How Often To Weigh

Thoughts for today
Can't think of much today, so how about the topic of how often to weigh. I know there are all kinds of schools of thought on this, but I like knowing every day. Supposedly, you are at your lightest when you first wake up, so I do it then. My wife thinks I'm crazy for doing this because of all the fluctation you see that way, but I personally couldn't stand to wait a week or two or whatever before I knew. That's about it for tonight..

About 45 minutes of Wii Fit, burned over 100 calories!

Wheat pita toasted with a little bit of Smart Balance spray.

Went to Calypso with the wife and a friend from work. Had the 1/4 chicken (white) with Carribean jerk sauce, Bean and Corn salad, and 1/2 the portion of spiced sweet potatoes. Most excellent lunch. Glass of water.

2 slices of Papa Murphy's (take and bake) thin crust pizza with onions, black olives, green peppers, and mushrooms.

6 natural almonds. A few Goobers (choclate covered peanuts) out of the freezer.


  1. Hey - good job on the Wii! I wish I had one of those! I don't know about weighing every day.. It would depress me. I weigh once a week, and even then there can be fluctuations. But if it keeps you motivated, and you know it can fluctuate so you don't let it get you down when it does, then it works for you! A lot of people get too obsessed with the number on the scale, and then weighing that much becomes a liability for them.

  2. I was a daily weigher for years and only the last two weeks have switched to twice a week.

    As long as you don't let the daily fluctuations drive you crazy, and you track a weekly trend - you should be ok.
