, but only log my Sunday morning weight.

    Whenever I think of it. Usually once a week or less, but I have a small bathroom and there's no open floor space to leave a scale. So I have to go and get it out of the hall closet.

    I’ve been weighing monthly to avoid getting hung up on the numbers. I’m within 5 pounds of my goal now though so will be weighing weekly.

    Daily, first thing after my bathroom break after waking up. I use a trend app to help with the fluctuations.

    I aim for daily, and was doing it daily for a while, but lately mornings have been earlier and more challenging so I only do it when I feel like I have the time. It’s been more like 3x a week. I use a weight trend app as well, it’s been helpful even though I didn’t know I was losing too fast because I can’t math on my own. Lol. I like the “10-day-best” that it shows me, instead of just my most recent weight.

    Daily. Once first thing when I wake up and last thing before I go to bed. I feel fine with fluctations however, when it goes up I don't freak out and know it will go down again in a few days.

    Every 1-3 months, so that I don't get fixated or frustrated. I can tell my body's changing, and if/when I don't feel changes anymore I'll probably weigh myself more regularly, maybe once a week or fortnight to keep myself motivated.
