i weigh my self like 20 times a day, i LOVE to see how my body changes, it helps me track my weight loss better. i too have poop problems. i got every 3 days or so and its usually for 2 days im running to the bathroom. my poops usually weigh about 1-2 pounds, i have checked this after every poop, but its not just poop is your urine as well. so yes it is normal to weigh less after using the bathroom when peeing OR pooping. why else do you think they say to weigh yourself AFTER you pee in the mornings? your body is ejecting your digested good which is obviously going to change your weight. its like taking off all your clothes.

Just read the follow up replies since last night. OMG, still LOLing at this thread.

Of course I hope nothing is medically wrong and that she is not in major danger -- of course. But this thread is funny ...

I have come to notice this site, MFP, that we really do band together and become a community that doesn't seem phased by the TMI moments.

Um...having a bowel movement once a week is NOT healthy. I can just imagine all of the toxins that are sitting in your intestines/bowels, just waiting to make you sick! Ugh! Sounds like you need a good colon cleanse. And a new GI doc.

That's a good name for a 3 lb poop baby...... Plunger

It makes sense that you'd weigh less after pooping since the poo would weigh something and it was inside you, and now it's not.

This thread is just way too funny. But since we're on the topic of poo, I just pooed and now I feel so much better.

I only go about 2-3 times per week, but when I do there's quite a bit so it doesn't surprise me that you had a 3lb bowel movement. You really should incorporate more green veggies and fruits into your diet on a regular basis, though. It will definitely help. Hope you are able to find something to resolve this issue because it can be a pretty serious problem.

You should be going like everyday or Mayb you need more fiber in your diet or you should try a clonic. that would clean you out and im pretty sure you will weigh less afterwards

Unless you have some sort of weird anti-gravity colon, then yes, you weight less after pooping. laugh

I have bowel movements about 3-4 times a week and yet they are still large. I save them for when I'm at work or at Walmart because they have more powerful toilets.

I have pooping issues too! For me it's a lot of nerves. When I am stressed, my colon just. stops. Ugh, it's horrible! My record is 4.5lbs. There was a mercy flush involved. I take fibre supplements, and eat a tonne of fruits and veg and whole grains most days. Nothing helps.

Why did you weigh yourself before and after pooping?


Who doesn't? happy

Yes, the rest of us who shop at Walmart really appreciate this.

I don't know. It's probably something that can be computed somehow if you knew all the formulas. But I only got as far as Calc II. I know a couple of applied math PhD's.. I'll float this one past them and see if they can come up with some solution.


^^Funny^^

It's like giving birth to a little poo baby ; )
