    I get weighed on a morning at home in my underwear after going to the loo (tmi but iut's true lol) and I've ALWAYS done that. Anyway throughout the course of a day I usually put on around 2lbs through water etc and by official WI i'll obviously be heavier grr.

    Anyway which WI do you go by?

    Only asking as i have my drop in this aft and by my scales this morning I've lost 6lbs since tuesday and I just know it will only be about 4lbs by theirs lol.

    I just go by LLC scales. I get to obsessed with weighing myself and if I didnt see a loss I would get annoyed. I gave my scales to my mum so I get a surprise on my weigh in day.

    Emma, you may find that your scales aren't as good as theirs. I went through a fair amount of agonising with my first 3 weigh ins before I got my mum to take my scales to her house.

    Week one - I started off the same weight at home as I did in the WI (before I started that is). The next week mine showed me as having lost 8 or 9 pounds, but LL showed me as having lost 12.5. Week 2 I went to the WI feeling very down as I thought I'd lost 2 pounds at most. I actually lost 5.

    Get rid of them if you can, they can affect mood (if you're weight fluctuates up one day). I used to weigh 4 times a day (I didn't even wear the underwear for the morning one lol).
