I weigh myself only once a week, if that. If I start to weigh myself more than that, I become very neurotic and obsessed about it. And I don't need that!!!

weigh in

I use to weigh in once a week or daily....but I am trying something new! I bought my self a new dress for a trip we are planning in late OCT! It's my newest keep seeing how it looks as I lose weight. My gym says to get a pair of old jeans out and go by those in stead of the scale. They say the scale can move up or down depending on water, exercise and so on. If you are like me and see a increase you tend to say why did i work so hard for this? I don't ask that any dress says I look better! :)

3:08. Do you have anger issues? Lighten up and move on if you see something that has been on here before. Just because it is here doesn't mean you have to comment on it.

Too many times a day. I weigh myself in the morning as soon as i wake up, and then again in the evening before i go to bed. I do this everyday. Its not really too good since i get angry at myself for not see less a number on the scale or not maintaining the same day to day. I have learned to relax and not worry so much about the numbers on the scale, however i still weigh myself everyday.

After the gym! I like to see the progress I just did even if it's a little.

ha ha 4:39. I do the same thing. Can't stand not knowing what the news is. I find that if I'm within a lb of what I was in the morning, I will not have gained any weight. If I weigh the same as in the morning, then there is a 50:50 chance that I will get to a new number on the morrow. It's a game, and it's a pretty good motivator when the number is too high at night, I know I will be doing extra work out the next day and behave myself. Different strokes for different folks.

I read somewhere that when you are trying to lose weight you should weigh yourselves one a week. And when you are trying to maintain it is every two days.
THe difference is when you are dieting it can be discouraging to weigh yourself everyday and you don't see results. Doing it once a week you are more likely to see them. When you are trying to mainain, it is easier to catch it right a way so you don't get back to where you started from.

I do find this has worked for me... but it might not for everyone.

I dont keep a scale at home but I weigh myself at the gym. In the winter that was 5-6 days a week but now that it is nice out and my workouts are not all in the gym it is 3-4 days a week.

I find that I fluctuated 3 lbs dpending on time of day/week/month so if i weighed myself only once a week i would get frustrated if one week I was on the low end of my fluctuation and then next week i was on the high end. Better for me to keep closer track.

2-3 times a day - I feel like I need to know since I can fluctuate like 3 lbs in a day - so what is the trend ?
I know that might seem like a lot, but it helps me to be good, like checking my heartrate while running or whatever... neurotic ? - not for me.

Like many of you, I weigh-in once a week, Monday morning, naked. (haha-every little bit helps.) I record the weight on my graph/chart. Okay, having said that... then I weigh myself again maybe two more times during the week (naked first thing in the am, or after exercising), sort of an unofficial check. I actually tend to weigh the least on Tues or Weds. (prob due to dinner out on the weekend, salty stuff, whatever!!!) Neurotic? maybe. I guess I just feel like I am one fried calamari appetizer from falling off the wagon, and I need the constant reassurance that I'm still on the right track.
