I'm so compulsive about weighing myself (at least 3-4 times per day) that I finally got rid of my scale at home. Now, I weigh-in once a week, using a WW scale at work.

I really just ignore my scale, until the once a week weigh in. I have the kind of personality that will let me get obsessed very quickly if I let it, so I just don't let myself do it. I'd also rather see marked improvement than little increments here and there.

Noway. Once a week on Friday. I do not want to depress myself. I want to feel good about what I am doing - I am changing my life style - exercising, eating right and enjoying life. Way to go - LittleBilly1 !
Kim, why do you have 3 scales? No wonder you weigh yourself 7 times a day! Probably once for every time you see one... I don't know how you're coping. when you weigh yourself so frequently the numbers really seem to freeze up and refuse to budge...
I stopped keeping a scale - I was also weighing myself 7 - 10 times a day. Decided I couldn't be trusted with it. Now I weigh myself when I visit a friend/family member who keeps a scale out.. About twice a month. This may drive you nuts at first, but might be better for the headspace over time.
i weigh myself maybe once a week. i generally go by the way i look and feel rather than by the scale. i feel if i concentrate too much on the scale, i will feel disappointed and discouraged that i don't weigh as much less as i think i should.

I went from weighing once a week to twice a week to daily. I was obsessing. I now weigh in once a week I'm at a stage in which I am trying to live my life, and judge not by a number - but how I feel. I still have a number goal, but it's not realistic to obsess - that is part of the diet mentality.

I don't bother, my scale is broken & stuck on 280lbs. Been broken for over 4 months & I'm too cheap to replace it. My clothes are fitting better the more i work out but that scale just won't go below 279-280. Sheesh! ! !
I am I weigh in the morning right when I wake up and anytime I use that bathroom. Which is in my bedroom...which means I am up there when I change go to bed have to run and get something. All the time. Sometimes I weigh twice a day other times it is ALOT more. To make it worse I am a stay at home mom, so I am home more than the normal person. I have asked my husband to hide the scale from me and take it out only on fridays. He hasn't done that yet.
ya i basically weigh myself every day on 2 different scales, one digital one not......and i use the digital scale as my "true" weight. And i try not to let what i see get to me until sunday which is my true weigh-in day.
Kim, I'm right there with you. I always weigh in the AM after urinating and before eating/drinking anything. Then I find it interesting to see the before and after for workouts, eating, sleeping--just for my info--I know it's mostly water/food weight when the before/after weights are so differet, but it helps me to understand what's going on when I put something in my mouth and how much water I'm losing and should be drinking when I work out.
I guess I could say I'm compulsive with the scale. I weigh-in every morning. I actually have a routine that I follow. I make sure the scale is in the exact same spot on the bathroom floor before I step on it. And that isn't until I've had one cup of coffee and I've used the bathroom. It's usually the same time - 6 A.M. too.
My dog is not my whole life but she makes my life whole.
I weigh in every day just to make sure that I am going in the right direction but I only record the result once a week. I try not to be too impressed by the daily results as they can be deceiving.

I wasn't in fact I use to avoid scales now that I have actually been losing pounds I weigh daily afraid they are going to be back I guess. How do you break this fear? I have yo yo-d for years and I don't want to go back this time.
Me too - used to be 2 to 3 times per day. Now sometimes I actually don't weigh myself on a day.

I too am a compulsive weigher! I get on the scale every morning! I would like to say that I don't let it bother me when I have either not lost or gained, but it's kind of frustrating. I am a results person and if I don't see the results, I tend to give up!
Hi! My name is Kimberly(Kim), and they say the first step to helping yourself through a problem is to admit that you have one. I'm no longer in denial..I am a compulsive weigher.
Ok, I have 3 different scales in my house. I have my "real" scale which will give you a "point 1" reading if it has to. It tells, weight, body fat, bone density, water %, and BMI..everything..This is the scale I record all my weights by.
Not only do I have 3 different scales, I weigh myself like 7 times a day! My real weight that I record on my "real scale," is the one I take when I wake up before I've eaten anything. So, it is an accurate measurement, I just drive myself insane weighing afterwards. And DON'T let it be a week where I've GAINED weight. All HELL breaks loose! I have to weigh myself before I eat, after I eat, before I workout, after I workout..It's ridiculous, really, but it's the truth.
