    How often to you weigh in ?

    Hi All,

    I know this thread has been done to death but I was just wondering about the reasons behind why we do what we do....!!!

    I have been toying with the idea this time of weighing myself monthly. I was a little naughty before and used to jump on them every day and it lead to me trying to nibble things and see if it made any difference. I know from the past how my weighins fluctuated from week to week and I struggled with the frustrations of being 100% week in week out and then having a 1lb weight loss.

    Has anyone else tried keeping it to monthly?

    I have told my husband to hide the scales and not give them back to me until the end of the month. I so hope this works and keeps my head in check! xxx

    Good luck! I weigh weekly, I lose slow so daily weighing is out. But I need to weigh weekly to keep me in check I think.

    Focus on the individual steps you need to take to achieve your goals, rather than worrying about the entire journey.

    Hi,
    I am going to weigh inn weekly as I feel I will need the motivation of seeing the numbers drop, I am totally a numbers person though, I like to set goals and work twds then, but I have no patience to wait an entire month to see my first result, even thought I bet it would be amazing!

    I always swear i'm not going to be a daily weigher but then can't help myself... but its never a negative for me, i either use it to dig my heels in and try a little more exercise or i'm dead chuffed and drink some water to celebrate haha

    Looking forward to seeing how your monthly weigh in plan goes, i might change tactics

    I'm normally a daily weigher when I'm behaving myself lol But my scales are being dodgy right now so by the looks of it I might end up being a monthly weigher instead!
    My BIIIIG goal : To reach 9 stone (126 lbs)

    I will make the EFFORT not an EXCUSE!

    No matter what is influencing me, it is still my hand
    that puts the food into my mouth

    I can't seem to help myself weighing in daily! I know I shouldn't but I can't help myself.
    I know I'm going to fluctuate over the week so it just gives me that little nudge to monitor what I am eating ( on working solution) and push a bit harder to get to my goal.
