    I do this as well. I am doing a weight loss challenge with some girl friends and we made weight in day Monday's to help us stay on track over weekends, it really works!

    I totally agree, with the caveat that I like a day in between to even out the water weight from different eating that's not necessarily higher calorie eating.

My "weekend" days are really Friday/Saturday, so I weigh in Monday. If I were on a more traditional schedule, I'd do Tuesday. There's no reason to be discouraged by a bunch of water.

    I used to do my weigh-ins on Monday and it really did make me accountable for what I ate (and how much I exercised) over the weekend!

    Great suggestion! I tend to slack off on the weekends, but a Monday weigh-in will keep my on track.
