Is it better to weigh myself every morning? Or should I weigh myself every other day?

In brief: Fortunately there is

No "right" answer. If a patient is monitoring congestive heart failure then close monitoring is needed.
If one is on a weight loss program daily assessment could help reinforce progress, but the safe level of decrease is 2 lbs per week so weighing in 1-2 times per week is more than enough.
