    I do it every day, first thing of a morning.

    You? I'm interested to see if there are any other everyday weighers out there :)

    I dont think it good to weigh every day as your weight goes up n down, u should do it once a week at the sqme time imo

    Weekly... monthly... daily... got myself in to a big hole couldnt get out.

    Kept lowering calories, got annoyed with scales, got bad moods, all in all i was a nightmare to be around im guessing.

    Then got slightly ill, then gained 10lbs here i am now back to weekly and sod the scales!!

    Its all about how your feel, how your clothes fit, scales are NEVER a true thing.

    I think you should stop doing it before it gets out of hand, thats from what happened to me.

    You know I don't think thats true (at least maybe not for everyone), i've weighed myself almost everyday (first thing of a morning) since January and as long as i've not done anything to gain weight, it tends to either go up by 1-2 ounces or stay the same or go down :)

    I know exactly what you mean, its really hard to break the habit! I started doing it weekly, but then it became an everyday thing. I tried getting out of it but I found I was happier doing it everyday so went back into old habits.

    I honestly wish I could take that perspective and say sod the scales but one of the most important things to me is that i'm classed as healthy eventually so the scales are kind of important. They keep me going and keep me motivated :)

    Me, I weigh myself on my wii every morning and I'm totally addicted and to scared not to weigh now incase I've put on and if I have I cut back that day on calories even if it's only my bmi that's gone up a bit not even any lbs and I have to reach my goal that I set, I have to admit it's a bit annoying but can't seem to stop but hopefully I will relax when I reach my goal weight. Think I can't stop aswell as when I do lose puts me in such a good mood :s

    Same Zoe. It puts me a great mood too. I don't mind gaining if i'm expecting it. But admittedly I am gutted when I find i've gained and i've done all the right things. I'd love to be able to break the cycle, it would be exciting to see the scales go down 2-3 lbs at a time at a weekly weigh in but i've no will power to stop.

    Twilightagain- yeah it would be nice to see a bigger weight loss each week but then I think it keeps me motivated to stick with the diet and make sure I lose when I weigh everyday and I worry if i only weighed once a week I'd have a more days of overeating as I'd think oh well I got a while until weigh in day lol sorry turned it into an essay but anyway I completely agree with u :)

    Same as omarsmum. Once in the morning and once before I go to bed. I don't obsess about it but I like knowing. I can see where others would get really obsessive but I'm not like that.

    I would like to only weigh on friday mornings (preferably after a poo!!) but i always sneak a few in mid-week too. Like this week was Monday, today, and then I'll weigh again on Friday.

    Always in the morning though.

    About once a week, but when I was dieting, twice a day or more.

    Your weight will fluctuate during the day. I'm consistently about 2lb heavier in the evenings than I am in the mornings!

    Same here with the 2 lb difference! That's part of the reason I weigh myself at night because I work out after Emma goes to bed so I know if I have to work extra hard that night or not. :haha:

    you can check it out every week or monthly than checking out daily.

    if you want to have an eye on your weight, you can check it out weekly but see to that you do excersise regularly, so that you can maintain your correct wait or if you wish to reduce it..
