    Must admit, in the past I have always tried to eat 'light' on weigh in days.
    However, I rejoined SW last week (again) and I have promised myself that I will eat normally on weigh in day, otherwise it just makes me miserable!
    I'm sure as long as we do the same each week, it should be ok.

    I do that too... I won't use any syns until after WI and try to eat more SF foods than normal, although really, I don't think it makes that much difference. But i just can't help myself!

    ha yep I think that this is a pretty common thing. It used to take me ages to decide what to have for lunch on weigh day going round the kitchen deciding what would weigh least! Now i'm at target though I don't bother so much and it's really nice not to dread Wednesdays because I would never have me afternoon cuppa and cereal bar when I was getting weighed!

    I weigh myself first thing in the morning to avoid this :)
    And with no clothes on to avoid the which-clothes-weigh-less debate ;)
    I'm not long-sighted enough to get nervous the day before, so my eating habits don't change all week. This way I think I get a fair result, otherwise I would do silly things like not drink as much throughout the day (I drink about 4-5 litres of water a day, and that's 8-10lbs right there - although I also wee a lot TMI!) and starve myself until after weigh-in which in the long term can't be good :)

    On the day, yes it can make a huge difference. To your overall long-term weight loss, not one bit :D

    I did this one week when I had been naughty, but was desperate for a loss to keep me motivated. I didn't eat or drink all day, felt light-headed and ill, but managed to scrape a 0.5lb loss.

    Now to maintain my loss rate, I have to be careful every Thursday, and have only a couple glasses of water, light breakfast and a piece of fruit for lunch! Crazy! :eek:

    I go on holiday next week, so thankfully I will be able to put a stop to this pattern while away (as I expect to gain anyway).
