General chatter - How often do you update your ticker?

So I have been trying to figure out the best way to keep my ticker updated... to best reflect my weight loss...

Right now I weigh myself daily (I am obsessed, but I can deal with that, it will likely taper off in a month or so)

But I am updating my ticker weekly with whatever my weekly loss is.

What do you do?

Weekly here. Up or down, it is always accurate from Sunday

As soon as my scale numbers change or something new happens. :) I typically weigh myself once a week, but I haven't been moving much so I do it whenever. I never move my weight score backwards, only forwards!

I moved mine backwards for the first time today after putting it off all summer. :(

I update weekly on the night of my official weigh-in, whether I want to or not. :lol: Well, except for the last chart I have going which only gets the first weigh-in of the month. ;)

I'm so anxious to work on making it go down again. :dizzy:

thanks for the input everyone... I think I might stick to weekly for now... and then see how I feel.

I overthink things sometimes and if the 'right' way to do something isn't clear it's like I want instructions LOL

I also update every week on my weigh in day. This past Wednesday I had to move it back up a pound and it sucked but watching the ticker get closer and closer to goal is a huge motivator for me, so I gotta be honest with myself and 'earn' it or it really bothers me.

I update it weekly on Tuesday at 4:30 pm. Always the same time and wearing the same clothes (i.e. only undergarments to minimize inaccurate readings).

I weight myself everyday (several times, to be honest) because I'm obsessed with it, but I don't change my ticker because I know it goes up and down a lot in the day.
