    Weighing yourself

    Post by calorified on Tue 22 Jul - 5:53

    How often do you weigh yourself? Do you prefer to know or not know? 

    For me I weigh myself about 5-10 times a day depending on how much water I drink that day. It would probably be better for me mentally if I didn't weigh myself because I can be so numbers oriented, but I need to know otherwise I feel like I may shrivel up and die.

    I weigh myself 2-4 times a day, and usually 2-3 times each time I weigh myself, just in case the scale was off. I'd keep reweighing myself until I get two same numbers.

    I've tried going lengths of time without weighing myself, and I get anxious not knowing exactly how much I weigh. There was a chunk of a few months I didn't have a scale, so I went nuts with math, graphs, and and calorie counting so I could estimate how much I should weigh with only my pedometer as tool.

    I weigh myself about once a week, but I take measurements once a month.

    I weigh myself every morning. If i'm restricting and am deciding whether to eat or not eat, i'll weigh myself - and if i don't like the number, i won't eat.

    I weigh every morning, unless I've eaten over 1200 calories. And I must drink at least 80 oz of water the day before (I normally drink about a gallon)

    I weigh myself every morning. I have to know, or I get anxious throughout the day.

    I weigh once in the morning, take a picture of the weight on my phone, and that's it. I measure myself around once or twice a month.

    Aaalllll the freaking time. Like, every time I go to the bathroom (which is a lot since I drink so much water ^^o) I know I shouldn't, but I like to track it all day.
