When do you weigh in?

Postby kate_turner2000 » Wed Nov 08, 2006 8:47 am

Hi all :)

i know this is probably somewhere else on the forum but there are a lot of new members that might like to add to it.
was just interested in knowing -

*if you weigh in naked or with clothes on
*what time of day you weigh in
*are you scales located in the bathroom on tiles? carpet? etc

just thought it would be interesting to compare :)

I weigh myself first thing in the morning (after going to the toilet and before eating breakfast). Most of the time, just in my underwear, but sometimes wear my pj's (this is embarassing... but I weighed my pj's on my kitchen scales :shock: so I can just subtract their weight if I can't be bothered getting undressed :oops: Pedantic, or lazy, I don't know!)
The scales are in the bathroom, on tiles :wink:

I'm now weighing in about once a month, after a workout, in gym clothes, at the gym (so I can't weigh naked!). It's a pretty fancy/accurate scale, it's on carpet though.

OH yeah Kate, I think Mandie would be the star of the papers that is for sure!!!! LOL

I always weigh in around 9am (I find I weigh less at this time...tried, tested and proven!! :shock: ) My scales are on my polished floor in the dining room and yep sometimes I weigh in with just my bra and undies on ( :oops: ) but hey no one is here at that time anyway!!! LOL

My weigh in is first thing before breaky and naked. I started out doing this as I used to weigh in on Fridays and I did it just before stepping in the shower so I continued the tradition on Saturday.

Although anyone weighing themselves using those BIA scales for Body Fat the morning isn't the best time for that reading as you are dehydrated. So for body fat I do it during the week after work, basically when I remember :roll: usually Wednesday or Thursday before the Saturday weigh in. Never sure just how accurate this all is but well I seem to get either the same or lower reading each week so I figure I'm doing something right!

My scales have the BIA for body fat too. I normally have a go of that after work as well. I find I get a better reading then because my feet are all warm and moist after being in my horrible shoes all day - yuck! Started noticing some lower numbers too which is good.

I have now moved my weigh-in day to Monday, to coincide better with Christmas, as Christmas day is a Monday and I want to be at goal or close to it on Christmas day - weird I know :P .

I weigh-in when I first wake up, after going to the loo and before I eat or drink anything, and I weigh-in naked. My scales are on tiles in the bathroom. I did try on carpet but it said I weighed less than I actually did, so I know that for my scales, an accurate reading is on tiles (hard surface).

Once a month for me when I go to the doctors (to keep a tab on the blood pressure). That is heaps often enough, I don't think I'd like scales at home as I'd always be on them & probably getting discouraged.

I usually have an AM appointment so I don't eat prior & just wear shorts & T shirt.

I don't own any scales, i will not give in to the temptation of weighing myself every morning, how depressing!!!!
Once a week at the chemist is enough for me. Just knowing my clothes are looking better on me is pretty good :lol:
