Usually I only weigh in once a week. But sometimes I get curious and jump on the scale during the middle of the week. I don't like to weigh everyday because my weight fluctuates so much I get depressed if it goes up one day.

I don't think I could stand the pressure of a daily weigh in.

Unfortunately, yes I do. I know they say not to, but it gets me conscious of my choices from the moment I wake up.

I personally am addicted to the scale...so I have to force myself to stay away...twice a week is what I have decided to allow myself to weigh in.

Every day. I don't think its a good idea. Saturday is my weigh day so I only record the weight for that day but I do weigh myself every day of the week. Last saturday I had lost a pound and this morning the scale showed I've gained 2 lbs emoticon

once a week...and someone else weighs me and marks it down. I have her check my Spark page to make sure I'm staying straight with what I'm reporting. I know myself...I need accountability.

If I step on the scale during the week and it shows a loss, I tend to feel like I can cheat "just a teeny bit" and not get hurt.

If I step on the scale during the week and it shows a gain, I get frustrated and start to doubt myself.
The scales are fickle from one day to the next...and I need to SEE my hard work has paid off at the end of a week. But we ARE all different...there's no right or wrong here.

Does the Wii Fit count? Then, yes. Otherwise I haven't been a scale in weeks.

I usually get on the scale 3-4 times per week on average. I take into account that i will gain water weight every once in a while and try not to panic too much when i see it fluctuate within a couple of days.

yes..i know you're not supposed to, but if i'm "up", i try extra hard to stay on track...however, i know "up" days doesn't mean that positive things aren't happinging still...

no once a week, that way if I gained a lb. or 2 I don't get discouraged, and if it is good news all the better! emoticon

faithfully--kind of obsessive to make sure that I don't gain too much, but I also measure once a month
