Every day. I have chronic edema and diabetes. My weight can change 3-4 lbs in one day, depending on what I eat. Gained 15 lbs from Thanksgiving to New Years. Lost 14 lbs as of today. I have lost 110 lbs from Sept 2018 thru Dec 2019. Should have died in the hospital, but UMKC staff and my family pulled me thru, and here I am! 😀

Is weighing once a week enough to track your weight?

Once a day keeps me thinking. Keeps me from veering off course.

As often as I can, i use the scale in the gym at work. I have a health coach at work (very lucky to be at this company)and she recomends weekly; yet my friend is doing N o o m and they have a daily weigh in for her. you dont want to drive yourself crazy with it, otherwise do it asmuch as you want to.

I generally weigh in probably between 3 and 4 times a week comparing what I see on the digital scale at Planet Fitness gym and my digital home scale. It's kind of annoying because too often they are different by sometimes a few pounds and yet sometimes they'll show the same. I don't know which one is right or the both of them are off, but I think it's relatively close because they both show me coming down and wait.
I use the formula on https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/319731.php#calculating-how-many-calories-are-burned-in-a-day ...that being
For men: 66 + (6.2 x weight) + (12.7 x height) - (6.76 x age)
For women: 655.1 + (4.35 x weight) + (4.7 x height) - (4.7 x age)
I use it because I think the RDI on fatsecret gives too much leeway. Fat secret showed me having an RDI of over 2200 when the formula shown above indicates my RDI should be 1798

I just noticed when I clicked on my apple symbol for my post, it indicated I was losing 4.7 pounds a week and that's way off. I've been trying to lose 2 pounds a week and have been pretty close to that. I think the site is terrific, but some of its calculations are off

I weigh on Sunday mornings after I get up and use the restroom. I don't think weighing often is good. There are too many opportunities for up and downs....once a week is plenty....but at a consistent time with like conditions. And...I have decided that whatever the scale says indicates it is what it is. I can weigh again in 7 days.
