Having nothing to do on a Sunday morning after I read the paper, I decided to weigh my cup of coffee. I wasn't interested in a calorie count. I use a regular cup size of coffee, not those giant ones used by the true coffee addict.
The weight was 12 OZ. (US) So a couple of cups of coffee before I start my days come to nearly a pound and a half. That's before I drink any water and before I eat.

That is why I found it better to weigh weekly and ignore short plateaus. When I figured out that perhaps 5 pounds of daily weight is governed by how much coffee I drink I can relax about short term weight fluctuations and just make sure that over the last couple weeks the Weight History table in FS in downward.

For ever it worth -

Full disclosure Just weighed in and to my dismay the scale shows 1.5 pound increase. However, as we all know, scales lie !

I think you need to try kitchen scales.Kitchen scales provide you weight of your coffee and other food items. You can also get the quantity of calories in your food by using kitchen scales .
