    I weighed myself a few times a week while I was trying to lose weight.
    Now that I'm where I want to be, I go by how my clothes fit, and how I look in the mirror.

    I weigh once a week, when I remember. Ipay more attention to the fit of my jeans. I am super excited that they fit comfortably on the first day of my cycle this month!

    Yes. For my body and for my food.

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

    Yes, absolutely, several times a week. The Number isn't the only thing I pay attention too, but for sure I measure and track.

    I just stopped weighing daily. I have also stopped tracking calories. Hopefully it's not a recipe for disaster! My plan is to weigh myself monthly and measure bi-monthly. After diligently tracking everything for 6 months, I feel I have a pretty good idea how much food I'm eating. And because I IF daily, I'm more at risk of eating too little than too much.

    I'm free, finally free

    this. I weigh myself almost daily, and if I see that I've gained weight I have more incentive to eat less for the day.

    Scales for body and food, too.

    I weigh every day. It works for me. I obsess if I don't weigh. I have lost almost 75 lbs over the last two years. At the moment I am trying to make sure I maintain my loss. I have found that I can gain as much at 8-10 lbs before I notice it in my clothes. I need to weigh to see if I am starting to trend up so I can do something to head it off.

    Since going primal almost a year ago, I only used a scale twice. I don't even keep a scale in the house, so I just do I when I'm at someone else's. Both times I found, that I lost a significant amount of weight, which was very motivational. (Even though I already knew that going by clothes and measurements.) I was actually thinking about getting a scale as a new means of measurement, since I can't go by clothes anymore. (They all fit now
    However, I think if you truly want to see your progress, you're better off, taking pictures of yourself once a month or so. You'll see changes you couldn't possibly see by looking at a number.
