    As you may have guessed this is about weighing myself.
    When I weighed on Monday I had jeans and a jumper and shoes on.
    What do you think these weigh?
    I have no sclaes at home and just wanted to estimate my actual real weight.
    What figure do you think?

    I always allow 2lbs for clothes and 1lb for shoes= 3lbs altogether- not in the least bit scientific though!

    I think you need to allow 2-3 pounds for your jeans and jumper. I always make sure I get weighed in my lightest possible clothes. Sometimes withour jewellery and underwear as my CDC scales are so accurate!!!

    HI There

    My CC said to allow 2- 4 pounds for your clothing - of course depending on what you are wearing.

    I took off my boots when I got weighed cause my boots alone way 2.3 pounds! :eek: solid black heels! LOL

    I didn't want any added weight to my already large total! LOL

    Remember if you are going to weigh yourself - do it the same time each day because your weight changes throughout the day - especially if you are drinking alot of water!

    Water weighs alot, I would love to know how much water actually weighs and effects the total of your weigh ins.

    I'm really obssesive about what clothes I weigh in with! I won't wear jeans as they weigh loads more! Never wear shoes or jewellery!! Even wear trainer socks...not normal socks!!

    I would say a light outfit would weigh 2lbs but jeans, jumper and shoes will easily weigh 4lbs!

    I weigh at home (naked!) and I weigh 4-5lbs less on my own scales than on my CDC's with all my clothes on.

    Hope this helps x

    I always wear the same clothes to get weighed at my CDC's.

    At home I weigh in the morning, after a wee, with no clothes on, and before I've drunk anything.

    It can be 4lbs less then it was the night before, after all the wees.

    I'd like to know how much a poo weighs. :eek:

    Just to let you know a 2 ltr plastic bottle of water weighs 2lbs, there for if you drink 4 ltrs in a day plus shakes etc you can weigh up to 6lbs heavier in the evening, never weigh at different times!!!

    Peachy - I find I don't feel really hungry - it's just after the first few days I start craving something to eat - not through hunger, and I find that hard. Once I got through it last year I was off (wedding I went to soon stopped it though!:) )

    Might go and sort through the wardrobe tonight, see what light clothes i can find for my weigh in monday.
    I remember when i was at weightwatchers i did actually weight my clothes on the kitchen scales before i went for the weigh in. God i was an absolute nutter!
