    I don't own scales, but there's a set of scales in the change room at the gym, so every 2-3 months I might jump on it to see what it says, just out of curiosity really. I'm not affected by what they say.

    I don't own any scales, so hardly ever. I had an eating disorder as well and it is much better for me not to have scales in the house because if I do I risk obsessing. As long as my clothes fit as usual I try not to stress anymore.

    rarely. I only bought a set of scales for this pregnancy so I could see how much weight I put on in total. have only used them a handful of times. will do a weigh in today though as I'm 36 weeks.

    when I'm not pregnant, my weight did not move. I didn't gain or lose weight, I simply stayed the same. I still fit into jeans from 15 years ago 😳

    will probably go obsessive once bub is born trying to get back to my pre-preg weight though lol

    Every morning.
    It doesn't affect my mood though.
    I use it to see what I can get away with really, I've been sneaking chocolate in with my dinner lately and getting away with it on the scales so I suppose it's my little partner in crime

    Default How often do you weigh yourself?

    Daily. Started with my last pregnancy to track my gain then continued after to track my loss.

    Since pregnancy maybe once a month. Just curiousity as I never weighed myself with my first.

    Otherwise - once every 6 months maybe? I tend to weigh myself more after I have been sick and I worry about the weight I lost etc etc. Otherwise, I go by how my clothes fit.

    Never! I used to daily but got obsessive with it. Now I honestly don't care, I just go by how my clothes feel

    Sometimes daily, sometimes once every couple of weeks when I'm avoiding the reality. I have an unhealthy relationship with my body and am still dealing with an ED after almost 18 years. I try and go by clothes and measurements but at the end of the day I only care about the number on the scales. It's crap and totally affects my mood for the day.
