  • Makes sense to me! I bought a scale about 2 months ago, but for the previous 13 years of marriage, I did NOT own one. It's much easier to let the pounds creep up on you if you don't give yourself a weekly (at least) reality check.
  • I've kept to a schedule of weighing 2-3 times/week. Tuesday shows me if my relaxed eating over the weekend was a bit too much......Thursday is my official weigh in day. I've been maintaining for over 4 years and only once did I get more than 5 lbs over my goal and that was after coming back from 10 days in Florida. That vacation proves you can't exercise away overeating.

    Weighing regularly, just like tracking are key tools for losing and maintaining my weight.
  • Weighing in daily has helped keep me from crossing back into bad habits. I know that, while a gain of a couple pounds in a day or two can be normal, I am able to catch myself before more pounds creep in. It's far easier to manage a couple pounds at the onset!
  • I was a weigh-in weekly person, but had problems staying on track with good choices. Now I weigh-in daily and have had a more steady weight loss experience.

  • Trying to keep up with weight and chime in (workout eat better workout harder if necessary) to improve my chances of maintaining weight.

    God bless & be encouraged.

  • I just left the following comment on another article "Break Free From the Scale!" on SP....
    and am repeating it here.
    I'm a weigh-everyday person (for the past year) with good results. Just recently weight was creeping up a few pounds, took a few days break away from the scale, totally concentrated on nutrition, and I'm back on track. The lesson for me was that I was getting a little lax on the nutrition side. Now back to weighing every day. -
  • Thanks so much for this article--as my goal weight is getting closer, I'm trying to plan early for maintenance. I especially needed the info on weight range.
  • I regularly weigh in three times/week and track my weight. That seems to work for me and I can watch the trend line.

    I weigh daily and record weight once a week. keeps me honest., aware and accountable.
  • I weigh in weekly, because then there's the very real possibility of seeing a loss on the scale. When I have weighed in daily, I felt de-motivated because things didn't change fast enough. Plus, my house doesn't have central heating, we use a wood stove and so it is always really cold in my bathroom, except for maybe about 9 weeks in the summertime. So it doesn't feel very rewarding to run around naked when things don't even change that often!
  • I prefer to weigh everyday. I know it fluctuates but I get into big trouble when I do not weigh. I gain weight very easy and fast. So in order for me to maintain or loose I have to be on top of it.
  • I wont weigh myself every day because your weight can fluctuate due to hormones and other factors. I will only weigh myself weekly at most
