I'm tempted to weigh myself every day but I think I'll limit myself to once-a week.

what do you do?

Hello!
For the first 2weeks I weighted myself 3 times a day, lol. I wanted to see how my body respond to each meal. I work from home and that's why I could easily do it.
Now I weight myself once daily and first thing in the morning. During first 2 wks I was really surprised and confused how my weight was changing by going down and up. I was about to buy a new weight scale to make sure it works correctly but before that I stopped weighting myself more than once a day .
Cheers

Hey,

I also weigh every day (first thing in the morning) but it is a very bad habit as your weight can fluctuate and vary so much from day to day. I think the healthiest way is to weigh weekly and then you'll be able to accurately determine if your efforts towards weight loss have been worth it. I only use my Monday weigh-in number and track my weight loss on a chart to keep me motivated

I weigh myself everyday,

My doctor told me not to, but I am genuinely interested in knowing if what exercises im doing are impacting my weightloss.
I normally weigh myself after exercising and then first thing in the morning....Its amazing how much you can lose over night

Jessie....I do exactly the same thing...in hope some kilos have dropped over night.

I get a little despondent when I see that it is the same or slightly increases.....then later in the day drops.

Emma....you may have put on some muscle which would increase your body weight.

This is normal when you increase your exercise regimen.
