I weigh myself in the morning like the author, and my observations actually made the office get a new scale. When they pushed back (I go in for monthly shots), I stated nope I am right

  1. I weigh myself in the morning and here is the pattern

They stated how do you know …. I stated I have a measuring scale we use for precision feeding of horses and we measured what two 1 gallon bottles of water are. Water weighs 8.4lb … so two independent gallons and one summed showed my scale “yesterday” to weight 8.4 and 16.8.

Your scale … just weighed me off by 10lb.

Geez …. that makes sense was the response … .

The real reality though is if you do weigh yourself your body will flucuate based upon the humidity, the amount of water (food and real), hormones, sleep amount and if you are sick. So one can’t assume the same number will be the same, let alone exercise and clothes …
