weighing yourself

Postby milo » Sun Jan 14, 2007 7:19 pm

I know they say to weigh yourself once a week but how often do you really do it?

I weigh dly. I know each day can change because of fluid etc but I like the idea of keeping myself in check and it works for me. i dont get to worried if I have a slight gain or dont loose when I think I should dly. I really wait till my weekly weigh in and take that as my loss/gain for that week 8)

everyones different I guess, some people weigh weekly or monthly, I cant stand the anticipation :lol:
[no excuses, I can do it!

LOL Slimmin, you sound like me! I go through stages. I'll weigh every day to monitor myself and then I'll forget and do it weekly or whenever I remember. I'm doing it a lot atm just to make sure I keep on track :D

I weigh daily, but like just about everyone else only really go by my Monday morning weigh in. The daily weight check is more just to myself motivated - if it's recording a loss I want to keep going, if it looks to be climbing, I'm motivated to try harder.

Me too, I'm on the scales at least once a day. It does help to keep a check on what's happening. I think if I jumped on only once a week I would be more tempted to overeat earlier in the week, thinking well it's a week till I have to weigh myself so a little pig out can't hurt lol. Good motivation as long as you don't get too upset by the daily fluctuations.

Like most people I jump on the scales nearly every day to watch what is happeining but i rely on the weekly weigh in for the "official" tally.

I agree with the others daily weigh in is OK as long as you dont get upset by the fluctiations. If you have had a good few days but the scales are going up it is easy to get disheartened and fall off the rails.

For example we had friends over for dinner Friday night I had a big meal but did not go crazy, I weighed on Sat morning and then on sunday morning and lost 1.6kg in a day. This is just not a real number!!

starting weight 91.2kg
current weight 85.2 kg

Daily for me too - its motorvational thing im one of these people that has to see progress to egg me on. Except TTOM where i wait til its over to weigh myself as it seems a bit pointless to jump on the scales at that time.

I weigh weekly - Monday mornings like Em!
I look forward to it, it's like Eviction night on BB! or Australian Idol!

It's just not the same if you know before hand how you are going!

I get realy tempted.... but then I think 'nah, I will keep being good so on Monday my reading is bigger and better than what it will be today!'.... my mind works in a strange way!

Thumbs up for the patience Tiff! I just can't seem to push myself a whole week, although I can go a couple of days without checking - maybe once I've lost a bit more I won't be so obsessed with the scales!
