I'm a lad, but when I woke up this morning and went the bathroom and caught a sideway glimpse in the mirror, I thought "man do I look fat"

2 hrs later, my face looks normal..

Is this normal?

It's normal if you're a bit dehydrated in the morning.

Oooh, I know what this is!! You're eating too much salt, and thus your body retains water, making your face look like a mashed potato in a sack!!

Drink more water and lay off salty foods.

Haha my sister's face does this, her face doubles in size! I'll tell her to lay off the salt and see if it helps.

It's normal, to a degree. It's simply the water in your body redistributing when you're lying down - when you're upright it goes downwards. If it's particularly puffy or you notice your ankles being particularly puffy in the evening or if your urine is 'frothy' a visit to the GP may be in order.
