so far, never. I am losing weight. My clothing are very lose and that is good enough for me.
Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And that no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dreams, because every second of the search is a second’s encounter with God and with eternity" -Paulo Coelho Alchemist

Daily. I am accustomed to the normal fluctuations that take place, but I find that starting each day with a weigh in reminds me to be on track and focused on my goals: what I'm eating, activity, positive self-talk, etc. I know that doesn't work for everyone, but it does for me.

Agree with Mordalia. Daily weigh-in because it keeps me honest. It has also taught me that sometimes my body goes up a pound or so for no good reason at all; it's just a normal fluctuation. And I've stopped getting upset about it.
I tried the weekly, and monthly, weigh-in and found that I THOUGHT I was losing weight, but actually wasn't, and sometimes was even gaining.
I've also been reading lately that experts now say the daily weigh-in is not such a bad thing after all, and everyone should just do whatever works for them.

I used to wrestle in high school and college and we tend to be a bit obsessive about exact weight. It was normal to answer the question "how much do you weigh?" with "I don't know, I was 153 and a quarter this morning". I don't get stressed by the weight, I am interested in how intake...salt, water whatever effects my weight.
I get the urge to weigh myself in between sometimes, but I know that if I do, I start playing mind games with myself and the scale. And the scale always wins. So, I force myself to abide by the 1x/week weigh-in schedule.
Goal 1 - break 200 (46 pounds lost)**DONE** Goal 2 - leave obesity behind (BMI 29.9, at 185#) **DONE** Goal 3 - BMI = Normal (154# or less)
No for me right now. I used to weigh myself once a week, now I decided I would rather see bigger results when stepping on the scale. I will step on it when my clothes start to loosen up more. Yesterday I noticed my face was thinning yay! I also noticed that I kept pulling my pants up some after they would slip down a little from loosening up yay !

I weigh myself every morning. I don't know if I think I lose weight in my sleep. But it is an habit that I have. Can I enter my weight changes each morning? The weight tracker says to enter it in weekly.
