I always weigh in once a week, but on occasion I've weighed in sooner. I usually regret it though. My weigh fluctuates too much and I think I'm losing/gaining more weight than I am.

About a year ago I used to jump on the scale after every work-out to see if I was losing weigh. Sometimes it showed a gain because I drank so much water while I exercised.

you are not alone

In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose
"If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired."
-General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian

This is an obsession many of us share.
I even went to far as to put the scale on a high shelf in the garage for a month! I called it "time out"
When you're a slow loser, the scale can be your enemy. Non-scale changes can be felt or seen and the scale just sticks at the same number.emoticonemoticon

No you're not weird and definitely not alone. I'm addicted to the scale (not really the tape measure), but I've gotten into the habit of weighing myself every morning and every evening. It makes me crazy and I know it's not a healthy habit, but I can't seem to stop. I even tried to have my son hide the scale from me for a week. Thinking this would help me break the habit. Three days in I was going through withdrawal and started searching for the hidden scale. I didn't find it, but begged my son to return it to me. I figured, I'm just not ready to give it up, so I continue to weigh myself twice a day (ridiculous) but I no longer let the numbers dictated how I feel about myself. Some day I want to be happy to weigh myself just once a week. I think that will feel more normal to me. Right now, I'm a bit obsessive.

Progress, not an Perfection....

I'm at that point where I'm on track with my eating and getting my exercise in, but now I'm anxious to see changes like really fast. I'm terrible to keep getting on and off the scale, grabbing the measuring tape and trying on clothes that have been a bit too snug. I think I should hide the tape and scale and figure out how to stop obsessing over what I have done.

Anyone else do this, or am I just really weird? emoticon
