I've found that what works best for me long term is a couple of times a week. I actually get better feed back from how my clothes fit (and when they get too big) than from the scale.

bi-weekly ~~usually Saturday or Sunday {Saturdays are weigh-ins for the challenges} and then Tue. or Wed. so I can keep TRACK of how I am doing and what I need to eat ~like more protein or do ST ~Strength training or running for that day.
I have lost 14 lbs. so far and only -5.8 lbs. to go for me to have a healthy weight and BMI. I lost 3 lbs. on SP,then joined the 2018 5% Summer Challenge and lost 5% plus extra = - 11 lbs.!!! Gained a little back during the Interim [between challenges]. Now , I am on the 5% Fall Challenge and have lost- 1.6 lbs. so far for 3 weeks.

In God my heart trusts. ----Proverbs 28:7

Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6

KNOW that the LORD is GOD.It is HE who made us,And we are HIS;
We are HIS people,
The sheep of HIS pasture.
Psalm 100:3

I now only get on the scale one a month. My weight loss stalled for so long that I was getting discouraged at seeing the same number, or close to it every week. So I decided to seek NSV’s that showed my progress, away from the scale. This method was so successful for me that I decided to make monthly weigh ins my norm, for now. I am 23 lbs always from my goal and I don’t want to get frustrated by a number.




Being positive is a choice. My Mantra: “Every day is may not be good, but there is something good in every day." Each morning seek the positive and you will have a good day. Always remember, “Your only competition is YOU.”

It depends. Usually once a week to make sure I'm not losing too much weight. Sometimes I do it more often.

Pretty much daily. I know that's not recommended, but it keeps me focused. Also, I can compare weight fluctuates to previous days food to see if sodium, etc are an issue.

Never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never-in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense.

Everyday although I tell myself I shouldn't - I am in maintenance mode and feel the needs to reassure myself everyday (not the best addiction but perhaps not the worst).

Always puzzled when this type of topic shows up in the wrong place (this board is for "What's up at SP" and gets more responses than a real questions about what's up at SP.

There is no such thing as the final success in life. What is really meaningful is the courage to face the next minute, the next hour, the next day.

About once a week. In the morning when I get up. After I urinate. Then I step on the cold scale in my basement, naked. Too much info? Not enough?

Twice per week; once at home on Saturdays and again at Weight Watchers meeting (usually on Fridays). That way, I can compare first morning before showering and dressing and later in the day, fully clothed and hydrated.

We CAN do this; so let's GO!
