People weigh more in the morning, after sleeping b/c of ‘dead weight’

Um…

Did I just hear that from someone at my office? Did I just hear that your weight ‘settles’ while you sleep so you should weigh yourself after being up and around for a while…?

This is right up there with the reasoning that cyclists use to drop weight on their bike. ‘Grams = ounces = pounds = suck’. I am not saying that I disagree with any of that, however saving 14 grams by upgrading to titanium bolts is pretty insignificant when the actual cyclist can drop 15 pounds by eating better.

If you weight settles or not isn’t really the issue – that does sound ridiculous though. The issue is that if you are making good choices about your diet, there is no reason to fear the scale.

No more looking for your lightest pair of underwear to get weighed in, no more forcing yourself to go the bathroom before the weigh in…. no more being ridiculous. Let’s just make healthy choices and let the scale say what it will. The scale is just one small tool to help us stay on track to being more healthy.
