If there is one thing I learned from SP while losing weight, it was to NOT step on the scale daily. I weighed in once a week, period, while losing. But once I hit my goal, I started to weigh in every single day. And I need to stop! I cannot emotionally or mentally handle those fluctuations in the numbers - they can make or break my day, nutrition-wise.
I think I'm going to try to force myself to only weigh in once a week from now on, and see what happens. It is a very scary thing, going into maintenance mode, because you're so used to eating fewer calories and suddenly upping your calories seems like it's going against everything we've learned so far.
Anyway, I'm glad your weigh-in was a pleasant surprise and hopefully you'll gain a bit of confidence from this so you won't be so afraid of your next weigh-in!
