Gaining weight without injesting anything?

Ok, so it doesn't really matter, I'm just curious about how it works. I can weigh in the morning then an hour later weigh again and have a higher number despite not eating or Drinking anything. Like I said, it's not anything I'm worried about as I trend down weekly, just thought it's weird how it happens like that every morning.

    Are you wearing the same thing? Is the scale on a hard level surface? How much more are you weighing?

    Exact same clothes. Yes level hard surface. And about a 1-2 lbs usually.

    Oh I know I'm not gaining. That's why it doesn't worry me. Just curious about how I works. Thanks everyone!

    Is it a battery powered scale? If your scale is doing weird things, sometimes it means the batteries are dying.

    Could be retraining a little water once you're up and moving around.

    My weight fluctuates so much daily, I threw my scales out.

    Sounds like you don't need to go to this extreme, because you seem to have a healthy mindset about it and not stressed over it.

    It's possible that you're just experiencing a fluctuation due to any of the reasons mentioned above, or it could just be your body going through stages of digestion.

    If there is that large a fluctuation without ingesting anything (assuming you haven't moved the scale), it could a sign that the batteries are dying and need to be changed.

    I have this happen all the time. I don’t worry about it since I know fluctuations are normal.

    You can't gain weight from time A to time B through retaining water if you haven't ingested any water in the meantime. You can't be retaining more water at a later time if you haven't given your body some more water to retain.

    The scale isn't working properly.

    Whoever disagreed with this, can you help us understand why? Where do the 2 extra pounds of water come from without drinking any water?
