Weigh weekly or daily?

Monday, April 05, 2010

I'd like some help from Sparkers who weigh weekly - does it help or hinder your progress? And what about daily weighers? Do you feel daily weighing is a help or a hinderance? I'm toying with the idea of NOT weighing every day - any suggestions? ~Lilybelle

    I weigh daily. What if, at the end of the week, I gained 2 pounds? How would that affect my motivation? Better to know that I'm sliding sooner so I can reverse course.

    Your comments are all great - and it proves to me, once again, that the dieting thing is a very "individual" issue and we have to learn to do what is best for us. From your posts I think I'll try Not weighing every day, because I do tend to get a little obsessive about the scales - and I will post weekly. Thanks, good comments! ~Lilybelle

    I like to weigh every day, but I only log the weight on my weigh-in day once a week. My weight will fluctuate daily depending on how much I've exercised, my sodium intake, etc. Best of luck to you deciding what to do! emoticon

    It is a personal thing for whatever works best for you. Before I joined Sparks, I weighed every day and it worked well for me. I lost 10 lbs. in one year. But since I joined Sparks and am loosing more, I have had to go to once or twice a week.

So whatever works best for you is what you want to do.

    I only weigh myself once a week. Our weight can fluctuate daily so if I got on the scales every day and saw a slight gain some days, I'd feel discouraged.

Right now I'm bloated and I keep off the scales when my body is swollen because I know it wouldn't show my right weight.

It's an individual thing, you'll find which way you want to do it and is best for you.

All the best! emoticon emoticon

    For myself, weighing every day would add to the near-obsessing I can take-on in tracking nutrition. So, weekly, I suggest.

    I like to weigh every day as this lets me know to be careful if I am over, before it gets too much out of hand.
