Surveying on Weighing: How do you feel about your own weight?

Surveying on Weighing: How do you feel about your own weight?

Do you weigh yourself daily, weekly or almost never? How often do you step on the scales? Is a weigh-in stressful for you?

Yahoo! Shine recently published the results of a survey, in which they asked women how frequently they check their body weights. 

Here’s what they found:

  • 35% - weigh in daily
  • 21% - weigh in weekly
  • 3% - weigh in monthly
  • 22% - weigh in randomly
  • 13% - weigh in during doctor visits
  • 6% - weigh in never

Where do you fit in the weigh-in scale?

Do you think weigh-in frequency impacts diet habits, weight gain or loss or fitness goals? How do you feel, if you discover your have gained a few pounds … or lost a few?

Nutritionists may offer charts of ideal body weights, basing their calculations on such factors as age, body type, daily activity levels, overall health and more.

Just for fun, I tried a blog survey to see what my own ideal weight supposedly ought to be; Here’s what it said:

If you weigh less than this, you either have a fast metabolism or are about to gain weight. If you weigh more than this, you may be losing a few pounds soon!

Is that what I weigh? Not exactly. Actually, I weigh in a lot lower than 130. But, nope, I’m not spilling my stats on here.

Actually, I’d love to lose a few pounds, particularly as it’s summer shorts and swimsuit season.

Still, the blog quiz says I have some wiggle room. Would such statistics lie?

Shoot me those Fourth of July chips and salsa, would you? Hand over the strawberry-blueberry cupcakes. Please pass the popsicles. It’s practically a patriotic duty for Americans on Independence Day.

Salute! And salud. (And let's not weigh in till July 5th.)
