I weigh myself every morning right after I wake up! I noticed that even little things like having a coffee or a big sweatshirt can add as much as 2 lbs, so crazy!!

I am also one of those folks who weighs myself every day. It helps me know I'm on track and headed in the right direction with things. Also, if you're one of those people like me who tracks calories burned, then it's really important to keep track of your weight on a regular basis because even just losing a pound or two makes a big difference in terms of how many calories are burned resting, sleeping and exercising. Even if you're not sharing your weight loss publicly, it's still a good idea to track your weight regularly so you know how many calories you're burning compared to how many you're consuming.

I weigh myself every other week so I won't feel like I'm obsessing over a number. I watch what I eat with FatSecret and work out on my TreadClimber 30 minutes a day, three times a week. I've been working out sporadically due to overtime at work and was sick for a short while but I've lost 2" around my hips already!

Every morning, and I nearly know what I can expect based on previous day's behaviour.
That is the only way I can get detailed feedback on my actions.

Everyday, in the am. If that number is bad, I know I have to be good. Nothing wakes you up more in the morning than a bad number, it's better than coffee.

Everyday, naked, right before dinner. It is the only way to keep myself accountable.

I weigh every day, because I like to see the number. But I know the readings are not accurate. I base my "success" on how well I am following my diet, not what the scale says, because neither the high peaks or low valleys represent true readings, only the trend line.

I chart every day:



If I was only measuring once a week and the reading day was on a high peak, I would be unnecessarily disappointed. If I took my reading on a valley day, I could be like, I lost a lot of weight. But then next week if it fell on a peak day, it would look like I had gained after trying very hard to stick to the diet (and succeeding).

Every morning before i jump in the shower. it is amazing how a simple choice like that midnight little snack can affect your result!

Every morning, after restroom, naked, before food or drink. I think that consistency is important for accurate results.

I don't own a scale. I only weigh myself at the grocery store once in awhile if my clothes start getting loose. I used to be obsessed with weighing in every day, but it was too depressing.

Everyday unless I forget. I tried to stop, but I'm obsessive about my routines and it's just impossible haha.

Every morning before I hop into the shower. Why do we always weigh less in the morning? Really, all I do is sleep and I'm often a pound lighter when I wake up than when I go to bed.

I've wondered that too. According to what I've found I am only burning a bit over 1000 calories sleeping. I'm guessing that most of the weight loss is water. I'm sure going 8+ hours without drinking would result in a fair amount. Plus, I don't know about you but I always go to the bathroom first before weight in too. Smile
