I have a lot of weight to lose, too, and I step on the scale once a week. I've been thinking about doing it once monthly, though. The problem is that weight is not a measurement of how much fat you've gained or lost. There are a whole slew of factors that influence it. I know for myself I itch to weigh when I feel like I've been doing well. I've been hungry or denying myself. I get the scale out not to track my progress but to affirm the things that I have done. This is the problem- when I get on the scale and it hasn't moved or it's gone up then I feel TERRIBLE. All of that effort I put in derails and becomes "not enough" because of that number.
