Weighing In
I have been doing your boot camp for the last 12 weeks. I have lost 28 pounds and went down three dress sizes. ... My question for you is how often should I weigh myself because sometimes that scale is just not very friendly. 
— Sheila, Boot Camp member

Oprah admits that only weighing in once a week can be tough, but according to Bob Greene, this is the way to go—eventually. "When you lose weight through exercise and eating right as opposed to just restricting your calories, your body retains tons more water. I tell people not to weigh themselves the first two months. You have these wild fluctuations. After the two-month period your water weight has stabilized. My recommendation is no weighing yourself the first two months, then after that, no more than once a week.
