    I know there have been a few threads similar to this recently, but thought it would be interesting to see results all in one place. So how frequently do you weigh yourself?

    Are you, like me, a 'scales at the bottom of the bed, first thing in the morning, after your shower and last thing at night, plus times in between if feeling fat / skinny / annoyed???

    Or do you manage to control yourself and go for once a week weigh ins?

    I really feel that I would be better off weighing like monthly, because I know that I can self-destruct if the results aren't what i expected (eat if I'm annoyed at having lost so little and eat if I've done really well and think I deserve a treat....grrr). But I can't do it. I was definitely only going to weigh in on december 8th, but only managed two days without, and am now completely Peeed off because I'm heavier than I expected...

    So what do you do girls? and has anyone found a successful, motivating way of doing it?

    By the way, it is true - I just had a bath and lost a pound while I was in there. Where's that gone then? Surely I wasn't that grubby??!!!!!

    You do know that skin does absorb moisture so you may actually come up heavier than normal!

    Just thought I would mention it for those that shower first.

    I'm addicted - 3 or 4 times a day lol as they are by the toilet, normally do it just after washing my hands. Can't help myself. I won't stop though as it keeps me focused and aware of whether the week is going well or not - if I'm weighing in about about the same as my official WI half way through the week then I know I need to up the pace a bit etc.
    I can't help myself!

    The first time I dieted seriously, probably 15 years ago, I was a scales addict. Weighed in the morning, in the evening, before and after a wee or a poo (!!), I was obsessed.

    Nowadays, I just weigh at SW class, despite actually having my own scales at home. I never get them out. I spend enough of my day planning meals, red/green days, what am I going to eat on the staff christmas meal, etc... If I was spending the rest of my time weighing myself, it would take over my life and drive me crazy. So I just wait until my WI at class and make it an anticipated event.

    and what about this...where are they? On carpet or on tiles? Can make a hell of a difference you know!!!!

    Mine are on carpet at the mo, so I content myself with the fact that if they were downstairs on tiles I'd weigh at least 3lbs less...
