Weigh in

How often do you weigh in?

    Once a week, sometimes I may check it midweek if I've been eating too much but only post my weekly weight

    I lose the most consistently when I weigh myself every day. Sometimes I don’t weigh but once a week, or once a month even. It depends on how closely I’m monitoring what I’m doing.

    I was super sick a couple weeks ago and I ate as close to maintenance as I could because I was not trying to add stress to my body. I’m feeling better so I’m trying to get back on track with my deficit and my weigh ins.

    Once a week after my morning walk, nekkid, and then log the average on here at the end of the month.

    Once a week on Monday. Weighing more often is a waste.

    Officially, once a week, nekkid but first thing in the morning before anything else... well, between using the toilet and the shower. I feel it's more consistent that way. 😁

    When I know Ive gained weight never! When I'm losing I do every day and when I'm at my right weight unless I get to comfortable....

    Sometimes every day, sometimes once a week, other times not for 10 days! However, I do find that I stay on track with my meal plans better when I weigh in more frequently. And also that when I don't want to weigh in that it's a good indication that I have over-indulged in something and want to avoid stepping on that scale.

    I think it's a matter of figuring out what works best for you. With rare exceptions I weigh myself once per week. I have been down this road before and I know that my mind cannot handle the normal daily fluctuations that occur throughout the week.

    Daily, every morning naked after loo. This way I gained a valuable understanding of how weight fluctuates throughout the week. For example, before home office my weight would reach a low on Monday morning and climb slowly until Saturday morning, then go down again. Bit of water weight from sitting in an office I suppose. I mostly sit cross-legged or 'odd' at home and this doesn't really happen.

    Honestly weighing kinda excessively right now.

    When i wake up, which is before work

    After work when i get home.

    And before bed.

    Just enjoying seeing how my weight fluctuates throughout the day/week. I do not let the small changes up or down effect me too much.

    Daily. I like having tons of data points to get a better understanding of how factors such as sleep, water intake, sodium consumption affect my weight over time

    Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday and I take the average as my weight. When I'm losing weight I typically eat in a deficit during the week and maintenance on the weekends so I don't touch the scale on Monday since I know my weight will be up due to water from consuming more calories and more digestive waste so it's not a particularly meaningful data point for myself.

    Also a Monday weigher and only do once a week. Since weight will fluctuate often through the week or even the day I find that once a week is sufficient enough to track my progress.
