Curios: Do you weigh yourself naked or with clothes?

I've been weighing myself semi-naked since I started (I'll leave my undies and shirt on).

I use my sister-in-law's scale every week because I flung mine out the window in a state or rage in early July (ended up breaking a light pole on the street...thank God I didn't hit anyone).

Anyway, yesterday, there were too many people at her house, so I decided to weigh myself with clothes on and I was 4 lbs heavier than the week before. I had jeans and a turtleneck on. I'm sort of jeans and a turtleneck weight 4 lbs? I doubt it. Now I'm scared. I don't think I'll re-weight myself until next week or the week after.

    I weight nakey. Denim is heavy for sure. When I buy fabric (I sew) and I'm calculating shipping, I average 1 lb per yard that I'm buying, and you're probably wearing 3-5 yards of fabric, so it sounds about right

    It depends on the material but jeans weigh usually weigh 1 to 2 pounds and some are heavier. You may have weighed yourself at a different time of day also.

    I weigh myself first thing in the morning with just a light nightgown on, and before I have anything to drink or eat. For me this is the best time.

    I always weigh myself in my underwear. Jeans are really quite heavy. I wouldn't be afraid to reweigh myself without the jeans and turtleneck.

    Definitely without clothes - sometimes I have undies and a nightgown on, but pants/shirt/shoes usually I notice adds an extra 4-5 pounds for me. My shoes alone are 2 pounds.

    I weigh in the morning with my light jammies on. There are times I'll run to the kitchen naked to weigh myself; don't want to scare my kids. :laugh:

    Naked right before my morning shower. Clothes are heavy and can vary in weight too much. I would completely disregard the weigh-in with all those clothes.

    Always naked as when I wear clothes I can be 1-2lbs heavier not much but I want an accurate reading!

    You should always weigh yourself first thing in the morning after you empty your bladder. If you weigh yourself later during the day with clothes on it will show weight gain even though you haven't gained weight.

    I wear a pair of underwear and that's it.
    I don't have a real scale so I use the WiiFit where I can pick "How heavy my clothes are". Which is a horrible idea because I used to always say "Oh they weigh two pounds!" (Even if i was almost all naked)
    Lying to myself didn't get me anywhere.

    I weigh myself in my gym clothes with shoes on.

    Yes it probably weighs a few lb more than if I was naked.. but I figure my clothes weigh about the same each time.

    I am NOT stripping off naked in the gym!

    Panties and socks, at most - unless it's weigh in day at the gym, in which case I wear hoochie shorts and a camisole - no jewelry, no sunglasses, take my phone out of my pocket, etc =P

    Naked. First thing in the morning on the way into the shower. I've always read it's best to weigh yourself at the same time of day and wearing (or not wearing) the same thing. I know some people say they see a difference even depending on where they set the scale on the floor (I guess how flat it sits, etc). Mine sits in the exact same place, right beside the shower. I weigh myself on Sunday mornings usually (or sometimes other mornings if I'm anxious to see my progress because I'm having a really good week).
