    I only step on a scale when I go to the doctors and even then I get weighed backwards. 

    I think it’s a really bad sign that you were freaking out over not being able to weigh yourself for a few days.  Weight can fluctate up to at least 5 lbs in the course of a day and has no bearing on what you actually look like.

    I do it once a week. Monthly would drive me crazy!

    I haven’t weighed myself in over a year. The last time I was at the doctor (a month ago), I weighed 150..but I don’t even keep a scale in my house. I suffered from ED when I was younger, and I obsessively weighed myself 20+ times daily, so I don’t even want to give in to that again. I’m happier not knowing.

    I do it every single morning before getting dressed. I know that the numbers on the scale do not mean much, BUT– I would rather 4-5 pounds sneak up on me as opposed to  10 or 15 without me really being able to place a finger on it. If I know that it is creeping up, I scale back to where I like for it to be.

    No.  I do it 2-3 times a week – daily would make me a little crazy.  

    (Actually there was a time when I underate and overexercised and weighed myself daily and it DID make me a little crazy… our scale showed the tenth place of the number, like 120.4 or whatever, and I was a little obsessed with seeing that tenth place go down EVERY day.  That part of the scale display is broken now so I can only see integers, which is probably a good thing!)

    I got out of the habit of weighing myself every day and gained back about 8 pounds. Now I’m back to weighing myself daily. It helps me keep motivated to maintaining my weight goals.

    I go through stages when I do.  I haven’t step on the scales for probably about 6 months now though.  I tend to use a pair of work trousers that fit perfectly when I’m the weight I like but very quickly get too tight if I start putting it on as a guide.

    I don’t weigh, ever. Period. When I go to the doctor, I step on the scale backwards and ask them not to state my weight out loud. Sometimes, I even refuse to get weighed if it’s not pertinent to the reason I’m visiting. Seems extreme, but I struggled with an eating disorder for a few years and weighing is just something that is incredibly triggering for me (still) and I prefer to not know my weight. I haven’t weighed or been aware of my weight in about two years. 

    My mother weighed herself every day when I was little, so I started the same habit when I was about eight years old. Then, during my eating disorder, I weighed multiple times a day. Now, never. My mom still weighs every day, as does my sister and most of my friends. My partner weighs about once a week at her moms house (we don’t have a scale).

    I weigh myself weekly but only because I’m doing WW and I’m supposed to track my weight/progress every week.

    Yup but the numbers mean nothing to me.  People are suggested not to because if they see something they aren’t happy about then they are more likely going to be sad and eat like cake and icecream which will just throw them off more.
