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 have lost over 1000 pounds.

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.

Have to agree with jorge loco. Slow, steady and consistent is safer. You don't want to be losing muscle.

JustineJones has it right, but it's not like our bodies decide "oh it's midnight have to reset our calorie counts". Your body doesn't differentiate between days. As long as you&# ...
