    You weigh less in the morning because when your body
    converts food materials to energy, CO2 and water vapour are released as waste products - and are expelled from the body (that's why when you breath on glass condensation appears). If you think about it - this is happening all night - so a fair amount of water leaves your body. A third of the body's water loss occurs at night - and can amount to about 2 or 3lbs.

    hmmmm.............very interesting info. I didn't know this. So, even if you don't urinate before morning, we are still expelling water with our breathing? ?

    because your body weight fluctuates +/- five pounds over the course of a day ...

    Just weigh yourself once a day if you're a daily weigher, preferably in the morning...

    Because it is all water weight. What the person above said also we sweat all the time you're going to lose weight from water and once your food is digested. You can weight up to 5lbs more end of the day. Always weight yourself when you wake up on a empty stomach after the bathroom to give you a reliable reading.
