100 lb. Club - Difference between your AM and PM weigh-in's?

Quick question.. For those who weight themselves daily, or several times a day - what do you find is your normal fluctuation between AM/Empty-Stomach weight and PM/Apres-Dinner weight?

For me, in the morning after I've peed out my gallon of water weight from all my salty soup, I'm about 216, but in the evenings, I can go up to 222 or more. I do drink a lot of water (sometimes 10 glasses or more) and eat salty things like soup, but 6lbs?!? Seems absurd!

So.. What's normal? :?:

For me it usually ranges between 2-5 lbs. This assumes similar clothing and no shoes for both weigh-ins. Thus, although I seem to be a scale-a-holic, I try to weigh only in the morning.

I can easily fluctuate 5lbs throughout the day. It's one of the reasons that I like to keep myself below a certain cutoff. Eg. Right now as long as I am at least 2lbs below 220 I don't worry about the weight.

I can fluctuate from 1 to 6 pounds depending on what I've put in my mouth that day. I know for me that salty foods make me shoot up more than anything else.

My usual fluctuations are 2-6 lbs. However, I've even seen a few fluctuations at 8, but those aren't too common.

I am 3lbs, dead on, every single day. So, whatever I weigh last thing at night, I KNOW I will be 3lbs lighter first thing in the morning. It's a good measure.

Mine is usually 5 lbs, although it varies from 2 - 6 pounds.

2-3 unless I binge, then more like 6 or more.

I'm always 2 pounds more in the evening than in the mornings.

Saw this on the main page (latest forum posts) and wanted to reply, too. I'm usually 2-3 # heavier at night than first thing in the morning, though there have been times where it's been 5# (usually after eating out...hmmm...).

I guess it's pretty normal.

Generally 3lbs, but it's been as high as 8. I weigh every morning and I really only care about the morning weight, but I weigh at night too, (just for entertainment).

I've been as high as 10lb over at night ... but that's depending on what I've eaten, if I've worked out, if I've gone to the bathroom, etc.

usually it's 3-5lb
