For me it varies.....I've had times where the scale was absolutely a trigger and I stopped weighing for long periods of time. I even tried a scale that doesn't give you a number! Right now because I am in a better frame of mind I am weighing once a week officially and occasionally in between. When I am making good progress, not bingeing as much, I tend to weigh myself more because I am encouraged by my progress. When I know my eating is out of control I tend to stop weighing because the number does not motivate me to change, rather to continue self sabotaging (makes no sense, I know). Right now I do consider myself to be "dieting" in the sense that I am overweight and trying to lose weight but the changes I am currently making with my eating are the result of my blood sugar values worsening and therefore, I like to think of them as permanent changes, not a temporary "diet".
