my advice is dont concentrate on a number.. keep your goal in mind always, but go by how you feel . how your clothes fit. dont be a slave to a number on a scale.. you could be losing inches and not even know it because your obsessing about a number. I know I have done the same thing.. how do you feel? do you have more energy? are you eating healthy foods? are your clothes loose? those are the important things to determine how your doing.

as someone that has lost alot of weight I speak from experience.. keep going you will get there!

I dont weigh myself but only because my scale is broken. I've notived clothes is loose though. I don't think a number is important. Just as long as you know what you're doing, you should know where you stand.

Whenever I have gone for periods of time without weighing myself it was because I wanted to be in denial about my weight. I weigh myself every day now and it helps me a lot to see when I have had good days and bad days. I think the only people who should not weigh themselves are those who have had eating disorders and got consumed by the scale.

I was obsessed with the scale when I first started. Now I don't weigh myself hardly at all. I focus on how I feel.
I think the scale can be both a friend and a foe. It's helpful to keep you in check while you're in maintenance mode. However, if you're losing weight and the scale goes up instead of down, it can feel very defeating. And then all the bad thoughts come out like "Well, I'm not losing weight, what's the point?" or "I've failed and I might as well give up."
Just pay attention to your reaction to your weigh-ins and go from there. The scale works for some but not for others.

I"m an "everyday-er"

This is really such a personal/individual preference thing. Here's my thinking, if you've lost all the weight you want, then NOT stepping on the scale and going by "how you feel" (as so many have offered) works. However, if you're trying to lose, how can you possibly know from week to week whether or not you are accomplishing anything especially since most of us who have a lot to lose don't "look" or "feel" any thinner weekly? For me, I have to know how I'm doing daily or else I'll tell myself "oh, that cookie won't be a problem, I "feel" like I"m losing. I've lost 20 lbs so far and although my clothes fit looser, no one else has noticed it (or at least their not saying) So, all that to say, it really depends on how you lose and whether or not you can honestly gauge your own body.

I like to weigh myself just so I don't break down crying when I go to the doctor's and find out I am overweight! I also have the opposite of body dismorphic disorder. I always view myself as skinnier than I am so I can never go by how I look in the mirror because I always think I look great. But the scale never lies!

I used to avoid the scale thinking I would get fixated on the number, but mainly I was in denial. No way could I stay on track without weighing myself regularly.
