Google fit had this convenient menu entry named "Log your weight", which is something I do about every day for a few years.
I'm using the Android app Libra as well. It is actually much better than Google Fit at weight tracking thanks to adequate data smoothing, giving a better idea on how your weight is evolving.
Google Fit uses your weight for calories calculations however so it's a good idea to keep it up to date.
But Google removed the "Log your weight" access in latest Fit app update.

Thanks for the heads up. I have disable auto update for Google Fit.
+Raymond Wong note that it's still possible to log your weight by going in the settings, scrolling down, tapping the current weight and entering a new one.
But it's slow and inconvenient. And the menu wasn't exactly crowded.
It's a pity Libra's Fit support broke some time ago.
+Alberto Salmerón Moreno yes and since Libra is open source it would be the right time to contribute a fix for that 😊
+François Simond I didn't knew Libra was open source, but I can't seem to find the code…
+Alberto Salmerón Moreno it appears the author has removed the open source mentions and source code from github:
Maybe it's not open source anymore then, let's ask!
+Alberto Salmerón Moreno just sent this mail to the author.
He doesn't answer to question in the Google+ community for a while however, so maybe he moved on and I hope he's okay.
Hello Daniel !
I'm a developer and happy user of Libra for several years.
Google just released a Google Fit update that makes weight logging cumbersome.
I was wondering if Libra was still open-source. Since it's an app I use daily I would consider contributing a fix for the Google Fit integration.
You probably know this already but, if you want to own a new gadget, you could purchase a "smart scale", that automatically logs your weight to Google Fit every time you use it.
I'm not invested in Withings in any way, but I own this model  and I can tell you it works well.
+Benoît `BoD` Lubek haha pushing for connected scales sales is indeed the only thing I could think of to justify making manual weight logging intentionally harder.
(and wow 100 to 150€, that's expensive)
Yeah, it's true, they're a bit too expensive :/
Xiaomi has cheap smart scale
