    I know the best way to monitor weight loss is once a week weighing yourself at the same time of the day. Calorie counting and exercising I noticed that my weight varied by plus or minus 1lb if I weighed myself every day, even if the loss that week amounted to 2 or 3lbs.

    Anyway my question is, does any weigh themselves more than once a week? This is only my second day but I am really curious and I want to know if I have lost anything yet!!

    But I dont want to be disheartened to find I haven't lost anything!

    Any advice or patterns people have noticed would be really helpful! thanks xx

    hey , this one is totally personal and everyone is different . I weigh every morning but take my monday morning weigh in as my weeks loss . This is a positive for me .. if i have lost a good amount it spurs me on , if I havent it pushes me to carry on ...... if you think that you may find a poor result disheartening then I would advise once weekly weighing , but if you think it will motivate you then do it more often xx

    I do midweek weigh ins - my weigh days is a Tuesday, so i weigh then and take that as my loss (or gain haha!) then i weigh on a Friday morning too. It spurs me on to get through the weekend, and gives me a shove of motivation to get through the rest of the week. I try not and weigh daily because i know my weight fluctuates, and also i like to see a positive drop in the scales when i do weigh x

    This is a good post! I am pretty much the same, I found that I cant help but to weigh each morning but I only use the weight from my saturday morning weigh in and the rest of the week I use to keep me focused. For me its basically making the best of a bad situation because I will weigh myself regardless! lol :eek:

    Thanks everyone, that is really good advice! I think I will wait until the end of my first week and hopefully I'll be ridiculously shocked about how much weight I have lost!! :D

    I do an official weigh in once a week but as my wife always has the scales out in the bedroom I can't resist checking most days. I guess thats not a problem so long as you don't expect to see much change day to day.

    Re-start for me tomorrow morning! Think I will weigh in on Thursday morning, as well as my Monday weigh in tomo morning, to encourage me to continue for more than the three days I lasted last week! Fingers crossed for everyone!
