Question what is my weight

Crazy question -- I just recently purchased a digital scale and my weight seems to fluctuate by 4 or 5 pounds daily. I've tried weighing myself at the same time each day (morning or right before I go to bed), but the difference in weight seems crazy. Does anyone else experience this?

Make sure u stand still on the scale and try to look straight ahead....distribute your weight evenly on your legs...also you should way 2 hours after lunch for more accuracy, although weighing each morning should give you consistent results. If you are weighing in the morning, I've found it make a difference if you've been to the toilet yet. Also make sure u dont have a shower or anything first...with me it seems to add a bit.

Thanks for your reply. I don't know why I'm having such inconsistency. I really can't weigh myself 2 hours before lunch because I'm at work and I'm not carting a scale there. Ha. But, I do try to do so as soon as I get up. I don't know why there is such a difference. In one week, I'll have 4 different weights - they're always about the same so I don't think it's weight gain or loss, but I was just curious if anyone else experienced this. That's why when I hear someone say they lost a pound I'm always confused. I can tell you roughly what I weigh, but it's not exact. Oh well .... Thanks again for your reply!
