That's entirely personal. I weigh daily BUT I graph it, and only watch the trend; minor blips (which can be 5# or more on a daily swing) don't affect me--I watch the pattern. Some folks find that daily weighing becomes a major obsession, and they (wisely) weigh once a week or so. (for me, those daily blips showing up on a weekly basis meant I didn't 'believe' the scale).
One thing: If you notice your life is being ruled by the scale, DITCH IT, and rely on other ways to measure progess--like measuring or your clothes fitting. ALL the scale offers is ONE NUMBER: it's not god.

I weigh myself every Monday when I wake up, but after I use the restroom. It's important to weigh yourself at the same exact time every time you do so.
That all depends on what you want. Everyone is different. Some people feel better when they dont look at the scale all the time and weigh once a month - some once a week - and some once a day. Personally, I just made a decision to weigh a couple times a week. I made a decision to make friends with the scale - it was getting really difficult to weigh myself and it would get me really down. So, now I'm going the opposite way. So far so good.
Just think about how often you are going to want to keep track of your progress and weigh in that often....
