    Curious night retention - anyone out there sharing this?

    I am a powerlifter and all athletes "know" you weight less in the morning. Not me: I usually weigh up to 2lbs more in the morning and gradually lose them during the first three hours after waking up (even AFTER having breakfast and even if I stimulate bowel emptying before eating).
    This night-time retention defies my knowledge and research strategies and not even my physicians can figure out why it happens.
    I have all sorts of genetic "peculiarities" - I'm hyperinsulinemic, hormone levels are strange, many of which favor me as an athlete.
    But night retention sucks because I am a light lifter and therefore my weigh in is always in the mornings at meets.
    Anyone has the same "anomaly"?

    Yeah I'm a chick!! :)

    Right! And I compete at the 123lb category!
    Which means this night retention SUCKS!!!!

    any ideas??....

    (I'm laughing my a** off because there is always this confusion regarding my name and people probably imagine a benching midget - I'm small for a woman, just picture that as a guy...)
