I weigh myself at the gym with my workout clothes and tennis shoes on. I always had this idea that people don't see me naked, so why would I weigh myself naked? It might be a weird way of looking at things, but it works for me and keeps me consistent. Plus it gives me a little wiggle room. I guess it's like setting my alarm clock to run 15 minutes slow so that I think I'm late when I'm not.

I love that!

Same deal - in the morning before I get in the shower. Weighing in at night depresses me because it is usually about 3 pounds higher!

Yeah, when I weighed myself I used to do it in the morning after peeing, when I was naked.

Although when i was at my healthiest, I weighed myself ever Sunday, after my run... which made it as low as it could be because I would always be a little dehydrated.

I've been weighing myself daily since I started the McDougall MWL program more than two weeks ago. But I realize that I need to break myself of that habit. I get very discouraged if my weight doesn't go down or goes up.

I realized something this morning. I got on the scale and saw that I was half a pound higher than yesterday morning. I've been following the program very strictly, so there's no way I can *gain* weight on it. Then I noticed my hands. My rings are really tight this morning (they're usually quite loose). I'm retaining a lot of water. So that's it. I'm going to start weighing myself on Mondays and not let these fluctuations get me down.

I love this thread! I'm so glad I'm not the onlly OC weigher. I weigh myself every day before I pee in the AM, all nude, then again after - I told you I'm OC! - and at night before I go to bed. It's interests me to see how my "High" weight at night is lower than my "Low" a couple weeks ago. I'm thinking about starting a graph - glad to know I'm not the only one. Oh - I only count Thursday's weight - that's the weight I keep track of that determines if I'm losing or gaining.

I weigh myself in the morning and in my underwear, have never weighed myself fully clothed. I call that my "NET Weight".
The journey to a healthier me started on 02/01/07 at my highest 171...
