I'd rather just wake up, get on, get off and get it over with.
Yes, definitely! I think that is one reason why not being consistent of when and under what conditions we can weigh ourselves can make us batty. When I was first trying to figure out how often to weigh myself I used to do it several times a day. The results were very varied based on if I was wearing clothes and how heavy they were, how much I had already eaten or drunk that day, whether or not I had had a bowel movement (I hope that wasn't too much TMI), if I had exercised, etc.. I think that weighing in the morning helps because your body has had some time to settle from the day before. In fact if I forget to weigh myself in the morning before I eat I don't weigh myself at all that day. I know it won't be an accurate comparison to my weight the day before.
I did find though that doing experiments with weighing myself more often gave me enough perspective to be comfortable with weight fluctuations from day to day or hour to hour.
