Hi Goldana! It's nice to hear from someone who is in a situation very similar to mine--I feel like I could have written your entire post myself!
I, too, just started my plan not too long ago. (For me I officially count my "first day" as the 18th--the day of a doctor's appt that really
motivated me!). Also, like you I found that I lost a relatively large amount of weight in a veeery short time: about 16 lbs so far, in just about 10 days. Of course I haven't been doing anything unhealthy to lose, so I'm certainly chalking it up to "beginner's luck" as well. However, like you I've ALSO found that I'm becoming a little too attached to the scale. Ideally, I wanted to weigh myself once a day, but it's quickly turning into a desire to weight myself multiple times throughout the day--when I wake up, after working out, after dinner, etc. I think it's just because I'm getting too addicted to the rush that you get from seeing a dip in the scale, hehe. I can certainly see how that might be a thing for beginner dieters, because I have never made any focused effort to lose weight before, so this is just something I'm not used to at ALL... So I relish in every little dip in the poundage.
But of course it comes back to bite me in the butt if I suddenly gain a couple pounds, because then I go crazy wondering what I did/ate that made it happen! Grrr, such a frustrating feeling. Which in turn makes me want to up my workout or eat less or something so I can lose it again--obviously a reaction that could
lead to something unhealthy if I don't watch myself! I got sick of the emotional roller coaster, so I decided (yesterday, actually, ha) that I'm really going to commit to the idea of weighing myself just once per day. It's sooo tempting to take a peek, just to see how I'm coming along for the day, but I figure if I can resist all my junk food cravings, I certainly should be able to resist a friggin' scale! Haha.
The best advice I can give is that if you really want to weigh yourself a lot, I don't see any real harm in it, as long as you are (as you said) totally aware of all the little fluctuations that will come. For me, I found that it drove me crazy to check so often, but maybe for you it helps you to get that little kick of motivation from looking at the scale! Or, if you find that it's making you a little crazy, too, I'd recommend weighing yourself either in the morning, or after you work out (so far those seem to be the times that I weigh the less
). Whatever works for you!
Best of luck with your weight loss! <3
