I've decided to officially banish the scale from the bathroom until next week's weigh-in. I'm too compulsive about checking my weight and was thrilled when I checked it two days ago and I was down 2 lbs. Then I checked it yesterday and I was down 1.8 lbs. I was bummed about the minor fluctuation, but that would have still put me at a total loss of 5 pounds, so I was happy with that.
Well, I weighed myself this morning for my "official" weekly weigh-in, and I was only down 0.2 lbs! I know our weight fluctuates, but by that much? I was within my calorie ranges all week (and especially yesterday) and I worked out more than usual yesterday, so what gives? I know our body doesn't respond immediately to an increase in calories or an increase in excercise, but I didn't expect such a big fluctuation. Maybe it'll all come off next week? And hopefully even more!
So I'm not going to torture myself with daily weigh-ins this week. It will be hard, but I'm going to wait until next Monday to bring the scale out of banishment.
On a good note, I had someone ask me for the first time today whether I've lost some weight. So even if the scale didn't cooperate, my body has been changing. I've noticed some changes, but this was the first time that someone else did.
