How Are You Dressed When You Step on the Scale?

There is a scale in the women's locker room at my gym and every time I am there I notice about six or seven women weigh themselves during the minutes in the course of my getting dressed or undressed. After much observing, the procedure seems to go like this: Walk over to scale in nothing but towel. Get scale ready to go. Scale signals it's ready. Drop towel. Sigh loudly. Pick towel (and yourself) up off the floor. Head back to your locker, naked.

I've never been one for scales, nor have I ever been one for bearing it all in the locker room, so this is not for me. In fact, I think if I were going to weigh myself, my bra and panties would suffice -- I mean how much can an undies and bra add to my weight? As always though, I know we all have our own weighs ways of doing this so I am curious how you weigh yourself.

I don't weigh myself. I go by how my clothes fit. My goal is to (of course) wear my skinny jeans again! :)

I no longer weigh myself. I get very frustrated. I work out five times a week and am gaining muscle so my weight doesnt change much. A better way to see if I am losing fat is measuring my waist and trying on my skinny jeans.

I have to wear my bra cuz' I can't see the scale otherwise. I hate doing it but it keeps me on some sort of track.

I weigh at home~nude. I take off all jewelry, hairthings, etc. I wear nothing at all whatsoever. Just me. I take off band-aids.

At home, in my underwear. I'm not that worried about an extra ounce here or there, to be honest with you (although, I do take of my Mr. T jewelry and 40lb arm weights before I weigh).

I weigh myself naked at home and in a towel at the gym, but I dont see what the big deal about someone weighing themselves naked in a locker room is...I mean it IS a locker room....and its not like we arent naked when changing and naked in the shower room? Whats the difference??

I do it at home in the morning. If I'm about to shower, then I do it with no clothes. Otherwise, with my pj's :)

I weigh myself naked at home daily. I am not psycho about it, but it's nice to know that I am stable. I don't weigh myself anywhere else.

I don't own a scale. At the doctor's office, clothes on.

I weigh in the buff, but I don't do it often. I try to focus on my body image, muscle tone and the way my clothes fit more so than the numbers on the scale.
