Very much depends on how well and long you have slept.
For me if I've only slept an hour or two I may only have lost 0.2kg but a really good nights sleep I usually find that I can lose between 0.7kg to 1.0kg worth.
Also remember this weight loss is reflecting what your metabolism is like with your body at rest. For different people it is different rates. It also doesn't reflect what the metabolism is like when not at rest.
Best not to get too hung up on night losses...that area is too much out of our control - let it be.

Lol! Well, you can see all of mine - I record both PM and AM weights. For some people, it will be affected by certain medical conditions (which is why I track it).

Yes Tams, your views are just as valuable as those of anyone else here, the only thing I found objectionable (not necessarily offensive) was the inference about counting calories as an obsession.
Just as I don't see people who weigh themselves more than once, do I see a problem with that behaviour.
On the other hand.........
People who take delight in having a "dig" do so merely because the passive aggressive nature is something they cannot control, but thankfully maturity (when/if) it comes into play, they grow out of it!!! :roll: Then again, maybe not!!! :oops:

Thanks guys.

Glad it wasn't offensive DDiva. I'm also NOT inferring calorie counting as an obsession (just to be clear :)). I'm saying that for the people inclined toward obsessiveness or control, this can just be another avenue for it. I know I have a small dose of the control tendency in my nature -it's not a bad thing, but it can be a thing that predisposes you toward certain unhealthful behaviours/thinking. And with awareness of this, I can choose more helpful strategies/methodologies/activities in whatever arena. (Just recently I have started some medical treatment that works with/on this aspect of my nature, and I'm finding it really interesting!)

I personally admire anyone who has the discipline to count calories (or points) or manages to keep a food diary (my food diary lasted an extensive 3 days! :shock: :lol: )...the only thing I've managed to do obsessively was record my weight each morning. :lol:

I'm glad YOU had the maturity (and intelligence; it's minimal in some around here :lol: ) to understand my post Tams! :D I was by no means shooting you down, I was slightly taken aback but I wasn't offended, though I was concerned that I may have reciprocated the inference of disrespect in my follow up post to you!!
I see your new strategy/methodology/activity is of a psychological/behavioural nature; ie. delving into the reasons for why you do (or for the sake of this forum) eat a certain way???
Sound very interesting (hence the book you're reading???) You have sparked my curiosity Tams, I am a psychology (double major) graduate from way back :roll: so understanding human behaviour (especially brain function) I'm somewhat quick to identify infantile players of "mind games" like trying to play posters against each other by getting them to "follow" the childish leader!!! :roll: :lol: :lol: :lol: You'd do well to not get embroiled in that Tams, seems to me you're maturity is eons beyond that sad level!! :wink:

I think psychology is interesting too! It seems the older we get, the more we can 'see'. (And it's good to be able to 'see' without getting stuck in an emotional reaction!)

I'm not actually reading a book, but seeing a psychologist - a good one, because from an initial encounter with a psychologist decades ago, I would never have gone near one again! But this one is very human and very, very knowledgable, and very applied. I have homework every day, and it is bringing new insights to many areas of my life (some of them dietary),and the brain-body connection. The primary focus is to help a medical condition though...it just so happens that certain personality types are more represented in this illness than others, hence the 'new' branch of medicine that goes down the psychological path.

Again, glad I didn't offend (or say anything objectionable once explained!)

So you're seeing a psychologist to treat a medical condition, related to your weight or is (any weight gain) a side effect of the emotional state of play???

BTW....you've explained yourself with impeccable style!! Thank you. :wink:

Darn!...I've been caught out! :shock: ...and here I was thinking that I was doing it all so subtly! :lol: :lol: :lol: :wink:

I have a personal theory about psychologists which I've held for years...I think they get into this field not so much to help other people figure themselves but to figure their own selves out! :lol: :wink:

Lol Blitz, I do share somewhat of that sentiment!

But I am learning, as in everything, that there are a few good ones...

Oh, and no, my visits with the psychologist aren't related to weight directly or as a side-effect.

But I have a theory after these couple of visits, that some interesting ramifications may be revealed for how I eat - becasue how we eat is so entwined with our emotions, and our emotions so very much directed by events and our personality type. It's going to be interesting long-term, as a side-note to the main health focus.

The thing I have so far 'discovered' is related to relaxation. Earlier, in my 'personal progress', I made note of how I'd noticed my need to relax had become linked to eating naughty 'foods' (junk really). Of course I hadn't found a way to move forward with this observation. BUT...the very first session I had with the psychologist was focussed on me being ABLE to relax. So I have been given some more tools on how to calm and relax my mind and body. It is yet to be revealed as to whether a new ability to relax will circumvent (even a little) the junk cravings!

Hey Tams,
The relaxation you're referring to, is that through meditation, either in a group session or learning to meditate on your own??? Or is your homework from the psychologist, set techniques to use to get you into a meditative state (of relaxation)???
Either way, there is a great deal of benefit in "meditating" as it relaxes the mind, body and spirit, and even if you end up (like myself at times) :roll: fall asleep, leaves you feeling refreshed and re-energized!!! :D
