    1. Weigh yourself with clothes on, after dinner... as well as in the morning, without clothes, before breakfast, because it's nice to
    see how much weight you've lost overnight.

    2. Never weigh yourself with wet hair.

    3. When weighing, remove everything, including glasses. In this case, blurred vision is an asset. Don't forget the earrings, these things can weigh at least a pound.

    4. Use cheap scales only, never the medical kind, because they are always five pounds off...to your advantage.

    5. Always go to the bathroom first.

    6. Stand with arms raised, making pressure on the scale lighter.

    7. Don't eat or drink in the morning until AFTER you've weighed in, completely naked, of course.

    8. Weigh yourself after a haircut, this is good for at least half a pound of hair (hopefully).

    9. Exhale with all your might BEFORE stepping onto the scale (air has to weigh something, right?).

    10. Start out with just one foot on the scale, then holding onto the towel rack in front of you, slowly edge your other foot on and
    slowly let off of the rack. Admittedly, this takes time, but it's worth it. You will weigh at least two pounds less than if you'd
    stepped on normally.

    :D:D Ha! Ha! Ha! I must admit I always weigh 1st thing in the morning, after my shower, but before clothes, food or drink! I do have to wear my glasses though or else I won't see the result! :sigh:

    I did laugh ..... I have to hold onto my towel rail as my scales tip up otherwise - but sadly they are digital and very accurate and once i let go they normalise!!!

    Also if they are digital scales and don't say the weight you want to see- blame the batteries going flat!!
    Not that since being on CD Ive needed to do that of course! :)
