How often do you weigh yourself?



Recommended Posts

My WLC has asked all of my group to only weigh ourselves every two weeks while we are in the 6 month period before surgery. I don’t even own a scale I threw that nasty b*~%h out years ago. So I only go in 1 time a month before my meeting and then on my meeting day I weigh in.

How about everyone else pre and post op?

Pre-op: I hated weighing myself. (Really considered throwing it away.)

Post - op: I try to stick to weighing myself weekly (usually Mondays) but I go through periods where I forget and other time where I get a little obsessive.

I am a little obsessive with weighing myself because I feel like it helps me stay on track. I only weigh myself most mornings. I have always been like this with the scale so nothing has changed for me before or after surgery.

Almost daily. It helps keep me on track, and I know not to get worked up if one day is higher than the last. I record my weigh in only on Monday's. I should probably just weigh once a week, but it has worked for me thus far, so I will stick with it.

Daily, even before surgery.

I was pretty much daily before surgery. Now I try to limit it to a couple times a week. I only record the date on Saturday morning into my log.

During the pre-surgical phase, I weighed myself once a week. Post surgically, I try to limit myself to twice a week, at most. I find that if I do the daily weight thing then I'm setting myself up for disappointment because then I think I'm not losing fast enough.

After a few months, probably close to 6 months, I plan to drop it to once a week and stay there.

I weighed once a week in the early months when weight loss is relatively quick. I now weigh once every 2 weeks now that I'm in the home stretch and weight loss is slow. Once I'm at goal, I plan to weigh monthly. I have a long, uneasy history with the scale and I find the less focus placed on it, the better.

Pre-Surgery, I'd weigh myself when my Lose It! app reminded me and even then, I would ignore it. Especially once I hit my high weight because I was so mad at myself.

Now, post-surgery, I weigh myself daily and make sure it logs into my phone. I compare it to my doctor's scale on the days I am at the hospital. :)

I jump on the scale daily. But I only record it once a week. And if I find that I'm focusing on the numbers too much I will force myself to put the scale away for a couple of weeks.

I got really bad with weighing myself everyday. Now I try to weigh myself only once a week. But to be honest it is usually twice a week.

Pre surgery: Never

Post surgery: Almost every day. It helps keep me on track and I get a sense of accomplishment when it goes down. I don't get upset if it goes up because I know that it'll go down again.

Daily, and I'm 4.5 months out. I write it down every day so I can always see how much I've dropped in the last 30 days. I do admit to sometimes skipping if I know I ate garbage, but usually weigh in every morning.
