Default How often do you weigh?

I have been reading the book Conquer Your Food Addiction (great read) and it says to weigh twice a day, morning and night. Does anyone else weigh twice a day? I have never been a fan of weighing at night and I am having a hard time with this!

I weigh every morning, and sometimes when I get home from work out of curiosity - it's usually lower when I get home from work.

Yah I do it, I like it see the numbers and how my weigh flucuates throughout the day. Helps me not panic too much if the scale is up. Usually as a result of salt intake, water etc.

I weigh myself once a day, in the morning after I pee and without any clothes on. I think that is the most accurate!

I weigh once in the morning and right before bed - mostly so I don't get any nasty scale suprises in the morning. It helps me see a pattern to the day. I know that I always weigh about 2 pounds more at night, and I'll lose it by morning (unless I get too much sodium). And sometimes it's nice to see a lower-than-expected number at night and know that my morning number might show a loss - I only count my morning weigh-ins.

Cool

I always thought everyone was against this, especially weight loss professionals. Most people say it is bad to weigh everyday, let alone twice a day everyday.

HOWEVER, I do weigh myself once or twice a day. I always felt guilty about it, but I do it anyways. It is very motivational for me and lets me see my progress immediately. I always find myself checking the next day to make sure I'm still there before I log it.

I weigh 2x a day and have found I'm always 2 lbs almost on the nose heavier at night than I will be the next morning. Even though my weight fluctuates, there are no surprises Weighing daily keeps me focused and there is no burying my nose in the sand. You can't hide from the # on the scale!

I started 2 1/2 months ago and only weighed myself once a month, I didn't want to be disappointed. Now I weigh myself every morning, after i piddle and without clothes, then I like to weigh myself just before bed, after I piddle. Although, before I started doing this I had to set my mind straight to the fact that my weight would fluctuate day to day and that was OK. Once my mind was set I bought a scale. My scale does BMI, body fat % and % of H2O, I do this 3-4 time a week.

Oh sometimes I weigh myself after I put on my clothes, then I know how much the clothes weigh.

Also somewhere on 3F chicks there was a woman who weighed herself everyday and found a pattern, so I am very excited to see if my weight loss has a pattern.

Good luck, just keep moving . . .

I weight at least once in the morning and once before bed. I only record the morning weight, though.

I usually only weigh myself in the morning. While I'm usually 2 pounds heavier at night than in the morning, sometimes that weight stays on in the morning or goes up, which can be discouraging. So, mornings only work better for me. I weigh in every morning unless I'm out of town and away from my scale.

I weigh all day long. I have a problem. If I walk in to the kitchen to eat something I shouldnt, I will sometimes walk right through to the laundry room and weigh myself instead.
