    If at first you don't succeed, Skydiving is not the sport for you!

    I am in the habit of a daily check in. It may go up a little or down, which could be because of various issues- water retention, digestion, eating late, etc. As someone else mentioned, it keeps me aware of where I am trending. That way if I find that it has trended higher for a few days, I monitor my eating a little more closely.

    Totally obsessed - I hit the scale no less than three times per day - early morning, middle of the afternoon and right before turning off the lights at night. I've lost 68 pounds since last September and have about 50 more to go. Riding is the only thing about which I'm more obsessive right now - ride almost every morning and every evening.

    I use one and keep track of it, but don't really believe in it.

    Every morning at least, and usually again in the evening. The morning is the "Weight of Record" because it's less I suppose. I enjoy constant feedback, and it doesn't bother me to see the regular variation in body weight.

    Someone on here posted that they had one that asked your gender and they did themself both as a man and a woman and when they did it with the woman setting (either right before or after the man setting, I don't remember) there was a difference of ~5% even though nothing about them changed.
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    I did state that I have to stand on a scale about every hour. It's interesting to see the difference from 1 equipment cycle (an hour) to the next when I've eaten lunch during that cycle. Another guy challenged me and we jumped on a scale tared off at -35 lb. I got him by 3 pounds (to the good.) He later saw me and challenged me again. Said, "Hey, I just took a dump, lets go at it again!" LOL.

    Anyways, the reason for jumping in with another response is, got home today, jumped on the scale, and this is the first time I've seen 230 at home since probably 2002!
