Once or twice a day, one of them always right after waking up in the morning.

I used to do it almost everyday, twice a day. But now I never do I'm terrified to do it. I finally gave in and weighed myself today and I wish I didnt. Before that though it had probably been 2 or 3 weeks. I get panic attacks before/after I weigh so I try not avoid it. Hoping to start weighing myself more though as i get stricter about eating below 900/800 cals

Every day right after I wake up! Then I take the numbers from the week and average them and that's what I base my progress on (ideally). Mind gets the best of me sometimes but I've found that averaging the whole week is a good balance for me.

I weigh myself every day in the morning when I wake up (after using the restroom) before i eat or drink anything. I like to be completely empty when I weigh myself to it feels like a more real weight

Every morning (unless I can’t weigh myself in secret), usually 2 or 3 times to make sure that the number is correct

When I wake up, after I use the toilet, after I eat or drink water and sometimes before going to bed. All the fluctuations mean nothing but I still want to see the number.
I weight myself three times or more in a row during the morning to confirm the weight.

There are periods where I don't weight myself at all though.

I weight myself 2-4 times a day. Even at work at times since I work with nurses.

whenever i go to the bathroom, i drink a lot of tea so this is often. i try to weigh myself at least 3 times a day(morning afternoon and night). sometimes i go a full day without weighing myself because i think ive gained weight but eventually i weigh myself anyways because i have to know my weight at all times or i get anxious

Twice a week. I don't like watching my weight doing it's natural fluctuation. I'd rather just keep seeing a downward trend.

once a day, every day, and write it down. i have almost 3 years of data at this point. i weigh myself last thing before i sleep. i figure my weight is at its highest at that time, so any loss i see is "real"

Once as soon as I wake up, and once before bed. I should start recording it. If I gain a pound or two at night, I chalk it up to water/coffee/ diet soda consumption through the day. The weight in the morning is always my saving grace.

I never weigh myself. Its my perception of myself when I look in the mirror which matters most to me. Not the number on the scale.

All day long.... Weight on the scale first thing in the morning after laxitves had taken effect is the most important one though
