30-Somethings - How do you weigh?

View Full Version : How do you weigh?

06-24-2009, 12:15 PM

First thing in the morning. Naked. After going to the bathroom but before taking a shower or exercising (I don't want to count sweating as weight loss, and I don't want to weigh wet hair).

I won't weigh after I've had anything to eat or drink. I won't weight later in the day. (Although I sometimes weigh for fun right before going to bed. I lose about 3 pounds while I sleep. The evening weight is never recorded, though.)

How about you guys? What's your scale routine?

Ditto...to a tee!!

I gotta MAKE MYSELF put up my scale and stop weighing every day, cause its driving me insane. MUST DO THIS TODAY!

I usually have two cups of coffee befrore I weigh. I know I should probably hop on before, but I'm useless til that caffiene kicks in. :cofdate:

After I pee, lol! I'm usually wearing a t-shirt & shorts... and haven't had anything to eat or drink yet...

Exactly as you do, Rebound....

06-24-2009, 05:23 PM
Exactly like you, Rebound, 'cept I nurse the baby (empty about 6oz out there!) and hold my breath hoping that my lungs will act as ballasts!! :))

I weigh myself twice a week, Tuesdays and Thursdays, in the morning just after I get up. Always in my underwear.

06-24-2009, 06:00 PM
I weigh just about the same as you Rebound, but I wear my bra & panties.

in the morning after I go to the bathroom in little or no clothes. This isn't to say that I don't weight myself more than once which I know that I shouldn't but that's the one that I take as the official weight.

I get up, pee, then take off my pj pants and weigh in my t shirt and undies. I exhale while getting on the scale (hey, air weighs something, right!). Sometimes if it seems too high, I will weight again after I have, um, pooped, which is usually later in the morning. Sometimes that makes a difference, sometimes not, but I take the lower number when I do weight pre and post poop!

I do the exact same as you, Rebound, to the letter....I refuse to have on a stitch of clothing. I have weighed myself at night and again the next morning to see the difference. I average about -2lbs overnight.

I am the same as you Rebound. I'm on a new thing where I'm trying to only do it twice a week, Weds. and Sunday, Sunday being the official day.

I weigh the same as you Rebound. I don't even have water first. If I can managed to "go" first, that's even better. LOL

Just like you. I weigh everyday and before I eat or drink anything.

Well, since I moved I havent gotten my scale out LOL so I just weigh myself whenever I go to my grandma's house! LOL But when I have my scale out I weigh in the AM after going potty! So I guess pretty much the same as everyone else!

I get up go to the bathroom and then hop on the scale with clothes on,

I weigh in my birthday suit in the AM after I use the restroom and move around a bit to let everything settle in place.

For "official" WI, in the am, naked, no shower, nothing to eat or drink, and after I've gone to the bathroom (both;)). I'll get on the scale through out the day sometimes. It helps me to see the fluctuations in my weight after eating, working out and all of that. So I dont freak out about it, I guess.

Same here!

I guess I weigh like the majority! Naked in the morning after I pee, before I take a shower or exercise. I also step on occasionally at night and never count it and it's usually about 2 lbs different from the morning weigh in. I only record my weight once a week on Thursday.

I always weigh myself first thing in the morning, right after I wake up. I get up, go pee, get naked and then weigh myself.

I weigh myself now and then...not too often or I get a bit obsessed and it drives me bonkers.

I absolutely HATE getting weighed at the doctor's office in the late afternoon, with all my clothes on...it's so depressing and I always weigh at least 5lbs more than my home scale! :eek:
