Gain weight in the shower?
Saturday, September 15, 2012
Read this blog on a maintainer's [NELLJONES] page:
"I was telling my son, the Registered Dietician, about how much my weight bounces every day. I'm at maintenance so not trying to lose, yet my weight just pops around. He told me to weigh myself before and after a shower. I gained .6 pounds just from the shower and body lotion! That is how much water my skin absorbed in just a few minutes. And, of course, it came off by morning. I know I swell in humid weather, but who knew from a shower??"
I know I hate to weigh at the Dr's. It's always fully dressed, after a shower and breakfast. Sometimes after lunch too. You can't win. Last weigh in at the Doc's was 215…a week later, before my shower with only a few sips of coffee in me, it was 206. So the clothes can't weigh 9 pounds can they? Must be the shower!!!
