Usually every morning because I like to. I only log when I see a loss.

This. And it needs to be more than .2 loss for me to log.

Every morning.

Every friday. time of day depends on when i remember to weigh in.
Tell me, when is it best to weigh in, morinings or evenings???

3 times a week. twice daily at work. I think because in my job we weigh the patients twice a day, and I work three days a week.

As long as its at the same time of day and you are wearing the same type of clothes you will be able to chart your weight accurately. I prefer morning because it takes the food I have eaten all day out of the equation.

Almost every morning (once a day). Right after I wake up and after using the restroom. I understand there are normal day-to-day weight fluctuations due to fluid or whatever, and that's fine with me. I just like to see that I'm finally down a good bit from my HW of 137.5... I've lost almost 10 pounds, the last couple since joining MFP.

Every morning right after I wake up and go to the bathroom, before I eat. It helps because I'm still mindful of how "good" I was the day before with exercise and eating right.

Every morning but I started to make a graph of my weight. I'm starting to be slightly concerned as for the past 3 days (including today) my weight is stuck at 67.0kg. But at least I didn't gain :)

Daily but dont take much notice of it- but officially using chemist scales on Fridays :)

I do a monday check in on the chemist scales too to make sure im on track and so i dont cheat in the week!
May 31, 2012 1:25 PM
Every Sunday for my weigh in and sometimes on Wednesday or Thursday to see how I am doing during the week.
May 31, 2012 1:27 PM
every morning~ that way I know exactly where I am and if it is way up- I know I had a huge sodium overload or mega work-out that is making me have fluid retention...

once a week
May 31, 2012 1:27 PM
Hardly ever...but since im starting this diet im going to try to do it once a week

I weigh 3-4 times a day. The ups and downs don't bother me at all--I just count the first one as my "official" weight. I only mark it down here when there is a loss.
May 31, 2012 1:31 PM
Daily ...just for accountability!
May 31, 2012 4:02 PM
Every couple of days to stay on track and to get a good base line of the weight trend. Always in the morning before breakast. Log every loss, and gains if they happen to stick around for a couple of days.

I do take my measurements every 2 months at the moment, but think i'll bump that up to once a month to graph my progress better.

Once a week, every friday morning. I started stepping on it multiple times a day and I was driving myself insane!

LOL i also weigh myself every Friday morning.
May 31, 2012 4:30 PM
every damn day but only record every friday. i'm obsessed!
May 31, 2012 4:37 PM
I weigh daily, but only once per day and it's usually right after I use the restroom after getting out of bed. I think it helps to know if I've lost or gained so I'll know if I need to work harder or if I'm on the right track,

Daily in the morning, as soon as I wake up. Helps me focus on the exercise I am about to do and keeping on the straight and narrow.
May 31, 2012 4:48 PM
In the morning ....I used to do it every day, but when I stopped the weight came back. now I'm making it a priority to start my day on the scale!

Once a week on Sunday mornings
