Does anyone else have this dilemma?

Okay, I weigh myself daily and I am always 3 or 4 lbs lighter in the morning with no clothes on than I am in the evening which is my heaviest.

What gives?

after a day of eating and drinking, your body is full of food that needs to be used for energy or eliminated. this will add to your weight in the evening. clothes and shoes have weight to them as well. when you weigh, do it at the same time of day, recommended in the morning naked, on an empty stomach after some type of elimination.

no, in fact i don't agree. I think the OP asked a question that she didn't know the answer to and found very great responses and answers.

Thanks to all other PP who answered the question with respect.

I agree with the DUH poster.

Who doesn't weigh more after eating 3-4 lbs of food and drinking 4-5 lbs of fluids every day? And then weigh less after 8-12 hours of consuming nothing? How is that not obvious?

Yeah I am with the Duhs! Not a tough one to figure out on your own. But, ask what you like.

To the DUH mmies

It was a legit question. Sorry it did not meet you parameters of what is "acceptable" . Go somewhere else to be insulting.

To the OP - On average, I actually weigh less throughout the day, then I do in the morning. Give or take a day.

I agree with 6:42 everyone on Peer training is looking for support not redicule. This is a safe community where people should feel comfertable asking questions. Back off I;m pretty sure you don't have all the answers in the world

Note to PTers who don't want to be ridiculed:
Don't ask ridiculous questions. You will be called out on it.
See how easy that is?

OP, if you need support in surviving Lounge ridicule, try to link up with the girl who can't figure out why she pees so much now that she drinks more water. You sound perfectly suited to being in a group together.
