I know I have to focus on the mini achievements, it's just a thing I have to learn to deal with.
Hope everyone is having a great day.
Welcome tinespeens! I am in the same area as you are (Ottawa Valley)

Some people weigh every day, others only weekly. Since you fear your obsession might drive you crazy, hiding the scale might be a good idea.

Whether you end up weighing weekly or more often than that, as long as you stay 100% on plan, you will love the results. Just stick to it, even if the scale doesn't give you what you were hoping for every time; next time will be better!

Coffee bean-
For what it's worth, I also do not use restricteds. When I was still working on losing my weight last winter and through last summer,I 100% on protocol. IP restricted items all have gluten in them so I limited my self to IP products I was able to use and get pretty easily. (Did not order any of the online places like nashua. Although I did use EAS carb control RTD for travel and variety (also liked that the choc and vanilla drinks are 11 oz instead of 8) and were pretty close to calories/protein and pretty low carbs as IP. Never had a stall..and the slowdowns in my losses after I hit 119 lbs at the end were I am sure casued by being pretty close to ideal weight for my size and in a normal BMI range.

Some people do seem to still lose with using them...but it makes sense that once the weight loss is close to goal...every little thing can be a factor. For most people, it is a lot of little things that add weight and eventually cause a problem.

PS- I also began low intensity workouts 6/days a week in early April and never noticed any change in my wt loss pattern which was established by then.
The only variation in the diet was I allowed myself real egg white omlettes instead of IP. To mimick a packet I used 3 egg white (=under 60 calories) and added mushrooms and spinach and bell peppers to give me a few carbs (under 7-8 is in most IP food. Eas is under 4) and did not usually subtract that small amount from the daily veggie measurment. My goal was to clone the nutrition in a packet.
