Re: How often do you weigh yourself?

I'm not really dieting but my weight fluctuates due to a thyroid issue.. I NEVER weigh myself. (except at dr appts) I judge my weight by the fit of my clothing. I feel like it's just a number and not a true indicator of "health". With DS, I was down to my prepregnancy weight in 4 weeks. But I didn't fit a single thing! I remember I cried when the nurse happily told me how amazing it was that I was already less than I weighed at my first appointment. I was so disappointed. Since then my goal has been a fit or inches rather than a number on a scale.

Maybe once every couple of months.
We don't own a scale. I never felt the need to own one. my mil has one in her dining room next to the table. I use it when we are there.

I never weigh myself, I feel like I should though because it definitely helps keep me on track!

Daily.
Sometimes up to 3x a day.
I wish I didn't weigh so often but I have to otherwise I get anxious thinking about what the number might be.

monthly. I was weighing weekly with a weightloss challenge I was doing and it made me kinda crazy.

This. It is a good daily remixer for me. When I go for periods of not weighing I get complacent and gain.

Re: How often do you weigh yourself?

Daily. I get excited weighing myself just to check if I gained/lost some pounds. I've been careless of what I eat this holiday season.
