    I've done exactly the same before every wi to try and keep circumstances the same. In my case that means not drinking anything at all and wearing the same clothes.

    I wear the same clothes & WI at the same time each week, unfortunately its an evening so weigh heavier than on a morning.
    My WI is between 7 - 8pm so I try have the majority of my water intake by 4pm. I stop drinking around 5.30pm purely because I'd never make it to WI & back without having to stop for a pee!!!

    11am is ok. i used to have my wi's at about 12 but never had a shake or water before. and i always weighed the same on cdc's scales as i did mine when i got up and weighed! go without having a thing and then have a shake when you leave cdc's and some water :)

    My weigh in is at 11am also and I have a small glass of water when I first wake up and then nothing until after I have been weighed! Then on the bus on the weigh home I down a litre of water and have a bar :)

    Bascially your weight fluctuates by 2lbs between morning and evening. I have fought for, and got, a morning WI, usually between 9-10am, and no, I don't even have a sip of water beforehand and I wear the same clothes!

    I don't drink anything but I have a 9.15am WI. Don't go as far as wearing the same the clothes though, surely clothes don't differ that much (saying that I never WI in jeans)

    I weigh in the evening and didnt really think that drinking beforehand would affect it. Mayebil stop rinking a few hourse beforehand.
