    yup as I said earlier, stop weighing yourself. Maximum once per month just to check but use the mirror, clothes and tape measure more often, that will give you a better clue

      Well, when you seem to be losing a steady amount of 1/2 pound to a pound each day, than a 1.2 pound jump overnight is large!! LOL. Don't worry, in 3 weeks my scale will be packed up with my household goods for shipment and I won't have a scale for 2 months.

        I had started spotting the day before this, and when I start spotting, I am 2-4 days out from the onset of my period. I figured it must just be water weight, I just wasn't expecting it. This is the first period since starting the Primal Blueprint.

          unless you are insanely morbidly obese, that doesn't sound like a healthy amount of weight loss to me. 1-2lbs per week is pretty much a healthy range for fat loss. since you are new to this type of eating, those numbers are most definitely water weight loss. probably due to the arbitrary low-carb thing. so when you actually ate some carbs one day, you gained a little water weight back. ditching the scale will definitely be the best thing for you

            I am very definitely not morbidly obese. And I had not had any extra carbs that day, I went back and read my original post and it was not clear, but I ate 3 low carb pancakes, not regular full carb pancakes. Anytime I start a weight loss regime, I always lose weight that quickly. Even if it is just counting calories and hitting the gym. I also did walk 27 miles the first week I did PB. So that plus the lowcarb eating may have contributed to the weight loss. Anyway, I am on my cycle now, so am assuming it is all water weight or bloating, so when I get off and have given myself a week or so to adjust again, I will reweigh and see where I am. I do thank you all for your comments though! I had a slight moment of panic!

              You would be highly atypical to experience weight loss linearly like that. If you were to have plotted your results over the years, you would probably find that extended periods of linear weight loss are the exception, rather than the rule.

                Just to let you know, honey is a carb (17g/serving), and low carb pancakes are still pancakes. By now you may have seen the weight drop off. Don't sweat the small scales gains, advice was given to weigh in once a week, that way, along with a food diary, you can keep track of your weight, and what affects it.

                On a side bar, although in a lab 3,500 calories is equal to one pound, calories in/calories out is not accurate. Many people have food intolerances, I, for one, cannot eat watermelon, it makes me gain 5 lbs with just a one cup serving! Everyone is different, and react differently to different foods.

                  what is a low-carb pancake? make paleo/primal about eating real food. something tells me that there isn't much real food in a low-carb pancake.

                    I go up and down everyday. I have only lost a total of 6lbs in 2 months but my photos tell a different story. I have also lost 2 inches on my waist.

                    Don't be so concerned with day-to-day weight. If you HAVE to worry about pounds then at least only compare bi-weekly or even monthly weights.
                    The above should be viewed as complete and utter nonsense.
