Sederberg family weight loss secret

Trish got us a nice digital scale a few weeks back with some of our gift certificate money at Bed, Bath, & Beyond. Since we don't have any reading material in the bathroom, when I think "bathroom," the only item that keeps "boring!" from popping into my mind is our scale. It really is the only interesting thing to do in there, so I've gotten in the habit of weighing myself at nearly every opportunity.

After a few weeks of weighing myself at night, in the morning, after a shower, and other times, I'd like to share a secret. The best way to lose weight is to sleep!

That's right! Last night, I weighed 198 (unfortunately, my all time high). I went to bed, woke up, went for a very short wake up jog, and weighed myself again. I was down to 192.5! That is 5.5 lbs of weight loss from basically just sleeping. Trish didn't go for a jog this morning, and she weighed 3 lbs less than when she went to bed.

So anyway, maybe we should be a little more skeptical of what all those so-called experts tell us to do: eat healthy, exercise, etc. From now on, I'm just going to hit the hay when I'd like to "lighten up."

PS This works! Go ahead and try it yourself, then feel free to report on our blog below!
PPS After talking with Trish last night, I realized that this is a rather deadpan post, and since we just sent our our thank you notes from our wedding with a link to our blog in it, this may be a little confusing if people outside the normal traffic are reading. While all the "facts" inside this post are true, my conclusions are a bit tongue-in-cheek.

Matt, I always weigh myself first thing in the morning because I've been aware for some time now, that that is when you weigh the least. And yes, just before bed at night is when you weigh the most. Don't ask my why - I don't know. But, I do know it's true. Even though I have been aware of this strange fact for some time, I certainly didn't learn of it at the "tender" age that you are right now. You are way ahead of me - in this regard and many others. Love, Sumner
P.S. You (or I) should research why this is the case and then report back.
