I know you’re not supposed to weigh yourself daily because weight fluctuates so much from day to day, but I do. I weigh myself every morning before I get dressed because I actually like to keep track of the fluctuations so I can evaluate what I’ve eaten that made my weight raise or dip. The only reason I bring this up is that for the past few days, I’ve lost a pound every day. I know I should be happy, but I’m a little worried. Isn’t that a lot for someone who isn’t even really exercising? I’m careful to watch what I eat, but I haven’t cut calories thatdrastically! At this rate, I’ll be losing 7 pounds a week, which again, sounds great, but I’m not doing anything that really equates losing that much weight in such a short amount of time. Should I just quit with the worry and be happy that pounds are falling off without much effort or should I be on the phone to my doctor? I’ve never lost weight like this before and aside from being exhausted from a lack of quality sleep the past week, I feel fine. Rapid, unexplained weight loss is just something a lot of horrible illnesses have as a warning flag.
Also, I have noticed a few ladies are starting the Couch to 5k program. I have a question for you and anyone else that might have started and not said anything: Did you download any of the song programs they had posted on that website? There were a couple of options, including one that was strictly music, no talking and one that was all Christian music. Both are set up so that the music tells you when to switch from walking to running so that you don’t have to watch your watch. Has anyone tried that yet or even listened? How did it work for you? Was it something that helped you?
