Most mornings, after using the restroom, before hopping in shower. But I log my "official" weight on Mondays.

I have stuck to weighing myself once a week since surgery (Nov. 16). It can be hard to resist stepping on that scale! However, it's great to see a few pounds down once a week. I started weight training and my trainer took my measurements. We will do that once a month. I am excited to see those numbers go down.

Daily in the morning before I eat

I weigh myself a couple of times a week, but not consistently. I weigh first thing in the morning, sometimes before and after I use the restroom but usually after. It really does make a difference even if it is just a few ounces.

Lately it's been every day but I'm 10 days post op so it's a good motivator to see that I've lost 2 pounds in a day! But I'm going to start weighing weekly on Monday. I think I'm going to have to hide my scale though, it's too tempting!

I have one of them big Dr type scales with the weights on top... You know, the ones we all used to dread... it sits in My Kitchen right by the light switch and I weigh myself several times a day... practically every time I walk past it... I know I'm in a downward spiral and gaining weigh with out even looking if I refuse to go near a scale, so I use it to keep myself accountable daily rather than being oblivious for a whole year and then acting surprised when it says I gained 40 pounds since I last looked...

I weigh daily. I don't see a problem with it, I won't record if it is up, only if it is down. :( Weight fluctuations are natural, so I try not to get discouraged, but I wouldn't be same if I didn't weigh everyday, I just like to know how I am doing.

Please,Please,Please, focus on how good u feel. The scale should not predict how u are doing, this can be very up setting to most people including myself.... Good Luck

This is why I only weigh myself once a month. It would be to hard on me to get on the scale and not see a difference for the better.:(

      OMG! My time is quickly approaching! I can't believe in 5 days, my life will be changed forever (for the better!). I have thought about this surgery for years, but kept telling myself I didn't need it. Now that I can view it as a tool and not a solution, I realize I do need this tool. This tool will not only help me physically, but mentally as well!

      Getting close - 196 lbs as of this week.  Goal is 195.  Actually, I'm thinking of adjusting my goal.  I'd like to get down to 185 to get rid of this scraggly belly jiggle, then try to build back up to 200 with muscle instead.

      I’m a complete novice on forums but I think my experience I’ve had so far following a gastric balloon insertion will be interesting to someone…
      I had my obera 365 inserted on 31/08/21.
