He weighed himself every night before bed and then weighed himself every morning at about 5 pounds more than the previous day's start. He used the weight set day and night for weeks; and was ready to file a complaint to the company until his wife told him he had a horrible midnight snack attack every which John replied, "But I only ate 5 pork chops, two gallons of ice cream and drank half a keg of beer..."
