Does any one else. . .
 
Now let me preface this by saying, as far as I know, I am NOT OCD.

When I weigh, I wait until after a trip to the potty, but before I bath or put on lotion. (The extra moisture probably weighs something.:stars:) NO jewelry, even put on contacts rather than wear glasses - ounces of difference between the two. . . I would weigh without corrective lenses at all if I could see the scale!

There are actually more rituals I go through, but you might think I'm strange if I shared them all. Does anyone else want to share? Come on, It will definitely make me feel better to know I'm not the only one.:o

I'm a hand washing freak but I do not wash my hands before I get on the scale lol

uahsoj 02-17-2013 11:26 AM

I brush my hair because the few strands that come out must weigh something! I feel almost as silly posting this as I do when I brush before weighing.

I hadn't thought about the glasses/contact thing though, lol.

:rofl: hehe that is too funny, I've got long hair too and I've sometimes wondered how much it weighs.
Yeah, I wait till I've been to the bathroom, before I eat or drink anything in the morning, and I only wear underwear.

Ditto! :goodpost:

I will absolutely not have a shower and wash my hair before weighing in, the wet hair will definately affect it!

snowmop 02-17-2013 01:15 PM

LOL! Yes I do, but that's all. As soon as my feet hit the floor I go pee, take off my pj's and hop on the scale.

Lol! I go potty, strip down to T-shirt and panties and weigh! Pj bottoms weigh TO much to chance weighing in them! Lol!!

bprieto 02-17-2013 01:43 PM

I am feeling better with each comment!

Julie1972 02-17-2013 01:59 PM

LOL! I thought I was the only one with a morning weight ritual! I only weigh first thing in the morning and I do it naked to ensure consistency. I also tend to weigh myself a few times as my scale has occasional fluctuations. I wish I could limit myself to once a week but I am way too obsessed with the number for that!

Jrw85705 02-17-2013 03:34 PM

And right before you step on the scale---exhale completely!

I too will take off the Pajama bottoms. Fleece is heavy. Yes?

Hot Tamale 02-17-2013 04:20 PM

I absolutely have to go to the bathroom first, take off all my clothes, and also take out my ponytail scrunchie! I also get off and on a few times to make sure the first time wasn't a fluke - or a mistake depending on what it says. Last, but not least, once I even cut my nails hoping for a loss! :p

Kittee 02-17-2013 04:21 PM

When I weigh, I have to be butt naked, dry hair, take off wedding ring, before I eat and after I tinkle. You are not alone!

lol right! I move mine around several times.

trishthedish 02-17-2013 04:59 PM

Morning, after potty, before food or drink, dry hair, pajamas on but slippers off.

My scale is in my garage and there is a window in which I am visible to a neighbor, so there is never nekkid weighing.

sya_unit 02-17-2013 05:21 PM

This is funny. I do it take off all but panties. Then I weigh. Then if I have a BM before I get dressed I weigh again. LOL.

Kimberli33 02-17-2013 06:27 PM

Wow:stars: we are all crazy...lol

zombiegoat2000 02-17-2013 06:40 PM

I haven't tried that!

focus83 02-18-2013 06:25 AM

hahah same here, potty, naked and best average weight after so many hop ons hahah.

Britt1975 02-18-2013 06:44 AM

I average between three weights.

My first weigh in happens after I pee, remove my hair band and change from pjs to shorts and a t-shirt. I've started weighing on the Wii board, because it gives me the closest weight to the doctor's office scale. Unfortunately, my living room (where the Wii is) has a huge picture window, so - no nekkid weighing for me. I always make sure the Wii board is placed in precisely the same place (lined up with pattern markings on the floor.)

Then I do however much Wii Fit-ing I have time for (between 10 and 30 minutes) by now... other things are ... moving - so I go take care of that, then come back and weigh again.

Finally, I shower, dry my hair, put on a very light robe, and weigh for the final time.
