    Hey not sure if this has been posted before but I wanted to ask when you weigh yourself do you weigh yourself in the morning or in the evening? I'm different weights I literally go up by 2.5lb in the evening! Not sure which to go by x

    Same here. I wake up thursday mornings, go to the toilet, strip off and jump on the scales then I shower.

    Your weight can go up during the day - I asume because your body is still digesting the food. But I have found the next morning its back to the same or its gone down more. (im terrible at weighing myself everyday :-/ )

    Always in the morning and preferably after I've been to the loo, but that depends on whether my bowels decide to perform before I have to head off for work or not!

    It really doesn't matter which one you go for - just as long as you stick to the same time week-in week-out your losses will be accurate. And that is really what matters rather than the actual number on the scales.

    Ohhhhh my liiiiiife yes! :p :D Every morning first thing, then after first, uh, loo appearance :eek: (which usually corresponds with end of first coffee), then various points thru the day... Also if I wake in the night for the loo I cant be guaranteed not to hop on :eek:

    Also each 'weigh in' usually means 3 goes on the scales to average out, so they're quite variable... im quite insistent on 2 identical readings before Ill accept it :D

    Still at the end of the day I accept the readings in the week have no guarantee on the weekly reading. I do think it probably helps my intake if Im having a slow week tho :)

    At our class there is a lady who takes an exercise class before image therapy and then one after image therapy.

    A few weeks ago she commented on the fact that we weigh less in a morning than any other time of the day. She stated that the reason is you lose upto 2 litres of fluid overnight, that is why sometimes especially in winter your windows in your bedroom may be steamed up in the morning.

    At the moment I have to weigh in the evening which I hate. It's really just how much you've eaten in a day rather than how much you've actually lost.
    In a few months I'm going to be able to join a group in the morning YAY.

    I belong to a group that weighs in on a Monday evening - it's not good!!! I have to really behave myself over the weekend otherwise the result would be bad! As it's in the evening as well I watch myself gain weight during the day. I still eat/drink during the day - some of the group go on a fast beforehand. Really looking forward to tomorrow (not!).
