The National Weight Control Registry has published several studies on the habits of those who have successfully achieved and maintained significant weight loss over 10 years (4, 5, 6, 7). Their findings are based on the tracking of over 10,000 individuals through detailed questionnaires and annual follow-up surveys designed to identify behavioral and psychological characteristics and strategies used to maintain weight loss. 75% weigh themselves at least once a week.
Here’s a short literature review on weighing habits in the processes of losing weight and maintaining weight loss. Read the source article here.

Well, you’ll just have to buy the book when I finish writing it.
