How often do you weigh yourself?

I do it every morning on empty stomach (and empty bowels). I find that it helps keep my weight in check. If I see a deviation that is more than the usual up and downs, I loose my appetite for that day and I really watch what I eat.

  • Loosing your appetite for a day isn't healthy weight management! I also don't think it's healthy to weigh yourself that often and that I can actually perpetuate eating disorders (not eating for a day). I weigh myself about once a month at the gym.

  • I'm kind of obsessive, I do it twice a day. Once in the morning and again before bed. Though I have been told I should only do it once a week.

  • I don't trust that evil machine with my secrets...........LOL I used to do it twice a day, but that was rediculous and I just go by how I feel. When I start feeling fatigued, I know I've put on a few and back off a bit or up my activities.
