    I find that when I weigh myself every morning, it really helps me to stay at the weight I want.  If I’ve gone up a pound or two, then I don’t eat as much that day (or I eat healthier).

    @Stephville:  I try not to weigh myself more than once a week.  It usually ends up once every 2 weeks.  Just depends on how I am feeling.  Weighing yourself everyday is setting you up for frustration.  Your weight will fluxuate daily depending on what you eat and how much you pee and if you go number 2.  Not to mention exercise and sweat loss.  I once had a breakdown over a 4lb weight gain brought on by an extra salty dinner.  It was gone in a couple of days but it wasn’t worth the emotional stress.

    I think you have already proven to yourseld, by your behavior when you lost your scale, that weighing daily is not a healthy habit for you.

    @Stephville:  I’m obsessed too. I’m usually fail but after the wedding I’be been slacking but Ibe also been gaining. THAT is why I weigh daily to keep myself in check.

    @Stephville:  I weigh myself irregularly. I haven’t even had a scale until quite recently, but I am on-and-off trying to lose weight, so I thought it would be good motivation. I guess I probably weigh myself about once a week.

    I agree, this needs a poll!

    To answer the question, every morning.

    @Stephville: Nooo not daily, I did that once and it was unhealthy. I never weigh myself as I can tell by my clothes and how I feel.

    I think daily is a bit unhealthy (for me at least) I weigh myself weekly and skip period week as it makes me sad.

    I get weighed by my doctor once a year for my physical. I’m pretty uncomfortable with getting too obsessed with it, as I used to track my weight a lot. We actually don’t even own a scale in the house.

    However, I will say that it’s pretty great to get weighed once a year and being the same weight year after year!

    Whenever I remember to.  The scale is in the bathroom within eye sight of me getting ready in the morning but I’m such a space cadet I forget that its there.

    Never. I am pretty muscular so the number wouldn’t mean much to me. I use the mirror and how clothes fit.
