When I’m feeling great, I’ll do it every morning for positive reinforcement, when I know I’m not doing well, I stick with once a week!

OK, I hope I don’t sound crazy but more than once a day!  I was trying to see how much my weight fluctuated, and I also have some health issues…now that I have had my FINAL dress fitting, I’m making sure to closely maintain my weight…YAY for finally being able to eat sweets again!

I won’t let myself buy a scale. When I did have one I got super obsessed with the number and would weigh myself several times a day, so now I get weighed once a year by my doctor. Is that crazy?

I do it about every other day when I’m at the gym. I used to do it every day when I was there but I started to worry about it more than being healthy!

I try to keep it to once a week, but it ends up being once every day or two.

I used to keep it to once a week until recently my weight has been fluctuating like crazy. I’m talking four pounds from one morning to the next. So, it has been every day/every other trying to keep tabs on what it really is

I have never owned a scale or lived in a house with a scale because I am worried that if I did I would weight myself multiple times a day.  The only time I weigh myself now is at the gym, because I am already doing something good for myself when I am there.  But honeslty, I gained some weight this year, and every time I weight myself now it just gets me down because nothing I do makes that weight go away, so I just don’t weigh myself much at all anymore……

I am considering purchasing a good, accurate at home scale to see if daily weighing (mornings before showers!) will help me figure out how to shed these few pounds.  figure i can always trash it if i get neurotic….

I, too, used to do it every day. Now, umm every few weeks or so. I don’t want to know unless I am actively trying to lose weight.

I don’t own a scale, so I only weigh myself at the gym when my PT asks me to.  I’ve always thought that scales give women a warped self-perception, so I’ve mostly avoided them.

I don’t own a scale so I only weigh myself once every few months. Now that I think about it, I should probably do it more often because my weight does fluctuate.

i used to weigh myself about once a week but i totally understand what katrinab said about being obsessed with the numbers.. now i just focus on how clothes look/feel and i can usual guesstimate my weight but more importantly its about feeling healthy

I don’t weigh myself often– maybe once every couple of weeks.. It goes up and down by a couple of pounds depending of whether I just ate or not.  I try to gauge my weight by how my clothes feel.. 🙂
