Do You Use a Scale?

How Often Do You Weigh Yourself?


How do you feel about the scale? Some people view the scale as a necessity to keep them on track, while others think of it more as something that should be avoided almost at all costs. And while owning a scale can keep you accountable — it's hard to justify reaching for that second cupcake when you know you've got to quantify the consequences the next day — little fluctuations in your weight can be due to just about anything, which can make frequent weigh-ins a frustrating affair. So tell us: what's your strategy when it comes to the scale; do you weigh yourself regularly, or do you use other ways to gauge your weight (like how tight your favorite pair of jeans feel) instead?
