... weigh yourself?

I have my official Weight Watchers weigh in on Saturday mornings, but I tend to weigh myself every day at home.  What about you?

I only weigh myself every few weeks. I know that I haven't lost anything so why get my hopes up. When my clothes start feeling loser then I'll know something is really happening.

I weigh myself every.single.day. Why? I'm crazy I guess! Haha!

Actually, I find that it keeps myself in check. If the scale isn't budging, or if I show a gain, it gets my rear motivated to work harder that day. However, I've heard that it can have the opposite effect on some people.

You are a wise women Brenda.  My sister was a skinny little waif.  She went vegetarian.  I ask her how much she weighs, she doesn't even have a scale....grrr

Oh my goodness, I'm SO glad I'm not the only "crazy" one, weighing themselves every day. It reminds me of when I use to pee on a stick every day when trying to get pregnant!

I go through spurts where I weigh myself every day, and others when I just need a break from the scale.
