when you have a bowel movement do you lose weight?

Yes: Technically yes but it's an insinsible loss, much like sweating or urinating. It is not weight loss in the true sense of losing fat. From this prespective, every time you eat or drink you gain weight. This is why a persons weight varies throughout the day. The best way to probably weigh yourself is to weigh in the morning after using the bathroom and before eating.
