    I weighed myself yesterday after breakfast and I was 188. Woke up today, and I was 183 WTF? I know it might be water weight but still, how the hell do you loose 5 pounds of it after not working out, eating a shitload, and drinking over a gallon of water?

    did you weigh yourself before breakfast this morning? c

    could be a function of what you ate before you went to sleep the night before as well.

    Yeah I weighed myself before breakfast this time, but still. I ate 1.5 cups of low fat cottage cheese, and some humus at about 2AM last night (this morning).

    depending on how much water you hold, you can lose 3-5lbs at night. Its usually said you should go to sleep the night before weighing in at a meet a little heavy because you expell water through breathing when you sleep. And some people will sweat in dreams.
