I am away from home right now and don't have access to a scale. I feel definitely that I am retaining water. When I am home, I will be able to use a scale which gives an indication of the percentage of water one has in one's body. It's not terribly accurate but at least I will have ball park figures from (essentially) week to week. What do others who may be retaining water do to combat this problem?
