    I weigh once a week, first thing on a Monday morning ( after I've been to the loo of course ;))
    It is really hard not to scale hop every day though:rolleyes: and some weeks I'll hop on mid week, but I try not to.

    Its hard though isn't it Chala? Its so tempting, just hop and see how you're doing. The thing I found was that when I did do this, if I had a gain one day, then the fact that our weight is always fluctuating due to fluid ( and for us women, hormones :rolleyes:), never entered my head, it was obviously due to me eating something I shouldn't, and sooth myself I ate away my frustration that did lead to a weight gain :mad:
    So as hard as it is, and tempting, try not to pop on the scales between weigh ins

    I'm like Chala, every morning and night! I know it's not good, but sometimes it does help! This evening, I am going out for a curry with some friends, and I know it's going to get messy, but getting on those scales morning, and seeing it go down, is such a better feeling that it could be tomorrow if I relaxed a little tonight.

    My intention was only to weigh in with the dr, this turned to weekly and more recently daily!!!! Have not lost anything for 5 days in a row - motivated me to get my 30 day shred on AND join the gym this morning!!!! Will do my first gym workout for over a year this evening!

    I weigh once a week at boots, if I had scales in the house I'd be weighing everyday (probably more) and would get dis-heartened if I didn't lose or went up during the week. I got rid of my scales lol

    Great when you find something you love!!!!

    DH has a christmas work party in just under four weeks - I bought a dress from ebay in a size too small so really have the motivation to go for it as I love the dress and don't want to have to buy something else!
