How many of you weigh yourselves before and after you poop or pee? My best friend and I found out tonight that we both do, and my husband was just flabbergasted.

Be honest, it's just us here.

I'm so uncouth.

No... I can't say that I've ever done that. I have weighed myself before and after a workout but I've never really been tempted to know exactly how much waste material I'm putting out. Hey, if it works for you who am I to judge? Smile

I have to chime in here. I do. It's amazing how much our waste can affect us, especially when we get constipated.

Yes! I was surprised how much my morning pee weighed versus a poo!

I've done so once or twice and was equally amazed both times. Then proceeded to get into an argument with my boyfriend over which weight would be the proper one to use for a weigh-in: the before or after?

Of course, I said AFTER! Wink

I've done it, when I've thought I was done with my... umm... business and then realized 15 minutes later that I wasn't. If I haven't eaten yet that day, I'm giving myself the lowest weight possible! Even if I get there through slightly unladylike ways. =)

LOL, nope. I weigh-in weekly, and that's enough!
mini goals:
170 - 50 pounds gone! (reached October 2, 2010)
155 - no longer overweight! (reached January 22, 2011)
145 - 75 Pounds gone! (reached May 14, 2011)
135 - ultimate goal weight!

Follow my journey towards the kind life:

I definitely wait until after my 'morning business' to weigh myself. Since I noticed the difference between a before weigh-in and an after weigh-in, I have never looked back!
