Question For You!

Fellow health and fitness bloggers or anyone who steps on the scale, I was wondering how often people typically weigh themselves. I was pretty set on only weighing myself once a week and then last week I got a little scale obsessed and weighed myself a few times throughout the week. So, then today at the gym I read in a magazine that you should weigh yourself everyday to have more success in your weight loss. So, what do you do? What seems right to you? I really have no idea. I thought weighing myself once a week would give me bigger numbers so I would be more excited. But, I heard that if you weigh yourself everyday you will be more inspired to try harder if you don't lose something everyday. It probably doesn't really matter, I was just wondering what you do and what your thoughts are behind stepping on the scale.


  1. I really tried to only weigh myself once a week but that did not work out for me.

    I weigh every morning! When I see the scale slipping upwards (or not moving downwards) it gives me that extra kick to get back on track.

    I tried two weeks of just weighing in once a week and both weeks ended up being a gain. Doing the weigh in everyday keeps me more motivated and I stay on track. That's just me though. :) I'm scale obsessed!

  2. I have been weighing myself about every other day and I have found that I like how it kicks my motivation up if I don't get results that I want. I think I will stick with that for a while. Thank you for your input, I really appreciate it!

  3. I weight once a week! Typically on a Sunday!
