As much fun as it is to see the daily instant results it's probably not good for our mindset later. It will eventually cause extra stress. If you came to MDA looking for a CW instant results diet you'll be disappointed. I fell into this trap myself. In the first month and a half I dropped 26 lbs so I continued to check the scale frequently (Sometimes in the morning and at night). unfortunately the high expectations to continue to drop it like it's hot (yes I went there) set me up for some disappointing weigh ins when I went from shape shifter to bite sized dropper. Where I was maintaining decent weightloss in the beginning I'm now down to about a pound and a half a week. Slow and steady, I'm more than happy watching the weight slowly. But weighing every day can become a stress on your progress. I find I lose a bit more if I don't touch the scale at all between sunday weigh ins. I find myself cheating all the time. Hell, I grabbed the scale yesterday and cheated. But when I give in and check i find those weeks to be smaller losses (I know, I know... I've already set myself up... for a bad one)
