I weigh myself a few times a week, and sometimes every day. I like to use the scale to keep myself on track. I always weigh at about the same time of day though. In the morning right after I've gone to the restroom.

I weigh in more than I should also. Usually first thing most every morning. Logged other measurements over the weekend. Hopefully they will help me to see more progress. How often do you check your measurements?

I weigh more often than I should. I am constantly getting on the scale at different times of day. I try not to let the number dictate too much, since I know there are so many factors that can play with it.

I tend to use my clothes as judge of my success, my 16's I wear to work are starting to get lose. (just realized that clothing sizes could be whole separate thread lol)

I weigh in once a week. There are just too many fluctuations from day to day and I know I get discouraged easily enough without that.

I am trying to weigh once a week. In the past, I have weighed daily or every couple of days. For me, it can be very discouraging to not see a loss or even a pound on the plus side from water accumulation.

Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; He will never let the righteous fall. Psalm 55:22

I totally got rid of my bathroom scale at home. It was driving me crazy and I let it affect my mood. I used to weigh in once a week over at my sister's house. Now that she's moved, I talked to the naturopath in office across the hall from my office and she's agreed to let me sneak in and use the scale once a week. emoticon This way, as long as I am following my meal plan, I only see the general trend of where my weight is going, and not the daily fluctuations due to water, salt, or one bad day, etc. If I go up one week, it just makes me determined to work harder the next week. Much better for my overall attitude and sanity!

Hi GREENCHILEGIRL!

It's important to see if you are seeing results, but you want to be sure that you are able to not obsess knowing that there are regular fluctuations throughout the day and the week that we really can't control.

I usually weigh in once or twice a week.
And I usually take my measurements every few months.

Since I have just begun this journey (again!) I am debating on how often I should weigh myself? Just curious what others are doing? emoticon
