I agree with some of the other comments here. I do weigh daily, but I do it keep focused. I only log my weight once a week and I ultimately measure my progress on a monthly basis since that's where the progress really shows.
I know from lots of experience, that when I don't weigh in, I slip, I lose focus and I gain weight fast. My whole objective right now is to see the number on the scale decrease. I'm well attuned to the fluctuations which happen on a day to day basis and that does not stress me out.
Plus I can gain a lot of weight before my clothes start to feel snug (it takes a huge loss for me to drop a size) so that's a terrible barometer for me.
I set short term goals - right now I have an end of year goal I'm targeting, that's 3 months out which I think is reasonable and healthy.
