Hi, anyone else weighing them self every day??
I know I probably shouldn't but I weigh myself every day. I find it helps me stay on target.

I weigh just about everyday too. But only put it on the Calendar once a week.

I weigh once a week and that's when I record.

From what I have read, it doesn't matter much if you weigh once a day or once a week as long as you are tracking. If you weigh more than once a day, you aren't seeing any change that really matters and if you go longer than once a week, you aren't really tracking effectively enough. Otherwise, it's about what you can tolerate.

For me, I like to weigh once a week because I find I become too obsessive about my diet if I weigh once a day. Other people like to weigh daily because they feel it keeps them honest and/or motivated. What works for you is good enough.

When I'm even bothering to, I do weigh daily. I also keep in mind that it can fluctuate up to four pounds in one day so I don't freak if it goes one way or the other a few pounds. I just look at the over all trent. I'm just not consistent about it though. I'm currently on a daily weigh-in run though. Hopefully I can keep it up.
Cheers!

This is a problem I've had in the past and with the new commitment of weight loss that I started just yesterday, I am going to FORCE myself to only step on the scale once per week. I am doing Atkins, so this is difficult. Sometimes the weight loss gets so exciting that it's hard not to climb up on that thing right when I walk into the bathroom each morning...but this time I'm really going to try. I think it might be okay if every Thursday (my weekly weigh-in will be Sunday) I do step on and quickly assess my progress...just in case there is a rise in weight that will cause me to reevaluate what I've been doing wrong (or right!).

TOO MUCH I AM SURE. Weigh daily and find that fluctuation disturbs me. Am trying to just weigh once or twice a week, or learn to deal with fluctuations.

Blue Water Bottle - Like your comment. Should probably follow your example. Probabaly be much happier that way and less likely to get discouraged. Thanks for tip!

maybe nobody has added the type of hot dogs you have eaten into the database. If the food is not there you need to add to database then it can be added to your food diary

trouble adding item that you.
according to your profile you updated your weight yesterday, and you have been adding food to your food diary, so not quite sure what the problem is?
