What I Learned from Weighing Myself 15 Times in a Day

Have you ever wondered just how much your weight may flux through a given day? Beth weighed herself fifteen times in a single day and discovered an eight pound spread. Her data suggests that being consistent about the timing, apparel and bathroom visits is critical to getting a ‘true’ weight.

Via LifeHacker:

140.3 pounds at 9:16am: I step on the scale for the first time. I’ve just woken up. I’m wearing light pajamas.

138.9 pounds at 9:19am: After going to the bathroom. Apparently my bladder can hold at least 1.4 pounds of urine. Well, that’s a new thing I learned.

141.6 pounds at 9:23am: Fully dressed, in jeans and shoes. This is how I’ll weigh myself for the rest of the day, because I’m not getting naked every time I want to step on the scale.

143.2 pounds at 9:24am: Oops, forgot my hoodie. That’s 4.3 pounds of clothing in total.
