How often does everyone weigh in?



  • I weigh myself on sat. mornings, after I get up. Sometimes I check my progress on Wed. am if I'm worried about it.

    I weigh on the first of the month ONLY! At the same time...and before I dress, eat, or drink. There are too many fluctuations throughout the month for me to weigh more often. And, it is not about the number for me. It is about how I FEEL! :)

    I weigh myself a few times a day. I probably weigh myself a little too much, but I'm a little obsessed.

    It use to be everyday, however, it made me feel defeated! After a workout, I would weigh more and I would be soo upset!! Now, I try and weigh once a week or every two weeks! I am very close to my goal weight and I try to stress the small stuff :)

    Every day, but Monday is my official day.

    I weigh in when I visit my doctor. Every two months or so. I don't actually own a scale because I get the urge to hop onto it every time I use the bathroom and the numbers feel so insignificant, even if they ARE going down. I know it's the exact same thing, but I just feel better about losing 8-10 lbs in 2 months than I do about losing 1-1.5 lbs a week.

    I weight myself every morning as soon as I wake up but I only record my weekly weight on Saturday morning.

    I try not to focus on the scale, but I weigh-in every Monday morning.

    I actually enjoy weighing twice a day. Once when I wake up to know if I'm gaining or losing, and at the end right before bed, so I'm aware of how much I eat each day.

    I weigh in every day with my food diary notes (I weigh myself each morning when I wake up before I eat anything - to be consistent). Seeing how I eat each day affects my weight the next day really makes a difference to me.

    I watch my calories closely and there are days, probably because of salt, that I gain a couple of pounds and lose them a few days later. If I wasn't weighing myself everyday I would go crazy.

    I weigh every other day but log in Monday morning, after the bathroom and naked. Monday is good for logging as it means I cannot go off the rails over the weekend, so if I slip on Friday or Saturday night the pressure is on to 'redeem' myself Sunday. The casual weigh ins are more about seeing what effect heavy workouts etc have on my weight short term and morning and evening weigh ins inform me about how much my weight can vary. However what matters is the overall direction in which you are heading and to not to worry about the wavering. Also at some point your measurements are going to speak lower than your weight as lean muscle weighs more than fat.

    I weight every morning. Not for everybody for sure.

    I weigh myself every day but I post the difference about every other day once I'm certain the number is consistent.

    My dietician advised me to weigh weekly only, otherwise my food choices would be inconsistent because I'd be reacting to what I saw on the scale each day. After a bit of scoffing, I tried it and it really does work. It keeps me from obsessing, and the one day a week is usually a pretty good day!

    Every 5 weeks, on Saturday mornings before I eat or drink anything :)

    Now that I'm losing I'm tempted to weigh in more but I feel like it will make me obsess over every little pound instead of living life and focusing on being healthier, which is the whole point. Plus it's less about the number on the scale, more about inches, how your clothes fit & the way you look/feel.

    That's a big, steaming pile of wisdom right there.

    I weigh myself a lot each day. I only count weight in mornings and after a couple of days of same weight.

    I weigh myself every couple of days, always first thing in the morning, but I don't record it unless I'm down a pound. That's because I tend to retain fluid and I see no reason to record a "failure" when my body is consistently smaller and more fit and my clothes are looser. I actually find it really interesting how much my weight fluctuates from day to day, but I know that would make a lot of other people crazy. :smile:
  • I get on the scale every morning. Whether or not I register mentally what it says is another thing. I really am not functional some days before coffee, but afterwards I am too busy in my day to go weigh myself in.
