I weigh myself daily, which is not what my doctor recommends. However, I’ve dieted for so much of my life I’m fully aware that my weight will fluctuate and go up and down for different reasons, so it does not discourage me to see a temporary rise in the numbers. I chart my weight and like to look at the trends.

Daily but I really should stop because it is aggravating when the scale isn't moving.

I’m 4 weeks post op now and I weight myself everyday morning. The fluctuation actually bother me sometimes but as long as I lose not gain I am fine.

At least it doesn’t sound like scale has gone up for you yet. I weighed this morning and I was two pounds more than yesterday. 😫

Like alot of others (and unlike probably the same amount of others, lol), I step on the scale every morning, naked, and after I pee. Been doing this now for 2.5 years.

During weight loss phase, I use to weigh myself before and after a good poop just for funsies.

Once someone mentioned they weighed themselves before and after a shower to find out how much their wet hair weighed...got excited at the thought and tried it out, but whomp whomp...my wet hair made no diff. 🤣

This is me. I have checked after falling back asleep too. But the fluctuations don't bother me as long as I am in a downward trend, so I weigh myself every day if I'm home or at my parents' house where I know the scale more or less matches mine.

I would say that if you find yourself getting panicked and wanting to do something extreme because of a 0.5 lb weight gain on any given day, probably you shouldn't weigh every day. I expect my weight might go up 1-2 days in a row but still be down for a the week. I just don't want to go a whole week without being accountable. YMMV.

Daily to keep myself on track but officially recording my weight on the 1st of each month.
