Question Your true weight??

To get your true weight do you weigh yourself at a specific time of day, with or with out shoes/clothes?? I am just curious if I am weighing myself right Thanks!

Doesn't matter how, just make sure you do it the same way each time. I get weighed in the morning after peeing and before eating. Once in awhile I take a peak later in the day and have seen it go up as much as 3 pounds.

So there is no right or wrong way as long as you do it the same way, same time every day right? Okay - I did mine at the end of the day before bed with all my clothes but no shoes.

As long as you are consistent with time and dress it doesn't matter when. I weigh in the morning after I pee, before I do anything else, with no clothes. Of course tomorrow I get weighed at the doctor's office after bath and probably some water with clothes on, so that will be rough...

If you choose to weight yourself mid-day accounting for about the same amount of food and liquid in your stomach every day, that's fine, but remember caffeine can add a pound or two, so if you've had a latte on a specific day and weigh yourself, it may skew up.

I think morning is the best time; then you don't have to worry about whether that sandwich or that Diet Coke making the scale lie.

Every morning, right after waking up, after you pee, without clothes.

The lowest and most consistent numbers are after you wake up and go to the bathroom, without clothes. That's what I do.

Even so, you might experience a lot of daily fluctuation. A few pounds up or down is normal for me.

Early morning schedule... get up, pee, weigh myself (naked) and make oatmeal. Its so hard later in the day to make numbers consistent (eg the weight of your clothes, food/drink, etc)

I find this works best. No interference from clothing, what you ate that day, water weight, blah blah blah.
