    i've always been told to avoid the scales and just WI once a week but I can't resist knowing that i'm progressing. is this really bad? should i force myself to only weigh in once a week?

    Two or three times a day for me, I'm afraid, although I do realize that I shouldn't trust all of those readings so I try to really only take notice of the first one in the morning.

    I'm a scale addict. Not only when I get up and before I go to bed, but I write it down too, in a little notepad by my bed. Eeeeeeeek !

    Every morning, with no clothes on, after a wee and before breakfast! How sad am i? I just can't help myself. I even do it before SW weigh in so i know how much difference there is between my scales and theirs. (1/2 lb)

    I have a terrible habit and seem to have to get on the scales every time I go past them (which is rather a lot as I have to go past them to get to the PC).

    I'm really stressed now though as I am showing as 2lbs heavier than last sundays WI. I've not cheated and have done plenty of exercise so I really hope it changes by then. I am now going to worry until Sunday!:(

    This is the trouble, if you weigh at home and it says you have gained or maintained you feel disappointed. For me then this can lead to a binge!

    My scales say I'm about one pound heavier than I am on SW scales. For me I'm the opposite to you Bumpy0 - if I think I might have gained then I really get my head into gear to make sure I lose! xxx

    Every morning, after a wee and naked guaranteeing me the best possible result :p.

    I am trying to cut down to 1-2 times a week but may have to get OH to hide the scales/batteries in order to achieve this but then again he is as bad as me for daily weighing :rolleyes:.
