An important thing to remember here is that the body can naturally fluctuate by several pounds from day to day.
Some people find that frequent weigh-ins (even as much as daily) helps keep them accountable to themselves for their eating and exercise decisions.
Others find the inevitable increases that natural fluctations and frequent weigh-ins implies to be very frustrating and demotivating.
You may want to think through what your likely reaction to fluctuations will be, and set your weigh-in frequency accordingly.
Also, tracking inches with the tape, rather than pounds with the scale is probably a far more reliable measure of your progress, and less sensitive to fluctuations.
The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
