At the end of the day progress is progress I guess, I just wanted to make sure I wasn't dropping at an abnormal rate. The only real difference between PSMF and the keto diet I was on previous is the decrease in calories/fat and the increase in protein so I didn't think I was going to lost much water weight past that point anyway.
Trust me, your body does not change the first law of thermodynamics. It's just water weight and a little fat loss. The scale is your worst enemy when on an extreme diet. Use it only as a tool to measure the craziness of your diet and how your body responds to the roller coaster. Using it to monitor changes in body composition will leave you completely confused, depressed or happy all at once.
I frequently see people complain or worry about the way the scale moves. Just adhere to the diet (whatever it is) for the planned period. Go into a 2 week break after that. And finally, AFTER that break, you have a good idea where your body is at. And even then it may not be indicative of the finale result. My own body has been holding pounds of water weight for about a month. That's 4 weeks after the diet ended.
