Kenya Thomas, depending on your goals, experts have different opinions on how often you should weigh yourself. If you're trying to lose weight, most agree that once a week is adequate. However, some people find weighing in daily provides a sense of accountability and is helpful for having a good idea of where they are with their progress. And some people don't find it helpful to weigh in at all, and instead focus on how they feel in their clothes, the balance of their meals and snacks and how they perform with their exercise rather than focusing on the number. If you have specific needs in mind, it's probably best to check with your doctor on the right plan for you. Hope that helps.
