    Does anyone prefer to weigh in monthly or does everyone do weekly.

    im doing monthly as i couldnt cope with weekly id get to obsessed then depressed if i lost 3lb one week then put on 2lb the following week if you get my drift.
    Thats not to say i wont put on after each month but i think i can cope with the longer time:wave_cry:

    I like to weigh weekly as I haven't got the patience to wait for monthly. I need to know that what i'm doing is working to keep me motivated x

    OMG monthly! I can't stand the wait for a weekly weigh in to come round, i definately don't have the patience to wait a whole month lol

    I try to keep it to Friday mornings, but quite often jump on the scales mid week if i need reassurance that i am loosing something

    i could never do monthly! i weigh myself twice a day. once in the morning and once at night. but i use a weekly weigh to log the weight that i have lost/gained! i need to see results. :D

    I weigh myself pretty much every day, but that's only because I go on Wii Fit every day and it makes you do it! :D Otherwise I stick to weekly, I like to see that what i'm doing is having an effect (or not...) but I can see why monthly would be good, if you've stuck to the diet and are able to see big results!

    i have a wii fit but dont go by the weighing side as i have it on carpet and it can give a differnce of up to a whole stone depending where i place it!
    it is a great feeling when your clothes feel looser. soon be time for a shopping spree for you :D

    I definitely prefer weekly weigh ins. I like to see what progress (or not ;) ) I am making. I don't think I would be able to wait a month!

    I'd love to be able to weigh in monthly but I just haven't got the patience and like most others I tend to weigh myself at least once a day most of the time.
