I weigh myself every morning when I get up. I do this to track my progress. To keep focused on my goal. To make any necessary adjustments.

I was weighing daily, first thing in the morning, but now am contemplating only once a week. I don't like the times when I have not strayed, but have gained weight from day to day, even though it might be water or some other temporary result.

I do think once a week makes the most sense, but each individual can determine what works best for them.

I weigh myself once a week - Saturday morning before breakfast. I am hoping that daily fluctuations would have less of an impact if I weigh myself once a week.

Sadly, I'm just losing around .2 kg per week. Ah well! At least, I'm not gaining. Smile

I weigh myself every day, except on days when I know I messed up on my diet the day before. In that case, I wait a couple of days and work to burn off the excess calories before I weigh again. I weigh 1st thing in the morning, before I've ate or drank anything, without clothes on.

IMO - Better to weigh yourself every day - including the cheat days so you can see how and when it impacts you...

My cheat days usually don't show up right away. In fact, the day after I seem to lose a pound or so and then BAM on the days when I have done great, there it is two pounds. Kind of depressing but I did it to myself, huh?

Anyhow, I weigh every morning. Keeps me on my toes. Now I have a lot of work to do this week. Ate way too much this weekend. Cinco de Mayo and all....

everyday in the morning before i go make breakfast. i do it everyday to keep me accountable and try to stay on track. I fudge my diet from time to time and thats ok but i want to keep track of my progress for better or worse.
