Why is it that in the Evening right before you goto bed, you weigh yourself... and it's say 222.0... and yet in the morning (no restroom break or anything yet) your weight has dropped, say 219.0. where has the 3lb's gone? i know i'm not sweating 3lb's away while i sleep... i keep it fridged in my room

    Water loss from sweating and breathing.

    You will breathe and sweat out a fair amount of moisture in the night. And fuel in your body (carbs, fats) will have been convereted to energy and burned up, keeping you alive and warm. If you also take a piss, then there's some extra weight lost. And so on.

    yep, unless you tend to breathe, sweat, urinate, or move any limbs while you are awake.

    My weight can fluctuate by a stone over the course of 24hrs (I am 22 stone 6 ATM )

    everyone says it is down to poor hydration practices , but I don't agree myself as I drink more water than anyone I know , even by bodybuilders standards

    My waist goes from 33 to 30 overnight, I must carry an absurd amount of water on my stomach or something.

    i was not aware that, that amount of water moisture was passed though your system while asleep. interesting indeed

    and as far as "passing wind", would'nt keeping it in... actually make you more light? i mean it is a gas

    My weight can change 6kg during a day. Not that abnormal really, I drink about 4-5litres and eat about 2-3kg of food so it all adds up!

    The reason your waist changes is because of the food you eat I think, as in, if your stomachs full of food, its gonna cause your waist to be bigger as well!

    Yeah, mine also goes up by about 7lb a day but often as much as a stone. As already said, it's just sweat and calories burnt during sleep. In the day you generally top up with food more often than your average 8hrs sleep. Be sure to weigh at the same time each day if you wanna plot your results accurately.
