Cheating the Scale

In a recent survey by a British-based diet website, about 3,000 women were asked how they try to cheat the scale.  

50% Weigh themselves naked
40% Go to the bathroom first
10% Hold their breath
3%  Stand on one leg
3% Wait for a full moon

Let's see....

Weight themselves naked - always.
Go to the bathroom first - of course.
Hold their breath - yep.
Stand on one leg - I don't think I can stand on one leg on my scale. I may need to try that!
Wait for a full moon - I can honestly say I've never done this one.

I can also claim to use the following methods to cheat the scale: haircut, shaving legs, only weighing early in the morning. :)


  1. I never heard about the full moon - must be something about the gravitation pull...I actually breath out when I weigh..somehow I think I am removing stuff from my body - ergo I will weigh less! :)

  2. I don't think some of those are cheating!! Of course you go to the bathroom first...

    One that I can see as cheating...
