    I get weighed on a wednesday at 6.00.
    Normally i have my shakes 7.00 3.00 and 7.00
    On weigh in days I try to have my 3.00 tetra at about 1.00 and I stop drinkin til after weigh in. I do this so that the water and tetra dont add to my weight.
    Am I mad?:wave_cry:

    I don't think your mad at all :D

    I weigh in around 11 or 11.30am and don't drink anything until I get home, only have my breakfast afterwards as well. Go there really hungry though :D

    You keep doing what you're doing if it works for you!!!

    I dont have anything on weigh in day, but I get weighed just gone 9am (straight after school run) so its normal for me not to have breakfast by that time.

    If it was in the evening I think I'd do what you do. Although as long as you do the same each week. the loss will still be the same.

    Aww thank you for your concern linznel!!
    I am getting by trying to be strong for my daughters sake to be honest but the future is looking bright for now. I am in a very peaceful state at the moment if that makes sense, if a bit stressed, but I am trying to ignore that :)

    How are you getting on sweetie, it's not easy at all is it???!!

    glad you guys are going ok. i get weighed in the evening so i save my final shake for afterwards but other than that i carry on as normal and figure that the amount of water i drink will balance out, ha. oh. and i stop drinking a couple of hours before to give myself chance to wee :D

    I got weighed at 1930 after 2 shakes, 1 soup and 4 litres of water. Guess that explains only 8lbs lost in the first week!

    The only problem with that is you have to do it every week. The benefit of the lack of water and tetra will only show up the first week you do it, but you'll have to stick with it otherwise you'll have a lower weightloss week.

    Much better IMO to just do what you always do. That way, you get a true reading for that time of day and don't have to adjust anything from then on.:cool:
