I agree that it's whatever works best for you. When my work had an in-office Weight Watchers meeting, I only weighed in once a week at the official meeting. When that ended, I bought a scale for my home and now way in once a day. For some people daily weigh-ins may be too much, but it works for me because I've learned not to obsess over the number and that my body naturally fluctuates 3-4 lbs most days.

Generally, I weigh in weekly, however, I'm pregnant at the moment and have decided to just go with my weigh ins at the doctor for the time being. But generally I do like having the weekly feedback of how I am doing.
I weigh in weekly just because it helps me know what I've been doing right or wrong throughout that week, and what I have to change for the following week. That being said, I was at a plateau for a few months seeing no change or up and down between a 3-5 pound range and it was extremely frustrating.
I think whatever works best for you is what you should stick with. Maybe try uping weigh ins to once every two weeks and see how that goes, but it's really what you are comfortable with. Do whatever is good for you and keeps your confidence and motivation high!
It's never too late to succeed.

I love seeing the numbers when I've lost weight, but I hate weighing weekly coz I'd be scared to see a small or no loss at all. Who here weighs in once a month? And is it worth the wait? Or should I just leave it at weekly? I understand its just a number but I would love to see that number head downwards :-)
Whatever you do, don't let that evil voice make you give up!
