Εvery day. Sometimes, every time I go to the bathroom. It's obsessive alright, but I don't let it get to me, so I don't mind. I like to see the fluctuations. I've tried weighing once a week, but that's when I really got obsessive. I just can't stay away from the scale. Since I'm desensitized to it, so to speak, it's fine.

My official weigh ins are every other Friday. Depending on how on track I'm staying, I tend to weigh myself every few mornings because I'm excited to see how doing well yesterday did. SO it varies. Some weeks when I get off track and feel bloated I don't even step on it because I'll get discouraged at a flimsy gain. I always weigh myself in the morning after using the bathroom before I eat, drink or shower.

I find it helps to keep my scale in my bathroom cabinet to keep myself from weighing obsessively.

First thing every morning. I record it every day in MFP and then 'officially' once a week in my diary. It's not a big deal for me.

I weigh myself everyday, but like most people I have an official weigh-in day, Wednesdays.

I weigh every morning and record every change in FitDay.

While my balance scale was expensive, it is very consistent. I believe it and I don't obsess. I definitely recommend the balance scale if you care to spend the money. I got mine at Amazon and I think it was about $170 with shipping.

I also weigh in first thing every morning, after I go to the bathroom and before breakfast. Thursday is the "official" day. Sometimes... if I have a particularly large BM, I will check the scale again

I bought a digital scale yesterday. It is basically consistent with our dial scale but I like seeing a definite number rather than trying to guess if it's on 22 23 or 24.

Every morning and then I record that weight in MFP. I like to do that. Not sure why, but it makes me feel better and on track everyday.

Thank you for all of the suggestions!

I think I'm probably going to bump up from once a month to once a week just to be safe. I still feel like for me personally, every day would lead me back on that path of becoming obsessed with my weight. And I'm not confident in my numbers yet that I can say I won't feel disappointment, even if I know logically it's just a food difference.

I just wanted to apologize for all the 3 in my last post. What I'm about to say is completely true. My cat likes to talk on the internet. She's posted many times before, but I normally see it and delete it. This time I was posting a quick reply and because of all the times she hit enter, I didn't see it. I'm sorry.

I weigh myself every day in the morning in the buff before I have breakfast. It is a daily reminder to keep on track. As soon as my weight goes down I count it as a loss. Weight fluctuates from day to day so I don't worry if my weight bounces back up a few pounds. I just focus on long term loss.

The bottom line is you have to find out what works best for you and keeps you motivated instead of discouraged!

Marniadec, that's hilarious! When I saw your post, I figured it was cat.

chellez, I'm a once a week weigher too. Same day, same time, same clothes (or lack thereof).

I definitely think lack thereof is best. A girl at my gym was telling me how she weighs in with clothes on and after she eats and it sounded like a basis for a math equation I'm not interested in! I'd rather just wake up, get on, get off and get it over with.

I weigh myself every morning after I wake up, after I use the bathroom and before I get dressed for the day. The little fluctuations are frustrating, but I try really hard not to let them bother me. I think I would fall off plan very quickly if I weighed once a week or less often, so this works best for me.
