I don't own a scale, but weigh myself every time I go to the gym. The digitial scale lets me obsess over my exact weight down to the tenth of the pound. *sigh*

same here, but since I switched to getting my exercise by biking instead of going to the gym, I don't go to the gym or weight myself very often.

The nice part is that I've been losing weight, so weighing myself at the gym usually makes me happy. The less nice part is when I gain back a few pounds temporarily and I get to obsess over them.

But, since the trend is overall in the right direction, it's mostly a good thing.

I don't think of it as a bathroom scale, as I've never had it in the bathroom.

My settings seem to be "weigh myself every day" or "weigh myself twice a year and be shocked and saddened by the numbers". I would love to have a "weigh myself once a week" setting, but I don't seem to be able to do that; it's apparently all or nothing with me.

At the moment I'm weighing myself every day and charting the numbers on a spreadsheet, so I'm mostly concerned with the seven day average.

Ah, I finally figured out what your icon is a likely picture of...
(It helps that I've been shopping for them.)

Yup. I hadn't intended it to be a self-portrait, but they were very shiny when first installed.

Typically monday, which is my rest day.

I usually weigh myself daily at a consistent time (morning)
and then chart the data so that I can see trends.
That way small bumps up or down aren't a big deal
but I can feel progress one direction or the other over time.
(Sadly, my progress of late as been in the "wrong" direction. :(

I user the scale at my sweetie's house.
It's not that I'm working at losing weight, but I like knowing what's happeneing.

the poll has nothing to do with controlling weight.

Never said it did... was just explaining my scale usage.

need a gym category
I don't own a scale. sometimes, what gets me to the gym is neurotic desire to know my weight, sometimes hot tub, sometimes even genuine desire to work out. seriously.

I own a scale, its range well, is too low to accurately weigh myself. So I don't use it.
