I've been weighing myself on Sundays, but am thinking of switching to Fridays before the weekend dinners out, etc...

Though, I must admit by weighing myself Sundays, it keeps me in check on weekends...

Would love to hear what others do.

Everyday, but I prefer to look at overall trends. There is a cool site called trendweight that links with and takes your scale readings to determine your "Trend" weight.

For example:
My last weigh in (on 8/8...forgot to weigh on 8/9) the scale said 184.4, but my trend is 186.8.
Although scale readings may be all over the place, my trend has been constantly going down.

On days when I feel skinny lol

I would weigh myself everyday, but I don't have a scale yet. I'm using the scale at the gym. So when I feel like I've lost weight, I weigh myself at the gym, first thing in the am before eating

Sunday only because I started on a Sunday and want to keep to a weekly weigh in.

I weigh myself at different times of the day, every single day if I possibly can. I know lots of people recommend ignoring scale weight but I figure the more data I have to work with, the more accurate it will be. The range of fluctuation has narrowed since I've been counting the calories and I can almost predict what the scale will say before I step on it :)

I usually do on Wednesdays, for no reason in particular.

I usually weigh in on a Monday as it's a brand new week and let's you focus on what you want to achieve that week

Friday... but signing up to weighttrend as we speak :)

Sunday, because I take measurements too and don't want to be doing it while in a hurry.

Just the days with a 'y' in them.

If you want a mobile version of the website posted above, I like 'libra'; there's a few others too.

Sunday's as it seemed the obvious day to do it and I'm now thinking hard as to why but can't lol

I second what @kay699 said. :)

I'm another daily weigher. I find that I'm less discouraged by fluctuation this way and it helps keep me in check. Plus I really like seeing how things affect my weight, what makes me hold more water, etc.

I weigh in every Monday morning. I normally exercise harder on a Sunday as it's my only day off. It's just a psychological thing.
August 10, 2014 2:44 AM
I only weigh myself the week after my period has ended.

Daily for me, although like to keep an open mind as to alternatives, especially when thinking ahead to what I will do during maintenance. Sunday seems like a good option, although the thought of weighing Monday & then Fri/ Sat I can see the appeal to also, at least if you were to split the week in terms of eating well Mon-Fri, and the cutting loose the weekend. Ah, anyway, these are more maintenance thoughts :)

Always on Mondays and always naked (wouldn't want those few ounces influence my reading!).

Sunday is my weigh in day, also my cheat day, eat whatever I like within reason but still log my calories so I don't go too mad!!

When I was weighing in weekly I would weigh in on Monday mornings. Then I tried daily for a while.

Now I weigh in when I think of it. Sometimes its every day or two. Other times it is a couple of weeks. And I admit I try to avoid weighing in on days I feel fat embarassed

Daily, but I only log it on Fridays.

Saturdays, so I can be a bit more lenient with food on the weekends.
