i wouldn't worry about it making you lose weight, all you'll lose is water weight which you can easily replenish.
bacteria and fungi can be a concern, it comes down to how well it's maintained and sterilized on a regular basis. having some experience in this, i can tell you that most public facilities are NOT cleaned adequately. however you can do a few things to ensure you're safe. wear flip-flops, and lay a towel down wherever you sit down. it's simply barrier protection, and if you shower afterwards with soap you should be okay. that said, showers are cleaned more often, but also used more often so wear your flipflops there as well.
