I don't weigh myself unless I have gone potty and walked and worked out first.

    I do this, too, because I made an appointment with a trainer who could only see me after my usual workout session. I had an urgent need to go to the bathroom before we started. The first thing she did was weigh me without shoes, so I figured to see how much I had lost, I had to make conditions as similar as possible to that first weigh-in. I exercise, go to the bathroom, then weigh myself. (I have weighed myself with & without various sneakers so I know how much to subtract ---and don't need to bother to remove them.)

    When you weigh yourself after exercise you tend to weigh more because your muscles are retaining fluid

    Me, too. My husband thinks it's funny.
