How often do you weigh yourself?

I know some people like to weigh themselves daily, but I get too frustrated to do that because it fluctuates so much from day to day with water weight gained and lost. I try to weigh in no more than once or twice a week.

I don't like to weight every day but find myself doing it after I get out the shower

I weigh most days even though I try not to! It's just habit to get on the scales before I get in the shower! I only count Fridays though!

Yeh, I think I should start doing it before I get in the shower (rather than out)... pretty sure my skin absorbs water (+ wet hair etc) and it's making me heavier

I weigh myself about every other day before I shower or have my coffee. I usually just count the Monday weigh-in as the one that matters for the week.

SC! That's actually why I do it before the shower, cos my hair holds a lot of water! Not quite sure that excuse works as well for you though

I stick with one weigh day a week, anything sooner than that bums me out since I fluctuate a good bit due to water (I sometimes drink too much of it). If I waited any less than a week I would start to slack and get off pace.

I have heard all the advice about not getting on the scales too often, but I can't help myself. I absolutely have to weigh myself as soon as I get up in the morning, before I eat or drink anything! I'm sure that I'm pounds heavier as soon as I've drunk my first cup of coffee though.
