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.

No, I just get on the scale only on every Thursday of the months.

If you go by the way side on an eating bing, just get up and start again. I always say I will be on a diet for the rest of my life because I love food. But since Spark People I can eat the right foods and not get out of control. Keep up the good work no matter what people say about you. Love yourself. Do it for yourself and no one else. This keep me going.

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 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

1/20/11 10:23 P

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.

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

4-5 times a week.

Sometimes all you need is twenty seconds of insane courage. Just twenty seconds of embarrassing bravery.

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