    I get up , use the toilet, strip and turn on the shower. I weigh after stripping and while waiting for the shower to heat up, it only takes a minute and that's all I need.

    Did I just stumble in to chit chat?

    Haha my thoughts exactly :laugh:

    I noticed some people weigh AFTER the shower, my hair is thick, long and holds water like a sponge! I would definitely weigh more if I weighed after getting out of the shower.

    I weigh after the shower but try to dry my hair a bit before getting on the scale.

    Basically it's after bathroom, exercise, bathroom again if I need to, shower, dry off, weigh nekkid (fitbit on the counter but I absolutely walk from the bathroom to the kitchen where the scale is while holding it :)).

    Bahaha I don't walk anywhere without my fitbit. I too hold on to it while walking from the shower to the bedroom, a whole 10 feet :wink: As for the hair thing, if i have a shower at 9am and don't blow dry it, it'll still be damp underneath at 4pm :confounded:

    The only flat surface in/on my house is the back patio. Spanish tile looks great, not good surface for a scale though. Patio is a flat slab.

    So, I weigh clothed. Although, I don't think my neighbors can see into my private backyard. Still not taking any chances lol.

    Just wondering if anyone waits until they've done a number 2. before they step on the scales, and if so, does it make a big/little difference?

    Crap, I forgot to take my Fitbit off! What do you think, 1lb or 2lbs? That's what I'm hoping! I cannot take a step without my Fitbit for sure. I love that thing.

    Duh! Altho I'm not sure I weighed before and after. It sure feels like it should make a difference sometimes tho!

    Not the pound I hoped for, but maybe 1/4 pound. I was told by a nurse that your true weight would be fasted, 2-4 hours after waking, and naked. Who has time for all that?

    In pjs. Only clothing that really adds significantly IMO are jeans or heavy shoes. But then I round up or down to the nearest pound too, so I'm wild and crazy like that.

    I have a spaghetti strap baby doll style nightgown (knee length), in a thin material thats adds 3/4 lb!

    I'm not going to force it but if it's in the chamber ready to fire I'll weigh after.

    Not noticed any difference.

    I weigh myself first thing in the morning with my pjs on, which is just an oversize t-shirt. I'm pretty consistent with wearing one of two or three t-shirts to bed which all weigh about the same so they don't affect my weight fluctuations on any given day.
