    Could I be cutting weight too fast? Is it even worth it to cut at my size?

    3 weeks ago: https://imgur.com/a/HK9C4Vi

    Me currently: https://imgur.com/a/JiGlzZ7

    I was 168 lbs three weeks ago and I'm currently 161. My first week that I cut, I lost about 2 lbs quickly but that was definitely just water weight. The second week I lost only maybe 1 lb and I decided to cut calories a bit more (about 200 less) so I can be over with this cut sooner. However this week, I've noticed that almost every single day, I lose about half a lb. I calibrate the scale regularly and AFAIK, it's relatively accurate (tested a dumbbell several months ago and since then never dropped this or damaged the equipment).

    I have yet to lose any strength on my main lifts- even got past a plateau on my bench yesterday. I find myself only having a bowel movement about 2-3 times a week now, yet for some reason the scale keeps going down. I am a 5'6 male in my early 20s and my energy levels haven't gone down, though I find myself sleeping longer.

    Someone did bring up the idea of water retention to me, though Idk if that's common 3 weeks into the cut
