It's helpful to remember OTHER measurements: inches, blood pressure, feelings of well-being, etc.

Ditto! Oooh, I really don't trust that scale (shakes fist in air)

Was just curious whether anyone had experienced something similar or had an explanation for why/how this could happen. Still seems physically impossible to me and must be a technical glitch.

Definitely do not go by what any scale says, especially one which is obviously possessed, like mine :)

Weight is weird. I've heard others say they weigh less after a work-out where they've been sweating a lot. I always seem to weigh more. And now that I've started weight-lifting the weight is really going on. I'm thinking of forgetting about weight for awhile.

your body weight is a finicky thing to be sure..............some days your up and others your down for no rhyme or reason........it is a well trained machine and can breakdown most things we eat....the furnace works at its own rate depending on the fuel we use.......unless your a scientist just go with the flow and weigh in in a regular basis once a week/month etc and leave it at that..........i am sure the answer is more complicated than we al all understand............

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

I totally agree with you, Don. And I never weigh myself more than once a week (Sundays being my usual weigh-in days). I only did this before & after breakfast weigh-in thing today out of curiosity.
But surely it is physically impossible for a kilo of weight to simply vanish into thin air in the space of 3 minutes. I want to put it down to an error in the scale but I meticulously weigh myself twice everytime, moving the scale to a different position on the floor to make sure the readings match up.

I find that there are LOTS of weight loss hiccups such as this along the way. Don't ask me how they happen...not a clue!

Rather than drive myself to distraction over them I prefer to stick with a weekly weigh-in. :-)

I know weight is an odd thing that sometimes defies logic, but something happened to me today that I never thought possible and I'm hoping someone can shed a little light on it for me.

After going to the toilet this a.m. I weighed myself, then ate a breakfast which I also weighed.
My breakfast came in at 97 grams so after eating it (straight after, mind you) I stepped on the scale again expecting to be about 100 grams heavier. But I was ONE WHOLE KILO LIGHTER.

Has anyone ever experienced anything like this before?
I know that the digestion process burns calories, but surely not that many in the space of seconds.

Thanks in advance!
