Are you Scale Obsessed?

How often do you weigh yourself?

I probably weigh myself at least five times a day and I know that's probably a little obsessive. I've lost 30 pounds within 4 months and it's almost like I'm afraid I'm going to gain it all back at once (crazy, I know).

    I stopped getting on the scale. I eat well and go to the gym 4-5x a week. I am in the best shape of my life and don't need the numbers on the scale to tell me that. I go by how my clothes fit and how I look.

    Before the stress of my son's health, I was obessed where I weighed a few times a day. But I have been stress eating and havent dared to get on the scale in about 2 weeks. 

    I need to get back into watching tihngs again. The fried chicken and dr peppers have been calling me.

    Yes. I weigh twice a day every day. My weight can fluctuate 4-7 lbs in a day depending on what I'm eating, drinking, doing.

    Dr. Pepper was one of my biggest weaknesses; I had such a hard time giving it up.

    I hope your son is ok!

    Every 4 weeks.. but I don't technically weigh myself, I get weighed at my prenatal appointments. When I'm not pregnant, I'd say maybe once a month or so I step on the scale. When I'm concerned about weight I go more by how I feel and how clothes fit than numbers, especially after my first baby. I got down my pre-pregnancy weight but I still looked and felt fat and nothing fit right, so I ditched the idea of getting to a specific weight.

    Nope.  I weigh myself at the gym every Monday morning before I go swimming.  So, same clothes, same time of day, etc.  If I notice my pants seem a little too snug, I cut down on portions (I already don't eat sweets, drink soda or any sweetened beverage, or eat stuff like chips, and I spend an hour in the gym 5 days a week.

    I weight myself once a week, since having the twins my weight fluctuates like never before. Thankfully it's only 1-2lb fluctuation to deal with.
