Every day. Then I don't freak on the days I'm higher...because I realize how much it fluctuates.

Works for me!

Exactly my approach I just laugh when it says I gained 4 lbs overnight (or lost them) because I know that's just water and circumstances (like the uneven floor in my BR).

I weigh myself everyday because I like to see it go down. I know it changes by the day though so if it's up rather than down, I just hope to see a lower number the next day. I used to weigh everyday and then take the average for the week but I haven't done that in a while.

It seems to me that "they" use to say to weigh yourself less frequently and now "they " say that you should weight yourself daily so that you don't let things get too out of control before reining yourself back in. I usually do weight myself daily but like someone else said, sometimes I avoid the scale if I know it will be up that day from my poor dining habits the day or so before.

Our scale in the basement by the elliptical, so when I use the elliptical, I weigh myself. However, once a week I add it to my exercise tracker. The days in between are a guide, but I do not worry about them.

I'm going to make this a sticky in the FAQ since it has to be one of the most frequently asked questions on the board!

I weigh myself everyday. I know what pair of jeans will make that weight higher and which will make it lower, so everyone Monday, I put on the same pair of jeans and that is my official weight. I like to weigh in the morning and at night, too, just to see how much "weight" I put on in the course of the day. "It's an obsession...It's my obsession..what do you want me to do ..." do you remember that song from the 1980's? LOL! I always sing that part to myself when I'm on the scale. I'm such a crack!

I usually weigh myself once a week...Sunday. But I am trying to challenge myself and not weigh for two weeks or a month (if I have enough will power).

every other day...just to keep tabs. Sometimes, when I am not sure if something I ate agrees with me SBD wise, I do every day.
