I personally prefer every day, but how about every 3 days or every other day? I don't think I could wait a week. lol

Had to check in on the last post to see if tallglass was talking about weightloss or sex!

nikeit,
remeber , women lose inches faster than weight. It's about how your clothes are fitting , are they getting looser?

Thats why working with weights and doing cardio are necessary.
The more muscle we have the more calories you burn.
hope this helps

I do better weighing in every day when I am trying to lose. An increase makes me work harder and a decrease encourages me to keep going.

I usually weigh myself every morning...if I have seen an increase for a couple of days, I know that I have been eating too much and try to cut back. If I have eaten a bunch the night before I often will skip the weigh in b/c I just don't want to see the scale. lol

I threw out my scale because I became obsessive about my weight instead of focusing on how I looked. I was depressing myself every other day and therefore I would fall off the wagon thinking that I wasn't getting anywhere. I have made a deal with my doc to visit each MONTH and get weighed. So not only do I not obsess about my weight each day, I look forward to the rush of my doctor telling me my "new" weight and bragging a little. I do however measure myself each week in between visits.
Yes I feel the burn, so stop asking!!

I usually do every week... and early in the morning, but I think for a little while I will do it every morning for the first week or so and see how that motivates me, if it does.... I think seeing that scale every morning will push me to think about what I did the day before, good or bad and help me either fix it or continue on with that for the coming day Smile Just a thought!

I usually weigh every day but only record once a week. The ups and downs are normal and I know this so they do not freak me much when I see them daily.

I have to weigh myself daily, just so I can see how I am doing. It drives my husband crazy, because he thinks it is setting myself up for failure. Weighing in daily helps keep me on track, because if I lose weight it motivates me and if I gain it motivates me again to keep going. Just my opinion.

Hi Pedi19. Some people say not to weigh yourself everyday to prevent 'discouragement'. But if you've lost 8lbs its working ! Smile Good for you! I've just (again) started to concentrate on losing. It's a constant battle for me.

I'm not weighing myself for about a month because i've been using weights and since muscle weighs more than fat I know it will be discouraging. I'm going to toning and inches and how my clothes fit.

I've been weighing myself once a day, but recording every three or 4. I sometimes even weigh myself more than once a day, to see how exercise and water intake affects my weight. I've had great results so far, but I'm not counting on it keeping up, though I've tried to weigh in at the same time every day, what I do before I weigh in can make a diference.

If I take yesterday's weigh in with the one before, I would have lost 3kg in 5 days. I'm weighing in this afternoon, after work, before exercise, we'll see if it's the same.

Years ago I would say I had an addiction to my scale, every single day I was on it. It took a loooong time to be comfortable with only weighing once a week. I will NEVER go back to daily again. My scale is in my upstairs store room, out of sight, out of mind. I try to follow program even after the weigh-in day but I am going to plan a treat~none WW treat~at least once a week. A scoop of Whitey's chocolate chip ice cream in a sugar cone is calling me, big time. I want to hold out until Monday but if the call of the cone gets stronger I will get it this weekend. I will plan that day and I will eat fish at meals and Progesso light soup, low point items. To be very honest, I just take my life one day at a time. That is something I also had to learn. I also know when I get to goal I will have to be as diligent then as I am now. I am a Life Time Maintenance member and guess what, I gained 20 back so I know all my life this is what I have to do or I will gain weight. Weighing once a week makes it easier for me.
The way you think determines the way you feel, and the way you feel influences the way you act.

secretly I weigh myself every morning....
so glad to see others on here do as well... I'm not alone!!

I record only once a week.... the rest helps me see what's working and what's not.

I never measure - but I think it's good advice so I'll try to start.

I weigh myself once a week in the local chemist. I find bathroom scales can be very inaccurate. My sis-in-law's scale will record different weights depending on where in the room she puts it!!!! Rolling Eyes

Also you weigh more/less at different times of the day! I actually look forward to weighing once a week. It encourages me to be good throughout the week cause I know that I only want to see a loss not a gain. Having said that it's what each person is comfortable with. If you use it as motivation then all well and good.

Good luck to everyone, keep it up. Very Happy
