We've all seen the Post (Why do you weigh less after a shower?)
because you are Warmer!!! WOOO HOOO
Back in School if any of you took Chemistry you might remember that they always said to let objects cool to room temperature Before you weigh them.
I never knew Why... BUT This link below explains it well!
I take it that putting the scale in the oven to warm it up a bit is a no-no, right? (Don't worry.... just kidding.)
So.... I should weigh less when (a) I've come from a hot shower; (b) I've been toasting in the sunshine; (c) the air conditioner is broken; (d) in the summertime; and (e) during hot flashes.
Well, good to know.
I KNEW I wasn't overweight ... I'm just under-hot!!!!

Shoot, I weigh myself first thing in the morning after pee pee time and shower time (yes, sometimes I do both at once. I'm a multitasker!) On top of that I do it butt naked (no mirror in sight, thank god!) So I guess I am a big stinkin' cheater!!!
Well, to confirm what I already knew from my Chem 101 course, I did a little research on pee weighing more than water. Urine weighs more than water because urine contains substances like sodium, potassium, and chloride, which water does not. This makes urine weigh more than the same amount of water. So I still think that someone is pissing in the shower... aaaannnd maybe the temperature of the surrounding air mass around the scale is causing this phenomenon (pa tee pa tee pee, mah na mah na).
My question is: Do you lose weight when you fart? Google my question; you'll be surprised that there is..., I mean, by the answer! Man, I "crack" myself up sometimes!
I love this post!!! You guys made my day. My son was really pushing me this morning starting the day on a bad note, and then like always I get on this site to log and read or whatever and you guys make my day so much better. Please forgive the run-on. XD
