How much does water weight fluctuate?

I weighed 5 pounds less yesterday. Yes, I ate alot. It was my off day. I haven't digested it all yet (sorry, if TMI). I was just wondering, in general (if it DOESN'T change too much according to person), how much water weight does a person carry? How much do YOU carry? Im about 5 2", 159.4yesterday, about 165.4 today.

I already have a plan to get back on track, and I'll be weighing myself again at night to see the progression, but what do you all do when you have to get back on track? Im gunna go double time at the gym and lock down (no, NOT starve myself) on my diet.

I'm quite a bit taller than you, but I've varied up to 5 pounds in a day. A lot of that has to do with hormone levels, as well as the amounts of salt in what I was eating. Best advice: Drink plenty of water, up your fiber intake, get a good night sleep and enjoy a fun workout with lots of variation from what you would normally do.

I easily vary up to 3-4 lbs daily. It seems to remain more constant when I drink a lot of water, I guess it flushes it out rather than storing it? During my time of the month, I will go up 5-6 lbs the entire week, so I take a diuretic that week to help with the bloat, and really watch and lower my sodium. The last 2 months were the first doing that, and I noticed a difference.

I have varied that much too. When I stepped on the scale and was like "OH MY GOD?!!!" what happened to me???!! LOL. I think it is water weight too. I guess we should drink more water to help it.

I find that I weigh less in the morning. Therefore, I only weigh myself in the morning, totally naked, after I go to the bathroom, and before I exercise and eat.

6:21 - I definitely do that too. I almost feel like its cheating, since I only weigh that much for about 5 minutes out of every day. But I also feel like it's probably the most accurate - comparing apples to apples, so to speak.

I've heard that it can be anywhere from 3 to 5 pounds. Best advise I've heard is to pick a day and a time to weigh in and stick to it. They also said that while your losing weight it is best to weigh in just once a week (same time/day) and if your maintaining do it daily to help keep on track.

There was a fan walking the Ohio State concourse wearing a
  • Wholesale Jerseys , and when approached about why he bought a fake jersey he became offended because he was unaware it was fraudulent.That fan bought the jersey on, so he felt it was a legitimate place to purchase such a
  • San Diego Chargers
  • .Most fans are like O'Hara, though. They know that the NCAA restricts Ohio State from authorizing a jersey with a current player's name on it, but they buy them from online retailers.The most popular one is, the international version of Amazon. It's an aggregator of countless independent retailers that will send consumers in the United States the product directly. It usually takes three weeks, but the product comes.

    But sometimes those products are sold second-handedly on places like EBay or Amazon
  • San Francisco 49ers
  • , which is how unsuspecting consumers unaware of what's legitimate end up buying them."The people I've talked to, the majority of people know they're fake and don't care," Van Brimmer said. "That's distressing."

    Impact on Ohio State

    Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith told that a very small portion of the program's revenue on apparel comes from
  • Seattle Seahawks
  • sales. It may be smaller than he thought off hand.
  • St.Louis Rams
  • sales accounted for less than one percent of Ohio State's overall apparel business the last fiscal year. That figure is down from the six-year average of 1.51 percent. Jersey sales peaked in 2011 and declined every year since until last season
  • Stitched NFL Patch
  • , but last season included special national championship product.

    During the last fiscal year -- July of 2014 to June of 2015 -- Ohio State made $1.6 million on
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers
  • , which was 0.7 percent of total apparel sales that totaled $221 million. Sales of T-Shirts, sweaters, hats, shorts, pants and things like that make up the majority. The number of jerseys may seem overwhelming at a game, but in the grand scheme of apparel, they're not the top thing purchased.But that doesn't mean the the mass counterfeit sales of
  • Tennessee Titans
  • isn't a concern for Ohio State."There's a quality issue. Where was it made? How was the worker treated? There's a lot of issues involved," Van Brimmer said. "Counterfeiting is a crime."And Ohio State is having a really hard time of shutting it down. In the old days, counterfeit jerseys were made in mass in places like China and brought through a port of
  • Washington Redskins
  • into the United States in a place like New Orleans. Many times, those counterfeits were intercepted by U.S. customs agents and they never saw the secondary market.

    Now those manufacturers are making and shipping those counterfeits directly to the consumer, so it's much harder for Ohio State to track and shut down. Ohio State tries to shut down every fraudulent manufacture it comes across -- places like AliExpress have fraud departments -- but most times those manufacturers pop back up under different names almost immediately.Ohio State sales are
  • NBA Shop
  • , though. It's just hard not to notice when you go to a football game that those fakes are floating around everywhere you look, whether the fan knows it or not."From a total sales perspective, we've seen nothing but increases this year," Van Brimmer said. "It's hard to say what the impact is because things are good
  • NHL Shop
  • . If things were in the toilet we could tell you something's going on and things are going badly."But the problem with these kind of goods is that we can't track them and we don't know how much we're losing or how many of the illegal goods are actually in the market place."
