Week two - how much does wet hair weigh?

Tuesday, February 19, 2013

This morning I ate and showered and then remembered to weigh myself. I weigh .6 more than last week!

I did hurt my back and my ankle and I did eat poorly on one day, but I was very good all the other six days.

I stood there on the scale wondering how much my breakfast weighed, how much my wet hair weighed and whether I should deduct a pound or two or three? I have lots of hair... in fact, I could lose three or four pounds by getting a bob cut right now. Seriously, I must have wasted several minutes calculating this. Finally, I stepped off the scale.

I have a microbiology exam today I should be worrying about instead! I'll get on the scale again in a day or two before I shower and eat when I won't be tempted to fudge the numbers.

    I would say that wet hair weighs 5 lbs. Here, could you hold my gum while I weigh-in.

You are funny! I imagine it could weigh more, but the scale will drop eventually, wet hair or dry will become moot.

    I have done that before. Stepped on the scale before a shower and after and there is about a .5 pound difference just from all of the water.
So in fact you must have stayed the same.
Best of luck to you.

    Here's hoping your numbers and lower the next time you step on a scale. emoticon
